    Airbrush Tilt no longer detected.

    Hi Guys,
    Anyone else had a problem with the Airbrush Tilt operation?

    After working for about 1/2 an hour the Airbrush dropped back to full circle and wouldn't respond to tilting the pen.

    Starting over with a fresh imported picture made it start up again.

    In retrospect I should have Exported then Imported, but at the time I thought it was the Wacom that had failed.

    I've had this happen for years with various models of Wacom tablets. It still works for location sensing but looses tilt and pressure. I've never been able to identify a cause. I usually just minimize my painting and open the wacom control panel. Usually upon testing the pressure there it will recognize its purpose once again and I can proceed with painting. Some times I have to completely reboot but not often.
    Be well,

    Yeah, thats been a quirk of Wacom tablets and drivers for ever. Even venerable Photoshop has the same problem, on occasion.
    And the reason Fashmir's suggestion of opening the Wacom control panel probably works is that when you switch between two applications that recognize pressure, the driver is re-initialized.

    You could check you have the latest drivers downloaded from Wacom as well.

    Many thanks Fashmir,

    Your vast experience saves me a lot of unnecessary investigation.
    Pressure sensing had gone as well, the circle size was unchanging.

    I have my birthday present, a large format printer.
    HP had a great offer on.
    Now I know why all you professionals keep fretting about getting things "print ready". If you don't get it right it's like a pit that you throw all your money into!

    ArtRage stuff, even when it's blown up to Super B+ looks absolutely stunning. (So do all the painting errors! ops: )
