Corel Painter X3 overview

  • 1Description

Painter X3 from Corel is compatible with both Mac and PC configurations. It comes with a variety of new features and enhancements to components found in previous versions of Corel Painter. Corel Painter X3 comes equipped with the tools needed to take your artwork to the next level with hundreds of brushes, paper textures, and paints. You can now search for the desired brush with the new Brush Search Engine tool and view a preview of what each brush stroke will look like.

Once you find the right brush, you can take advantage of new advanced brush controls to ensure you get the perfect brush effect. Jitter Brush effects are also available for added customization to your work. Other new features found within Corel Painter X3 include perspective guidelines, the ability to reference real-world images in Painter X3, as well as the ability to collaborate and meet with other artists online.

Along with the list of new tools found in Painter X3, Corel has made numerous enhancements to other features to greatly improve your work. You can now clone your workflow to compare and contrast a project image and source image. Along with cloning your workflow, you can view your work in multiple layers, eliminating the need to view each layer individually. While editing your work in multiple layers, you also have the ability to choose for an expanded color palette as well as share, manage, and switch between a large number of brushes.

Brush Search Engine
Find and select the perfect brush quickly and easily. Just type the name or properties of any brush and Painter X3 will find it for you. The visual preview lets you ensure each brush is exactly what you're looking for.
Stroke Preview
See exactly what each brush stroke will look like on your canvas. Preview brush parameters such as Mixing, Erasing, Blending and Jitter. The preview adjusts in real-time as you experiment with brushes and paper textures. No more test canvases required.
Advanced Brush Controls
Edit and optimize brushes with a few simple clicks. The new brush optimizer highlights the primary parameters of each brush. Plus, make more advanced edits and preview changes on the fly.
Jitter Brushes
Use pre-built Jitter brushes to simulate random elements and "happy accidents" that can occur when using real-world media. For added effect, customize the pre-built Jitter brushes further to create more organic, natural-looking art.
Jitter Expression
Add Jitter to all your Painter X3 brushes and adjust for brush expressions such as Opacity, Grain, Size, Angle and more.
Perspective Guides
Accurately draw in a one-, two-, or three-point perspective. Simply select your vanishing points and set your lines - your brush strokes will automatically snap to the grid. You can also save presets, change line colors, and add additional guidelines.
Reference Image
Work with reference images directly within the Painter X3 interface. Just drop your reference image anywhere on-screen without disrupting your workflow. Plus, instantly sample reference colors.
Meet the Artist Paint Jam Sessions
Join online for live talks with professional artists who offer insight into the challenges and triumphs they've experienced over the course of their careers.
Cloning Workflow
Work faster when cloning an image. You can view a project image and the cloning crosshairs on a source image at the same time. Plus, lightly edit source images and automatically save clone source data to your file.
Transform Across Multiple Layers
Quickly select and transform multiple layers at one time to focus on your art and avoid the annoyance of having to cycle through numerous layers in a project.
Color Set Libraries and Mixers
Choose the maximum number of colors to add to a new set from an Image, Layer, Selection, or Mixer Pad. Plus, use inspirational mixers for an enhanced way to work with colors.
Memory Optimization
Macs with 64-bit systems will automatically use all available memory when running Painter X3. Plus, PCs with large amounts of RAM can utilize new software speed enhancements.
Brush Sharing and Management
Share Painter X3 brushes by email, post them online or share via USB device. The receiver simply double clicks on the file to launch Painter X3 and automatically import a brush, category or brush library.
RealBristle Media
RealBristle technology replicates traditional art materials more realistically than comparable software. Work with oils, watercolors, chalks, markers, pencils, and more. Control color intensity and shading by adjusting the angle and pressure of the pen on your tablet.
Flow Maps
Take control of how paint interacts with your canvas. Flow Maps offer a creative way to direct the flow of paint from Real Watercolor and Real Wet Oil brushes. For added effect, customize your own Flow Map textures and brushes.
Smart Photo-Painting Tools
Transform photos into paintings by hand or let the Auto-Painting palette paint a photo for you. Painter X3 features sophisticated SmartStroke brush technology that follows the lines and contours in a picture.
Customizable Surface Texturing
Enhance the texture and detail by choosing paper textures for your canvas or creating and customizing your own textures to produce truly unique artwork.
Agile Brush Control
Use shortcuts to instantly access brush settings. Change brush settings such as Size, Opacity, Squeeze, and Angle. Using interactive controls, you can make rapid adjustments from one centralized location, plus scalable resizing lets you preserve correct brush proportions.
Brush Tracking
Save time and effort by customizing Painter X3 to remember your touch. Brush tracking lets you instantly program Painter X3 to save your preferred speed and pressure sensitivity for each individual brush.
Move and Copy Brush Variants within a Library
Work faster with the ability to move or copy a brush variant to any category simply by dragging the variant within the brush selector. Updated brush variants and category creation also offers more design flexibility and fewer steps when saving variants.
Temporal Color Palette
Change brush colors quickly and easily. Instantly bring up the Temporal Color Palette and select colors you want without disrupting your workflow. The palette only sticks around for as long as you need it, keeping your workspace clutter free.
Custom Palettes
Tailor Painter X3 to the way you want to work. Create custom palettes for special projects as well as the workflows you use most. Once you create a custom palette it's saved from session to session for quick and easy use.
Workspace Creation and Management
Streamline your workflow with the ability to create, import, and delete workspaces. This versatile option lets you choose the Painter X3 tools and features you use most and then creates, saves, and shares your custom workspaces.
Adobe Photoshop Compatibility
Use built-in Adobe compatibility to easily preserve colors and layers when transferring files between Photoshop and Painter X3. Plus, take advantage of third-party Photoshop plug-ins to unlock even more creative possibilities on your Mac and PC.
Wacom Multi-Touch Pen Tablet Compatibility
Get full support for the entire Wacom product line, including Cintiq interactive pen displays and Intuos pen tablets. Wacom multi-touch support also allows you to navigate through the Painter X3 interface using simple finger taps on your Wacom tablet.
Corel Cinco for Painter
Work faster in Painter X3. Cinco is an app that lets you map commonly used buttons onto your Wi-Fi enabled iPad. Paint with one hand, cycle through customizable buttons and palettes with the other - all without taking your eyes off your work.
Motion Gesture Support
Powered by Leap Motion Technology, Painter Freestyle is a motion gesture system that lets you use movements and gestures to access commands and paint using nothing but your hands.
Extensive File Support
Enjoy full compatibility for a variety of industry-standard file formats, including PNG, PSD, TIFF (CMYK & RGB), BMP, TGA, GIF, JPEG, MOV, AVI and FRM. You can also save files in an EPS format.
Multi-Platform Support
