Author Topic: Follow path issue  (Read 925 times)

Hey internet,

I'm trying to add a simple strip detail Ive created in Designer and paint it onto a mesh in Painter,

So I've got my Designer material loaded in as a base material, I've created a paint layer, selected my material, changed to a square alpha, played around with the spacing settings, turned on follow path and set the alignment to tangent wrap.

Everything works as I want it to when I'm adding in a straight line using the click+shift method, Pic1.

Problem is when i have to try and curve the line it end up ugly and jittery, Pic 2.

Anyone know a method so my lines stay smooth and even on curved surfaces?


You can try enabling the Lazy Mouse setting to smooth your pen/mouse position when painting, this should improve the results of the Follow Path.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.
