    rastering rascal


      i have many layers when I draw in illustrator. I rastersize the image before I send it to photoshop then rastersize it again however the oil paint feature just turns into little speckles even though in the preview it shows its going to do it the way I want it. What am I doing wrong?


      Kind Regards

            Hi. My first question is whether you're rasterizing to 300dpi in Illustrator, so that there're sufficient pixels for your Photoshop image.


            If that's not the issue, I can tell you of my attempts.


            Not sure of your OS or graphics card, but I found problems on mine (with Mac OS 10.10.5 Yosemite) and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 to actually CRASH when I was trying your method. I changed 2 things, and it worked perfectly.


            Firstly instead of placing the file and rasterizing it again, after going into PS, I did rasterize it in AI, then simply OPENED it with Photoshop. I'm not sure why that made a difference, except that it was already rasterized and never placed as a Smart Object.


            Here's where I think it really made a difference, though - I went to Preferences>Performance. Then, where the option for using graphics processor acceleration is - I opened "Advanced Settings" I changed my drawing mode from Advanced to Normal - putting less pressure on my graphics card. All went well and my image worked perfectly.


            Hope that helps. Otherwise, Please give us some more information on your operating system, and graphics card.
