I cannot get the Art Pen's rotation to control the width of a 0% roundness brush tip. If I set the angle control to be tilt it works, but this is not natural for me. These are both with the jitter slider set to zero, as that just seems to add randomness to the thickness of a brush stroke. I want to control the roundness by rotating the 6d pen, and it does not work.
Are there any other settings I need to switch? The size control set to pressure with 0 jitter works fine.
I just checked, and the rotation sensing works perfectly in Illustrations with the Wacom 6D brushes.
I must be doing something wrong in photoshop, but I followed
the wacom tutorial exactly.
Are you in CS4? I've seen several posts talking about problems with the rotation control in that version.
Rotation works in CS3, but is bugged in CS4.
Thanks Mark and Chris,
Chris, is it likely that this will be fixed with an update?
I hope so.
It would also be really helpful if the non-round painting cursors changed orientation as the brush is rotated.
Changing the cursor is another matter entirely.
We'll have to see if the OS cursor APIs can keep up now (they used to be too slow).
Even if it was limited to smaller cursor sizes, that'd be a major improvement.
I'm posting from France. I use a French version of Photoshop CS4. I also had problems with the rotation of my Wacom 6D art pen and found that the 11.0.1 update should have solved this problem. I installed the last update and it still doesn't work. When I go to the brushes settings and select shape dynamics and rotation for the angle jitter, there is still the exclamation point indicating it doesn't work. I installed the last Wacom drivers (Intuos3) and started to think my pen was broken but when I try it with my old CS2 version, the rotation works perfectly... Any idea? Is there another update incoming?
his feature request would then be, you add that brush ghosting to Photoshops standard brushes and make it behave like it does in Painter, which gives you a live preview of your brushes rotation while you paint. Not just before you start the stroke. I would love that.
