Brush behavior change

Recommended Posts

I just updated to the new version and the brush behavior seems drastically different. I mainly use the round brush for painting and I liked that it's behavior is similar to that of Photoshop. I'm attaching photos of how this looks before and after the update. Before the update there was a smooth/flat transition when painting with the round brush. After the update you can see that the brush seems to stamp individual circles. I tried adjusting this with the spacing parameter, but it just made the stamping more dense (as in the bottom two strokes in the after image).

I reverted to the old version to make the before image and thought I could just stay with the old version, but it won't let me open my old files. I can't open the old files even if they were never opened or saved with the newer version.

Is there a new setting I should be using to go back to the previous behavior? Thanks for any help!

Just a guess, but do you have the Pressure Controller enabled in the Context Toolbar?
