I have been fighting this program the last few days. I have been painting i love how the brushes feels. But there is one big issue i have, its the fact that the brushes sometimes makes stray strokes. If i move the pen slow, it happens. If i move the pen fast it happens. It does not happen in photoshop, nor in paintstorm or sketchbook. Happens with and without touch on or off. most of the time the stray strokes goes stray at the end of the stroke for some annoying reason.
As you can see in the image the brushstrokes sometimes jump but most of the time to the right side. Why does this happen? and how can i stop it? i have tried cpu brushes, GPU brushes, and reinstalling the program, Reseting the drivers on the wacom cintiq. Tested older and newest drivers.
Tablet > Wacom cintiq pro 16
OS: Windows 10
this problem emerged around painter 10 (or a version earlier) and never really went away; painter's windows version seems to be most affected.
it seems to be the worst with the artists oils (an oil simulation brush you're mostly using for that picture) most, but is not limited to them.
I'm afraid there's nothing you can do to resolve this on your side, with the exception of regular undoing and painting over again when this starts happening.
Suspected as much which is a shame, Because the brushes are wonderful (when they work which is not often enough). But if i cant use them effectively, then they are just an distraction and waste of my time:(
on a side-note, you might want to try artrage. it has a similar oil toolset (artrage guys wrote the mixer palette for painter, which stemmed into artists oils later) and it doesn't have the intrusive stroke bug, but artrage doesn't blend across layers like painter or paintstorm do.
it has a pretty sick impasto effect though.
I have definitely see this issue; however I have also seen many artists resolve the issue by upgrading their Wacom driver. Sounds like you've tested older and newest drivers...may I ask which versions?
I remember this one, at one time I had it appearing in both painter AND photoshop. At the time I was using a Toshiba tabletPC. Few years back now. Later it appeared briefly on my Cintiq but was resolved pretty quickly. In the end it WAS the WACOM driver/windows envronment rather than the software: neither painter nor photoshop (nor the hardware) had changed, only the operating system and the way the updated drivers interacted with it. I think back then I had to revert to an older driver until the new driver was updated.
