Use a big round brush and outline shape tool.

Sir
Thanks Sir I am sorry I did not get it could you please explain it again?
I am trying to understand if we can create rounded shapes like a rectangle with round edges is there a way ?

In the TVP Documentation it is mentioned using grid but not sure how to get that perfect rounded edge

Here is the link https://www.tvpaint.com/doc/tvp11/index ... uides-grid

Please let me know.
Thanks again for your help
Regards

I would also be interested to know how the grid assists in drawing a square with round corners (unless it means using the grid as a guideline along with using the Bezier spline tool as Svengali mentions in his note above?)

-------

Svengali (and also Slowtiger) already mentioned how to do it: make a round brush with the radius of your rounded corners , then use the rectangle shape (outline , not the filled rectangle) to draw your square or rectangle. Before I saw Sven's post , I had already made a few screen shots for you, so here they are:

The documentation is misleading: there's no setting anywhere to create shapes with rounded edges.
