Grow mask function

I know this was requested a year ago already but maybe it got buried, and I think it’s quite an important feature.

(and probably quick to implement, it’s just blur+add existing mask)

my dreamy vision: :nerd_face:

That would be a fantastic thing, but unfortunately I don’t think that will work. It would require something like a +/- offset and such an offset does not seem to work. But let’s wait and see.

In ZBrush “Grow mask” is just a blur that adds back the existing mask, no radius or offset or anything. That would be more than enough.

So it’s almost like a normal blur but the important difference is that already masked areas don’t become any less masked, which is what happens with the normal blur.

Btw Zbrush shrink is also just invert mask → grow mask → invert mask
