    Large Size roller not using loading values

    Has anybody seen this.

    The only thing I change is the brush size and loading seems to not work.

    Hi chrisV!

    I've had a few shots at this so far and I don't appear to be getting the same behavior so let's see if we can find out.

    Can you tell me what pointing device / tablet make and model you're using?
    What operating system is this on?

    Here are my basic steps:

    1/ Start up ArtRage, and on the default blank canvas, change to the paint roller.
    2/ Set it to 200%. Use a dark grey colour. Set: Loading 1% Thinners 50%, Pressure 5%. Metallics are turned off.
    3/ Make a stroke with the roller.

    I get a fairly subtle faint effect. If I then change the roller size. If I change the tool size to 100% and try again I get a similar effect.

    I used an Intuos 3 stylus and a mouse. Let me know if anything springs to mind from the details above which is different from the way you're doing things. For example, if there's any other media under the roller before you start, or if you're setting up your painting differently, and so on.

    Windows XP Service pack 2
    Intuos 3

    I did the same setup as you and when the roller gets over 150% it goes forever.

    I am assuming that a roller @ 200% should make a mark that is twice as large as the roller at 100% with the same settings.

    I did some test going from 100% brush size to 150% brush size incrementing by 10. 110,120,130 all looked good when I hit 140 no ink appeared at all. When I hit 150 the ink lasts a very long time. Look at the brush preview and see the difference on 150

    I might uninstall and reinstall and try again

    {EDIT}
    I uninstalled and reinstalled and got the same results.
    Does it matter what driver version I have for my ATI x1950 APG card

    Ahaa, thanks for that. I see why I didn't manage to reproduce it last time.

    Now that I'm using 5% loading and 5% pressure, I do see that behavior at these larger sizes.

    It is possible that some artifacts may be seen with tool sizes larger than 100% as this was an undocumented addition we made outside of the original system in order to allow people to break free of the standard size constraints. However, we're definitely glad to know about any problems like these so that we can solve them - I've added this to the bug list to be looked at in future. Thank you for the information, this is very useful!
