How can you draw a line with pen pressure within DR?

Is there a way to draw lines in Davinci Resolve that simulates pen pressure? The end of the line gets thinner right as you are ending it. Similar to how the plugin "Saber" from "After Effects" uses it. Or should I use a third party software, create the line within that third party software and import it into Davinci Resolve?

It's a bit of both. You can actually draw with a pressure sensitive pen in the paint tool of Fusion, but this only works for manual strokes, not plolylines etc.

But you can also install the Fuse you can find here

which is technically 3rd party, but it works inside of Resolve/Fusion, so you won't have to import it seperately.

Alas, it only does a single segment of a bezier curve, not a full polyline. One of these days I'll figure out how to render an entire spline.
