Fundamentals
Corel Painter's heritage is deeply rooted in the foundations of art theory and technique. Over the years, Painter developers have worked closely with artists from around the world to create the next-generation art studio. Providing an experience that is unmatched by any other software, Corel Painter has grown to become the world's most powerful painting & illustration application.

Artists, designers and photographers continue to enjoy many features that have been the cornerstones of this ground-breaking application for years. The following features let creative professionals leverage their natural talents and techniques to create original works of art, distinguishing Corel Painter from other applications.

Brushes
Brushes have always been the heart and soul of Corel Painter. There are more than 30 brush categories, ranging from Crayons, Chalk, and Charcoal to Acrylics, Watercolor, Liquid Ink, Artists' Oils, and the new RealBristle. While most brush categories mirror the look and feel of traditional brushes, others offer users a one-of-a-kind creative tool.

Brushes are organized into distinct categories, each featuring a multitude of variants. The following brush categories are just a sample of those available to Corel Painter X customers.

Brush Controls
Brush Control palettes provide quick, easy access to all brush settings and controls. Making on-the-fly changes to brush settings and variables is as simple as dragging a slider—without any disruption to workflow. For example, the Boost slider, found in the General palette of the Brush Controls, instantly enhances brush speed. Just drag the slider and see brush performance accelerate.

Textures
In the traditional art world, an artist's brush or drawing tool produces different results when applied to surfaces with different textures. Corel Painter allows users to control the texture of the canvas to achieve the results they would expect from conventional art media on a given surface. Brushes interact with paper grain, just as natural tools react with the texture of the surfaces beneath them. Textures can also be used to create special effects, such as rusted metal on an intergalactic spaceship or bark on a tree.

Animation
Corel Painter has an impressive array of animation features. The Onion Skinning feature enables users to view previous and future frames while working on the current frame. The Rotoscoping feature enables users to paint and modify a single frame of an existing movie. Animated movies can be saved as animated GIFs, QuickTime movies, or AVI movies.

Support for Industry-Standard File Formats
Corel Painter lets users open and save a variety of file formats, including Adobe Photoshop (PSD), Corel Paint Shop Pro (PSP), TIFF (CMYK & RGB), Windows Bitmap (BMP), PC Paintbrush (PCX), TARGA (TGA), GIF, JPEG, Mac PICT, QuickTime (MOV), and Video for Windows (AVI) files. Users can also save files in encapsulated PostScript (EPS) format.
