    Question No Pencil tool tilt support with Intuos 5 in Artrage 4? O_o'

    Hi!

    I just updated to the version 4.0 but after playing around with it, it seems that the only tool supporting Wacom Intuos 5 stylus tilt is the airbrush.

    Is it normal or do I have a configuration problem?

    note: I run Artrage on OSX 10.8 and still have Artrage Studio Pro 3.5 installed

    I search more and found that the stylus property of the pencil tool doesn't have the tilt option as with the airbrush tool.
    I am quite disappointed to still have to set the tilt of the pencil tool manually. I really hope that it is a problem with my configuration because the claim of a better Wacom Tablet support was the main reason I upgraded.

    Have to say I was disappointed by this omission too. But early days yet for AR4, so maybe one day...

    There are some technical gotchas with changing the shape of the pencil head during rendered stroke production - We do want to include dynamic tilt however and we will be looking in to it as we update.

    Ah, that's quite disappointing.

    How about rotation?

    I recently bought AR4 and an intros 5. Please include both tilt and rotation in the update for all drawing tools of relevance.

    I too would like to see Tilt and Rotate supported by more tools, for what its worth.

    Pencil is very clear, as others have noted. But I would love to see these features on the Watercolor tool just as much. A lot of us use Flat Headed brushes for watercolors, where it would be great to see Rotation in action. Simultaneously, being able to tilt the head of the Watercolor brush and either a) drag it across the grain or b) get a mark that has a thin tip as well as a fat base or c) accentuate the action of the bristles by tilting would be a wonderful and very fluid way of working with the tool that would seem much more natural.

    I'm sure you guys are working on all sorts of things, but this is something that I'd appreciate. Might as well ask for what makes sense to me.

    These features/expressions are indeed used by a majority of artists in every day real painting. I actually expected it to work with a graphical tablet such as Wacom Intuos 5. Please Artrage developers let me know your status on this topic and why it is so hard to find a solution. Many users desire these features which would help them out in their creative moments!

    Status regarding pencil tilt is noted above. We do want to look in to expanding support for various stylus parameters where appropriate to the tool, but there's no status on that as a general item at this point.
