Painter IX brushes work on both Windows and Mac.
You have them if you own Painter IX as does anyone who owns Painter IX. Anything installed with Painter, including brushes both installed with the program and extras on the CD may not be shared.
If you mean custom brush variants people create and share, there are lots of them available on the Web to download for Painter 7, Painter 8, and Painter IX.
Painter 7 and Painter 8 custom brush variants can be used in Painter IX though, depending on the brush technolory, some of they may not work the same in Painter IX.
Custom brushes from Painter 6 and earlier versions must be platform specific (for Mac or for PC). After you download the .BRS brush library file, you can use it in Painter by doing the following:
1. In the Brush Selector menu, click the Load Library command.
2. Click the Import button, locate the .BRS brush library file, and click the Open button.
3. Wait while Painter IX converts the .BRS brush library file to a brush library folder, brush category folders with .JPG brush category icon image files, .XML brush variant files and, for any Captured Dab brush variants, .JPG Captured Dab image files, then places those folders and files in the correct location in the Corel > Corel Painter IX > Brushes folder.
4. Click the Load button and your brush library will now be loaded and ready to use in Painter IX.
Again, depending on the brush technology, some of the older version brushes may not work the same in Painter IX as they did in the earlier versions.
There are some custom brushes on my PixelAlley site you're welcome to download. The URL is below my signature.
You'll find others on Ryan Church's site, Lunatique's site, and on Sandman's site.
