    Why is this?

    Hi all,

    After many tests I realized that all of the AR background colors do this always when you are making a new image. I don't know why we can't get a solid color. Anyone got a Clue? Please See the image...........

    Hello Bobbyray,

    The reason the canvas has a gradation is due to the 3D light rendering ArtRage uses. The lighting is essential for creating the various textures one finds in the different tools and grains. The lighting can be turned off by hitting the "F5" key, but in doing so one will loose many of the unique textures the tools create.

    Here is are some examples of how the having the light on and off will effect some of the tools.

    Here you see the Oil Brush, Paint Tube, Chalk and Glitter with the light rendering on.

    Also, the lighting effect is more obvious with metallics, so if you are creating a coloured canvas, set the canvas metallicity to 0% ( right click background layer, set the metal slider to 0% or when creating a new painting set the metal slider to 0% )
