Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding where Painter controls each of the axes, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Painter.
- Painter's Expression function is the key…to controlling how a Wacom pen and tablet…specifically modify your brushstrokes in real time.…And it shows up in several of the Brush Control panels.…Using this Expression function, you can utilize…the various axes of motion to control your needs.…Let's take a look.…Now first of all, you need to realize that…of the six dimensions, there is X and Y,…so you've got X and Y, that's automatically…taken care of by the tablet and pen.…So there's no real control over those,…it's just where your pen is on the tablet…and consequently, where it is on the screen.…
So that's the first two axes.…But I'm going to open up the Brush Controls palette.…And right here, is the Expression pop-up.…And let's just open it up so you can see what it is.…Basically, there are a set of controls in here…and if we look at it, we have the ones…that are associated with the six axes of control.…"Pressure," "Tilt," "Bearing," and "Rotation."…And of course there are these other ones,…"Velocity," "Direction," "Wheel," "Source," and "Random."…
- Exploring the six axes of motion
- Adjusting pressure sensitivity
- Assigning functions to the Touch Ring and stylus buttons
- Using tilt, bearing, and barrel rotation to control strokes
