DaPainter (DAP): help - runs for hours

Hi folks,

Just installed this, but the default settings seem to take forever. I ran a trial overnight, and after 13+ hours it's up to 4,000,000+ strokes and still appears to be a long way off complete.

Does anyone please have any newbie tips for optimum settings?

Re: DaPainter.

I know of no default preset that takes that many strokes. Many take less then 2000. There is a setting that allows for continueous strokes and it sounds like you have that option clicked. You can always stop at any time and save your result. Should you have any issues or need help with DAP, the folks at the MMB DAP forum will more then be glad to help you.

Welcome to RP, Wingz:

See attached screenshot. Be sure the "Continuous" setting is "off" (unchecked).

If "on" (checked), DAP will run indefinitely until manually stopped.

Does this help?
