I am learning Corel Painter 2017 and currently have only a novice level of skill with it. One of the problems I have encountered is that it bogs down considerably when doing real watercolor and real oil with a canvas of about 16" X 23" at 300 dpi, which is the size I usually work on in Photoshop. I have seen a tutorial that suggests working on a smaller/lower resolution canvas and then upsizing/uprerezzing at print time.I don’t believe that this is a good idea because the upsized/uprezzed canvas will be degraded. I want the output to be professional level.
So I am considering upgrading my computer. Currently I have an Intel Core i7-4930k processor with 32 gbs of Ram.
My questions are:
(1) If I upgrade to a workstation with a multicore processor (say 10x) and 64 gbs of ram, will that eliminate the computer’s choking with real watercolor/oils?
(2) If not, how far upscale in computer power do I need to go to resolve the problems I am having with Corel Painter? Or is there currently no solution to this problem?
