Author Topic: Painter just hangs when trying to edit layers  (Read 806 times)


I'm a game dev, character modeler and I'm working with 500mb Painter files. The files load up just fine, but hang when I try to edit anything in a layer or layer group. Even just turning them on or off causes the progress bar to look paused. The file layers are organized extremely well.

Plz halp! Thx :)

Also could I get an answer to a hardware question. Of all of Nvidia's new graphics cards, which would be the best for Substance Painter and gaming?

Have you updated the Nvidia drivers?

Yes :)
