So i used to use Corel Painter on Mac. Now i switched to PC. Now im having a super annoying issue and i dont know how to fix it.
Every line i draw has weird breaks in it and does not come out smooth. A line that is drawn super fast and smooth somehow comes out with a wiggly look. This does not happen in photoshop, and does not happen on Corel on my Mac. Here is 2 pictures. One where i draw smooth lines the way they are supposed to look, and the weird slightly wiggly lines that Corel is giving me currently.
Smooth Normal Lines
Weird Wiggly Lines
Any help or ideas would be appreciated. (I tried re-installing the program a couple times, downloading different wacom drivers, different brushes, plugging tablet into different usb, turning on and off windows ink, etc)
I went to windows>settings>system >Display and changed "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" from 150% to 100%. And magically i have the smoothest lines ever like i used to, And i can switch it back and forth between 150% scaling and 100% and get the problem to come and go.
Did you try brush calibration in Painter?
yes i did. It obviously changes ho the brush works, but the wiggly effect is still present no matter what. I thought maybe it would simply be a driver issue, but i tried almost 15 different drivers and no luck. (Intuos Pro Large) Not sure where to go from here. Only option is to maybe uggrade my version of Corel and hope that fixes it, but thats an expensive route and might not work anyway.
Which brush or all of them? Don't know what version of Painter you have but I don't think upgrading will help nor updating anymore drivers.. Depending on the brush, there may be something in the brush settings- I'm just not familiar enough with the problem to help. Wacom also has it's own settings too.
Also review this thread- been a problem in Painter for a long time.
So actually i solved my problem. It turns out i was getting wiggly lines even in photoshop, not just Corel. And the fix was something i never seen anyone suggest, but i just did it randomly and it worked.
I went to windows>settings>system >Display and changed "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" from 150% to 100%. And magically i have the smoothest lines ever like i used to, And i can switch it back and forth between 150% scaling and 100% and get the problem to come and go. I cant believe. Someone was talking about multiple monitors maybe being a problem, so i was messing around in display settings and randomly chose to change that.
It kind of sucks of course because i have a 4k monitor, and not having 150% text scaling makes things very hard to read, because everything is so small. But god damn im happy i fixed it.
Thanks for the replies though and help!
