Details Please?

PM: As I mentioned in a post in another thread on DP2, there are hundreds of combinations of the variable "knobs" or settings. I tried the Pelican image after some PS7 preprocessing, and got nothing even remotely like what you displayed.

This is where a little more detailed explanation could go a long way towards helping me (at least and probably others) know a little more about the settings.

I have the Wet and Thick brush from Wet Materials, after setting up Clone first. Can you remember (or recreate the settings you used)

Brush Scale setting
Feather
Strength
(Paint Valley unchecked)?
No Canvas check
Smudge Setting
Mixing Setting
Background loading
Clone from lower layer checked
Layer Below from drop down list
In transparent area, smudge using Current Layer
Finally, any changes to the Jitter,Smooth, Spacing or Brush Stroke settings?

I truly tried many combinations of the above settings and succeeded only in smudging and smearing the image. What was your secret?

I should say that if you used all of the default settings from Wet & Thick, then can you speculate why my attempt just smeared the colors around on the screen.

Thanks for any details you can share on this step in the process.

Ken

i wonder also if irfanview would be able to handle a .dp2 image. i'm not currently using irfanview, so if anyone else has it and uses it, perhaps you could check these .dp2 files in it. irfanview is known for file transposes and image viewing, so it might work.

Craig: Infanview says "Unknown file format" when trying to open a dp2 file.

So, no go on this idea as far as I can see.

DP is amazing. Every corner you turn there's something new!

I had never seen the Clone option that comes with the Oil Painting brushes.

Thanks for the links PM. We had been saying that DP-2D is a discontinued program, forgetting that really it is all still there inside DP-3D.

So now off hunting more DP-3D tut's.

PM: thanks. Since I last posted, I have done a lot more reading (both the help file (every word) and the PDF on the 3D model). Further experimentation has also helped. In spite of this, there is still a LOT of trial and error learning ahead. I hope to return to the Pelican picture and painting soon and see if I can get something more reasonable than my first try. I have also decided to concentrate my learning time on Deep Paint and set aside, at least for now, my copies of Painter Essentials, ArtRage, TwistedBrush, Dogwaffle, et al. I may have missed it, but I believe DP encompasses the capabilities of all of those others, and then some.

New to Deep Paint

After see the results that PhotoMaster got with this program I thought I'd give it a try - as a plug-in to PSP9 and not my Photoshop 7.

I believe there are three ways for PSP to find the plug-in
- placing the plug in directly into PSP's plug-in folder
- placing a shortcut (to a different DP location) into the PSP plug-in folder
folder
- as Craig said - using the PSP file >preferences > file locations > plugins - to specify the location of the DP plug-in

I decided on the plug-in and PSP because of the various concerns about getting into and out of Photoshop.

I put a 17.7 meg .psd image into Paint Shop Pro 9 and exported it into Deep Paint thru the plug-in transfer. - worked perfectly.

I then did some cloning and saved it into several formats from Deep Paint.
- saved as a project (native format for DP) resulting in 21 files - 22.3 meg)
- saved as a .psd file - 35.4 meg - no lighting effects
- saved as a .tif file - 9.2 meg
- saved as a .tga file - 9.2 meg
- saved as a .png file 6.1 meg

the only format that indicated no lighting effects would be saved was the .psd file.

Transferring back into PSP...
- the .psd file arrived with three layers - outline, clone and source
- the other files arrived with the outline and clone combined into one layer.

While my clone effort really wasn't worth saving - what I seemed to discover was that the .tif , .tga and .png files were large enough to return plenty of detail. Also that PSP 9 and the DP plug-in seem to work well together.

What I can't tell is if lighting effects were included.

Hope this info helps someone

Bob Mc

Re: Deep Paint 2.0: Make your Photoshop Image look
