  • Painter - Cloners

    I've noticed that there are a few people on the board that are playing with Painter. I have Painter 7.0 and I have been checking out the cloner tools. So far the pencil cloner doesn't seem to work. I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem, or if you have to do anything different to get the pencil cloner to work?

    Just tried it and it works ok for me. What exactly doesn't work ?

      I open my image, clone it, delete the clone image and activate the tracing paper. Okay so far so good. I select my cloners, but nothing happens when I use the pencil cloner. I draw and nothing happens on the image. I tried adjusting the levels such as opacity and brush size, but still nothing. All the other cloners appear to work fine.

        Hi T,

        I had what I think is the same problem when I was trying to figure out how to use the cloners. things to check:
        • Make sure the image you're trying to clone from is actually open (and yes I have actually forgotten to leave the clone source open then wondered what happened )
        • check that in the color pallete the checkmark is selected for "clone color" otherwise it won't work

        I am using painter classic, but for something like that I'd assume it's the same.

          T,

          I just did exactly what you did and here are my settings:
          - in Art Materials, Colors, Clone Color checked
          - in Brush Controls, General, Method : cloning
          - in Brush Controls, Cloning : Clone Color checked and Clone Type normal.

          But first, I think you should (if you didn't) Restore default variant and work from there.

          Hope this helps.

            I had everything set up they way you said, but still no luck. However, I noticed that under the CLONING menu that the "obey source selection" was selected. When I unselected it then the pencil cloner worked. It also worked when I selected "copy source selection".

            THANKS

              Glad you found the problem 'source'. There's enough to learn without having to search for a frustrating wrong setting 'somewhere'.

              I'll go try me new Intuos 4x5 that I received today.

                That should be a lot of fun. I was really impressed with how much more control a tablet gives you. I thought I was always pretty good with my mouse, but boy does a table pen make life a lot easier!

                  After just a few minutes, I'd say I'm gonna love it. Impatient to try it more on the week-end.

                    Hi guys,

                    Just started using the Intuos 2 myself recently. This might be old news to you, but here's a little tip I picked up recently: Put a regular piece of paper over the plastic cover on the tablet. Makes it less "slick" and gives more of a feeling of actual drawing implement.

                      Larry, I tried that and then took it off as it loses some of the pressure sensitivity response I think.

                        That's good to know, Jaz. I'm not proficient enough at it yet to know that. Do you think it takes enough sensitivity away to make a difference in a drawing?

                          I do, yes. I noticed that I had a harder time controlling the thickness of lines in Painter with the paper on but it may have been my imagination too! LOL

                            Everytime you use Painter you should first go to the preferences and set the tablet sensitivity.

                              I do! :-)
