Someone recently asked me for some advice on programming the paint synthesizer to emulate paint pouring out of a hose, where the user could control the direction of the flow. And i’m assuming there’s some form of gravitational force associated with the paint movement as well. We’ll take a look at one approach to doing this in todays’s post. And in the process learn about some of the different Wacom pen tilt and tilt orientation modulation techniques you can take advantage of in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer.
I actually started this project with a fairly old paint preset that emulates a traditional air brush paint tool. It’s designed to work with a Wacom pen and tablet that supports tilt and tilt orientation modulation with a pen, so something like an Intuos tablet. All Wacom tablets support pen pressure modulation.
The original old paint preset is called Particle Spray1. It’s included in the oldWorkFavorites Favorites category. You can download it here Particle Spray1
