Hello. I downloaded Painter 2020 for trial. I'd like to give my specs the end of my message for the issue I'm dealing with. It seems like Painter doesn't have a support for some iMac 5K retina models. Or maybe it doesn't support graphic card yet. Software runs very slow when you launch it. Moving a page, rotating it, any brush stroke takes ages. It's so laggy and slow impossible to use. It's obvious something wrong with it. When you run the software in Low Resolution Mode it runs faster as it should be. Low Resolution mode is non Retina display mode. So either your software doesn't support retina algorithm or graphic card or everything related to hardware itself. Any plans to fix this issue soon?
iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017
Processor: 3,4 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
Memory: 16GB 2400 mhz DDR
Graphic Card: Radeon Pro 570 4gb
I have the same issue with my MacBook Pro 2019, built in screen and external 4K monitor. It's pretty disappointing how badly it works, especially since I used to rely on Painter for work, though I'm moving away from it as my primary illustration tool with a quickness.
I think it's wise to move away. In year 2020, such things are not acceptable in professional working area. Most people rely on those softwares to get job done earn money. I'm surprised actually Painter doesn't have a support for new hardwares since it keeps releasing under a title Painter 2020. And those Retina display was exists for a very very long time. Either nobody report or nobody or less people had a chance to try Painter on such hardwares. Or they reported but Corel didn't care about this issue since it's still exists. Having not even a single response from dev team in this post, explains they don'T care about it seems so. Maybe it was/is a hobby software and I shouldn't have expected a professional approach from Corel no idea.
I'm not sure if you've tried paintstorm studio, but it has scalable interface, GPU optimized brushes, and its most recent update now supports 4k pixel brush sizes.
unless you're using painter for its complex watercolor and thick paint simulations, you can substitute most of what you're doing with paintstorm with an occasional dab into artrage or rebelle for less digitally looking brushes.
painter support for mac tends to lag behind.
Yep, it didn't work due its random crashes but I settled on a great software called Artstudio Pro. I replied to you post in a very detailed way but Painter decided to put my reply under investigation which for no reason.
yeah this board tends to swallow comments once in a while - anyway I'm glad you've found a suitable alternative.
I've tried artstudio pro in the past - it's a good app, but it lacked blending between layers at the time, which painter and paintstorm both implement.
