Brush spacing

When I use a small brush to draw a stroke really fast, instead of a connected line I get a series of dots. Is there a 'spacing' setting like in Photoshop which controls how precise the stroke is?

Thanks in advance

I wonder if increasing memory would help? Or quitting other programs running in the background.

Hi marcel....


i get the same effect when using my pen. You can try the mouse and see if it does a little better or you can drawa bit slower.

but try going to the strokes menu and turning up the mouse averaging. I can usually get away with setting it to 2 but sometimes I have to set it a little higher.

That should help eliminate that dots effect in your stroke.

Nope, the mouse averaging doesn't do the trick. I've used both the Wacom tablet and a normal mouse, no luck with either :(

Have you tried hiding some of the geometry to see if it's a CPU performance issue? What I do when I can't edit with the brush, ie the bumps, I usually move to the deco brush in Projection Master.

Maybe those two ideas will help you?

i would recamened not to set the draw less then 3
on top you have stroke
set the stroke to free hand

set your mouse average up a bit
might allso set your intensity up high.

brush spacing

Hey,

You have a memory issue here. There are a couple of ways to fix this:

You can hide areas you are not working on. Use shift/ctrl and draw a box aroudn the area you wanna isolate to work on. This increases performance and usually does the trick if you hide enough polys.

Or, you can draw much slower.

Hope this helps,

-Matt
