Real-time Effects Preview

Real-time Effects Preview

By Discovery Center Team

Corel Painter includes a collection of effects that let you control image lighting, surface texture and much more. Previous versions of Corel Painter allowed you to see the result of applying an effect in the small preview window. And although it was possible to pan through the preview window, it wasn’t possible to see the effect applied to the whole image in its entirety. In Corel Painter 2015 we now have a full canvas preview for many of the effects that allows you to adjust the various settings and slider-bars, while at the same time seeing those effects applied to the actual image in real-time, giving you much greater control over the creative process.
