Hello, I've just got a copy of Corel Painter IX and I was trying out some tutorials. Supposedly, the Pen tool has some kind of pressure, when you control it, you can make the brush size varie. I've tried controlling the pressure but my line looks all the same. Do I need a WACOM Tablet to controll the pressure? Or can I controll the pressure with the mouse?
and How can you controll the pressure with the mouse? (What am I doing wrong?)

Thanks alot!

You need to get a tablet to control pressure.

While it doesn't take the place of a Wacom tablet you can playback stored strokes in Painter.

On the Brush Selector bar, click the menu arrow, then choose Strokes, and choose one of the following:
Pressure Modulate varies the stylus pressure in a brush stroke.
360 Bearing Rotate rotates the stylus bearing by 360.
Size/Bearing Modulate varies the size of the brush tip and stylus bearing in a brush stroke.
Size/Tilt Modulate varies the size of the brush tip and tilt of the stylus in a brush stroke.
Fade In/Out fades the start point and endpoint of a brush stroke.
Short Stroke decreases the length of a brush stroke.
Bearing Rotate rotates stylus bearing in a brush stroke.
