I have received a number of requests from different places to help folks with brush installation in Painter 12. I have a video for the subject in my class Painter 12, a New Beginning. I have decided to post that here to help folks with brush installation.
REVISED INFORMATION: Dated 2/28/2012
Painter 12.1 has changed the way brush management works significantly. This video recommends installing brushes in what I refer to as the Applications Area, which we had to do for Painter 12 and Painter 12 with SP-1. Now, I would recommend installing in the User Area. I have a new page, Brush Management for Painter 12.1 that is specific to the changes in 12.1. If you are not upgrading, then this page has the information that you need. I highly recommend that everyone upgade to Painter 12.1.
Back to the original material:
You will also learn about brush libraries and why you need them. One of the problems that is occurring has to do with a problem in the software. Normally, I would suggest loading brushes in the user area, but the software will ultimately think the brush category is empty. So, in this video, I am showing how to load in the application area. If this changes in a later patch, I’ll change the video. If you have questions, please let me know.
