    Choppy brush... anyone know how to fix this?

    I just watched Zhang Lu's digital painting video (which was freaking awesome, btw) and was trying to configure my brush to have a similar look. It seems, however, than no matter what opacity/flow settings I use, I can't get around the choppiness.

    I did a quick search in this forum to no avail, but I'm sure I'm not the first one with this problem. Anyone know if there are some performance settings or anything else I can adjust to make it smoother? I use CS4 with an Intuos3 tablet.

    Thanks in advance!

    In the Brushes window, under Brush Tip Shape, lower or uncheck Spacing (can be found at the bottom). I hope this helps.

    Oh wow, that was easy, thanks a lot! I didn't even know about that window - took me a bit to find it.

    Yes it's that simple :> But keep in mind that if you lower the bruhs spacing alot and work on huge files with huge brushes it may slow down (lagg the brush) i think keeping t at 10% is pretty ok.
    Plus try to don't use the brush you showed us alot, rather use the Hard Round brush with unchecked shape dynamics and other dynamics set to pen pressure.

    Yeah, once I discovered all those options and played around with them, I can definitely see how it would start lagging a lot. 1% spacing is just so smooth though!

    Thanks a lot for the advice! This has been one of my biggest hurdles in digital painting - finding the right brush to work with. Can't wait to finally focus on my art and stop banging my head against the table choosing various brushes.
