Affinity not importing brushes with specific pressure settings

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

All the brush sets I import don't come with the pressure settings on them. Is this normal?

Pressure sensitivity IS working, brushes aren't being completely imported correctly.

Which brush sets? I assume you have tried using the "pressure" controller tuned to on. Have you also looked at the brush dynamics to see if the size & opacity setting are above zero?

I imported custom sets I made, but they include some pretty basic brushes with opacity (called "Accumulation" in Affinity, I believe?) controlled via pen-pressure

The opacity (I assume you mean Accumulation) settings are at 0% for brushes that SHOULD be 50% or whatever for the imported brushes. So, for me to make them all usable as intended I'd have to go into each brush and change the Accumulation setting, and make it adjusted through Pen Pressure.

In Affinity, opacity is for vector brushes. Accumulation produces something similar for pixel brushes, but not the same. My recollection from various posts is that brushes made outside Affinity need to have the brush settings checked to make sure the pressure parameters are enabled.
