I love Corel Painter and I love my Wacom Intuos 5 Touch. I have been rather busy of late, and since we have had several new Wacom Tablet Drivers, I messed up and lost my preferences. I hadn’t set them up completely anyway, and I had always planned to do a series of videos about how my settings, so now seemed the perfect opportunity to do a series of videos showing the how and why of my settings. I tried to keep each video under 5 minutes, but failed miserably. I don’t think I had one over 8 minutes though.
Please note, I am using a Wacom Intuos 5 Touch. If you are using an Intuos 4 or an Intuos 5 without Touch, I think the videos will still hold interest.
The first video is a quick introduction to Wacom Tablet Properties.
The second video talks about programing the Grip and Art Pens.
The third and fourth videos concern touch.
The fifth video is about Express Keys. Since we can only program functions that have shortcut commands, I needed to create shortcut commands for several functions. This video explains making shortcut keys.
The sixth video is also about Express Keys. I demonstrate how to make the Express Keys work only in Painter.
Video 7 is all about the Touch Ring
Video 8 explains the Radial Menu.
And the last video…number 9…wraps it up with saving the preferences.
OK, that’s it for this post. I do need to apologize for never finishing the painting using Painter Lite. I got sidetracked and simply lost interest in the painting. Then, everyday, I put pressure on myself to finish it. It was awful. I may or may not finish the painting. Right now I want to do some other stuff in Painter.
For those of you who enjoy hearing about Kevin from time to time, I have to report I haven’t seen him in a while. I don’t know where he is; I assume he is still living in my computer. I recently moved a whole bunch of stuff to an external hard drive; I hope he didn’t get lost in the move. Anyway, as soon as I can find him, I’ll give you a report on what he has been up to.
Take care my friends, and I hope you enjoy this post,
