I'm trying to figure out how to make it so my brush doesn't have unlimited paint on it. From what I can tell from the Painter manual, I have to set "dryout" to a low value, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I'm missing something! Thank you very much for your assistance and suggestions.
Dryoff depends on which brush you are using...many, but not all Painter brush technologies support it.
Which version of Painter, and which brush are you using?
If you don't have a specific brush in mind, let us know which type of brush experience you want to have and we can help find one that either already has a nice dryout experience and/or edit one to have that experience.
For example in Painter 2022:
-Most of the brushes in Oils : Artsts are pre-configured to dryout
-Some brushes in Oils : Bravura dryout
-if you want rich, heavy-body paint, Thick Paint : Bristles has Loaded Trailoff and Dry Trailoff
Just to name a few...
Thank you so much for the help! It turns out that I was using the wrong brush. I had chosen Oils: Medium Bristle, thinking that it looked like the most typical-looking brush. Turns out that I was wrong!
I chose the Soft oil brush instead and it works exactly as I expected.
Now that I can really give it a proper go (using the demo of Painter 2022), I can jump in and get a good feel for the software, without banging my head about this brush thing. :)
Have a great weekend, and thanks again for the assistance!
No problem Joe, glad I could help...enjoy and have fun!
