Corel Painter Brush Lag on New Layer

When I first purchased Corel Painter 12, all the brushes lagged. I searched google and was able to download a hot fix, and it seemed to work, so long as the brushes were all on one layer. Now, when I try to paint on a new layer, I still get brush lag (only on a layer that is not canvas layer, anything above the bottom layer lags). Is there a different fix for this kind of brush lagging?

Thank you

Have you updated to the latest 12.2 version?

Also, if you are using a Wacom Tablet, the issue can be with in conjuction with Painter. There was also some major issues we had with certain Wacom Drivers and After Effects and certain effects.

Fes - I have not updated to the latest 12.2, would that help the issue? I read about what the latest update does, sometimes I donít like to update if itís not something I would find useful (which the latest update didnít seem all that useful to me) because it takes up more space. But if it might help Iíll give it a go, thank you for the reply!

jburford - Iím using an Intuos 4, Iíll check google to see if anyone else had a problem with it. Itís just odd that it would only lag on a new layer and have something to do with the tablet - thanks for the reply and info!

Does it still lag if you hide the other layers you are not working on?
I like to learn.

Dillster - Yes, it seems if it's not all on one canvas layer, the brushes don't like to work properly (if they are small enough they'll work, but any large size really hangs it up). Any size brush will work on the canvas layer, but any layer beyond that doesn't work well.

Only happening at larger brush sizes might mean graphics card related. What card have you got, did you update to the latest drivers?
I like to learn.
