Brush creator problems
Hello, I wondered if anyone could tell me how to get back the brushes as they were originally after manipulating them in the brush creator?
I played around with one of my favorite brushes (the round camelhair) in the brush creator, and now it's stuck as a useless pointy ever-changing color blob.
I just can't seem to get it back as it was!
Can anyone help?
6. Paste the Round Camelhair.xml file you copied from the Painter X application/program folder in Step 3.
7. Launch Painter X, open a new Canvas, and select the Oils' Round Camelhair variant. Painter X or Painter X.1 will automatically regenerate the following files and write them to the Painter X User folder where you deleted the files in Step 5:
I use painter 9 when I work in the labs in the library for class (i'm the only painter user in my entire class, i'm fairly sure, they can't help me) and find that default variants for certain things are different.
one such example is that the opacity is set to pressure on ALL oil brushes in painter 9, however not so in painter 10 (at least my version, which is educational version for the moment). What's up?
Unless someone using Painter IX (IX 9.1 or IX.5) in the lab made brush control adjustments, then save the brush variant without changing its name (overwriting the default)....
If you have Painter IX.5 installed on the lab computer, and check the Oils' variants after restoring them to their default state, you'll find many are set to Opacity Expression: None. The others are set to Opacity Expression: Pressure.
The same is true in Painter X.1.
I expect it's also true in Painter IX and IX 9.1 as well as in Painter X.
There are lots of things that are different in each new Painter version, some just different, and some entirely new.
Why? My guess is the developers and Painter users wanted things changed, to improve Painter.
Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!
