This command imports brush presets from BodyPaint 3D Release 2.5 or earlier. These previous vesions did not use the Content Browser to manage brushes.
A dialog window will open when this command is selected. Next, navigate to your old BodyPaint 3D directory, open the prefs folder and load the bodypaint_brushes.b3d file. The presets will then be converted to a Content Browser library. This library can then be found in its default location in the current Cinema 4D / BodyPaint 3D folder (library / browser / bodypaintuser.lib4d).
This command is available for selection if you have selected a Brush Preset and made modifications to its parameters. The existing Brush Preset can be overwritten, if desired.

The + button lets you create a directory for a selected element. Click on OK to save the color (the currently selected color preset can be overwritten).

Exports the selected elements (as "*.lib4d" library). This can be done with individual colors or entire directories. These directories can in turn be imported via the Import BodyPaint Presets command.

If this option is enabled, the icons are displayed as a vertical list and their names are specified. The active icon is indicated by a frame.
Choose the size of the icons: small, medium or large.
