The current system is an array that gets chopped into dimensions. I
tried to test four things at the same time, multiple layers of N*M
brushes gives three, layers grouped in two sets gives the 4th. Tilt
eats two by itself.
The issues with GIH being rare is that you have to "load, edit, save"
for every slight change, and that the interface to create those 4
groups is not so good. So it becomes cumbersome, even when you have
the source file (without, it just becomes insane), and the real use
decreases. If you do not have to create or tweak them, then they are
So notice where is the problem, creation/edit, not the pipes per se.
