I had gotten several packs of brushes for essentials and I was really loving them. I was assuming I'd still be able to use them once I upgraded. However it doesn't seem to be working. Is this not something I'm able to do? I really loved the hair brushes and lightning brush packs.
Wow, that's not really great customer service at all.. 2021 do look like a great and big upgrade with many possiblities.. But I do feel discouraged, because what happens when 2022 arrives? Do they just screw, those customers who made purchases in that program, over then?.. A shame, I was really starting to get into the program :/
Yes, I've been working to try and recreate some. I really love the hair pack and the lightning packs. I used them alot.
I used the monthly subscription option as I was able to afford that and it allows me to continue to upgrade as new editions come out.
Ah, there may be a bit of confusion here. Brushes are forwards compatible in Corel Painter. Heck, only half joking, most of the Painter 2021 brushes are from Painter 2015 (I think that was the gold standard of compatibility) and you can still import brushes from earlier versions (although I think it's slightly more complicated for much earlier ones, before they settled on the current format). Essentials just isn't compatible with Corel Painter.
Oooh okay.. I think I'm a bit confused about how it works, yes.So if I bought brush packs in Corel Painter Essentials 7 I can't imort/tranfser them to Corel Painter 2021?
I don't know the correct answer here, not part of Corel support, but my understanding is that Corel Essentials and Corel Painter use different file formats for brushes, quite possibly to keep the people who own Painter from just giving all of their brushes to the people using Essentials (since the big differences between the two are brush availability, brush customization, and price). I personally don't get why they wouldn't encourage people to upgrade to Painter by allowing them to bring their Essentials brushes with them, but maybe there is something fundamentally difficult about transferring them.
