I’ve downloaded the trial of Painter 11 and have been trying it out as I’m considering the upgrade from IX.5. What is immediately apparent is that with my Intuos 3 it will often miss a beat and skip a stroke, refusing to apply any paint at all until you start a new stroke. This happens at all pen pressures and velocities, once the stroke has failed to start no amount of pen pressure will make anything appear. It can happen as regularly as every 6 to 9 strokes, or at longer intervals but it never goes fully away.
It is happening with all brush types, both the old style brushes and the new ‘real’ ones. Toggling Enhanced Brush Ghosting on and off doesn’t help (though with this on there’s a noticable lag when the stroke is skipped). I have tried setting my Brush Tracking under Preferences but this doesn’t help. I have up to date Wacom drivers.
My system is:
Vista 64 Home Premium, 8 GB RAM, Q6600 CPU, Wacom Intuos 3 A5 Wide
This is really frustrating and a real show stopper. Has anyone else encountered this and/or got any solutions?
