Is there a way to record a digital painting

Hello,

Does anyone know of a way to record a digital painting stroke by stroke. I am looking for something which doesn't display the cursor but does display the strokes as they draw out.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Spencer

I think if you use Camtasia, you can set an option that allows you to not record the cursor, as it records that as separate data. There is a trial version if you want to try that.

Hi Ackdoh,

Unfortunately that means you're stuck at screen resolution, plus it picks up all the canvas navigation.

I know as well that photoshop can 'Allow tool recording' but it's only a half baked solution and doesn't record the actual strokes being drawn.

After effects can also be used in conjunction with Illustrator using the stroke effect but again it's only half a solution.

I'm surprised there hasn't been something made that does this with all the advances in digital art.

Thanks

Spencer

Thanks norberto. Same restrictions as I outlined above though in my case.

Is there a certain technique you're going for with the brush stroke recordings?

Yes I've got a job on that requires a motion graphic sequence showing an oil painting being created. Ideally I'd be looking for a large video, 4000x4000 pixels that could be brought into ae for close-ups across the canvas showing the strokes being painted.

I was hoping zbrush or maya could do it but I've also looked at photoshop, painter and a couple of others and I'm coming up with blanks.

I think zbrush might be able to do it on very high spec machine but mine can't handle the 4k canvas in realtime.
