It doesn't use GPU acceleration
Not on my MacBookPro 2013 with Nvidia Geforce GT 750 M 2 go + intel iris pro
Not on my Macpro 2009 16 Go Ram, SSD boot, with Ati HD 4870 500 mo
or more recent
Radeon RX 580 4 Go I just by for Corel Painter use.
The support says it is not use in case of CPU is faster than GPU but this is bullshit.
Mu trusty great but old 2,93 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2009
cannot be faster
than a 2017 GPU.
I think Corel does not give what it promise nowadays.
Happy new year everybody.
The brushes who were very GPU accelerated (from an earlier version) are the liquid ink version. they are lighting fast. they were supposed to tease what Gpu accelerated brushes will became.
i dream of a Corel painter team who would give us :
-a high end realistic brushes set, with a few amazing brushes we can’t tell from the real life ones :
-oils / watercolors / inks / conté / pencil / inks / markers
My apologies, I didn't intend to upset you, I see you have a lot of concerns about Painter. I just wanted to share how it works on my systems..it may not be the same on all systems.
By the way, have you tried any of the thick paint brushes in the "Natural Media Brushes" library? They can be found under the :"Acrylics" and "Oils" categories, and are a bit different than the Thick Paint brushes in the default library.
Also, have you checked Skip's website for thick paint brushes? He has some custom brushes free for download: https://skipallenpaints.com/skips-thick-paint-brushes-download/
His brushes are always awesome.
krisLap said:From the old days, they made brushes with analog artists, not only programers.
How are you certain that artists are not contributing to new brushes in Painter? Where did you get this information?
Again, hopefully this information is seen as helpful/factual, as my goal here is to help everyone enjoy Painter. :)
Thank you for your help.
if you read my post entirely i was talking about skip Allen brushes ;-)
I buyer his last course too.
If he collaborated on Two last painter, some ofhis great brushes would be in the software.
"How are you certain that artists are not contributing to new brushes in Painter? Where did you get this information?"
If artist collaborate or not on Painter 2019 / 2020, the result is some default brushes aren't artistic at all.
Just take a look at Artrage 6 (demo) and how their oil blends with tool / color option / realistic color blending (blue + yellow = Green), they mix well, we're on another quality standard.
Idem for Escape Motion's rebelle for watercolor, the best for watercolor digital simulation.
I love Corel Painter and I have great expectations for the future :
My response to AZA :
-oils / watercolors / inks / conté / pencil / inks / markers ( like in the natural média)
