    Roller paint brush settings question

    Does anyone else feel that the pressure setting on this brush is backwards? 100% reveals the most texture whereas 0% fills the texture to reveal less texture as though I were pressing harder on the brush. Also the thinner seems to be backwards. version 4.5.2

    Yes, I know what you mean. We get used to the idea; more pressure = more paint on canvas. But see this explanation from DaveRage: http://forums.artrage.com/showthread...786#post384786

    Thanks for the reply. I still don't buy that explanation however. Unless there is some sort of paint roller brush I don't know of.

    I've used ink rollers on cold press and the harder you press the more the ink fills in the textured paper creating a solid paint surface. I've used padded paint rollers and the harder you press more the ink fills in the textured paper creating a solid paint surface. The less pressure used with either of these methods the more the texture is revealed as ink or pigment is not forced down into the hills and valleys.

    I take it that ArtRage roller has always been this way. I'll have to get used to it too.

    We modelled this behaviour on a hard roller with oil paint. The more pressure = thinner pigment model is basically exactly what happened when we worked with the real tools on paper. For a thinner medium such as ink or with a softer roller surface this would be different but, surprised though we were, we found that the model we're using here is the one we found with the actual tool.
