Hi Pixarra People!

It installed ok on Win 7 64b and registered OK. But, on first use with nothing special done, it crashed with a debug error. What can I do?

Apparently some of the links in this older version of Paint Studio are obsolete. Clicking on Help > "Pixarra User Forum (Online)..." resulted in (http://support.pixarra.com/discussions):

"Freshdesk
We couldn't find support.pixarra.com
May be this is still fresh!
You can claim it now at http://www.freshdesk.com/signup"

Clicking on the "signup" link results in an account signup (https://freshdesk.com/signup):

"Try Freshdesk free for 21 days"

On the other hand, by simply visiting Pixarra's own website I could navigate to the user forum at https://www.pixarra.com/forum.html

Similarly, clicking on Help > "Pixarra Gallery (Online)..." resulted in (https://www.pixarra.com/recent_gallery.html):

"404 Error - Page Not Found"

Also, is there any separate/traditional settings/preferences menu (I don't see one), or is it only the brushes, palettes, etc., currently in use that gets reset? I ask because there is a "Reset all..." (under File) which states "...program preferences will be reset".

Otherwise, I've seen these Pixarra TwistedBrush titles used as very capable tools in the hands of an artist (which, unfortunately, I'm not), especially when using a pressure-sensitive stylus (like a Wacom drawing tablet/pen).

What is the difference between this and TwistedBrush Pro Studio. I have Ver 23.06 of that from a previous GOTD. Which of these is better.

rww,

Feature comparison table: https://www.pixarra.com/features.html

Also, from their FAQ: http://help.pixarra.com/m/faq/l/40506-what-are-the-different-editions-of-twistedbrush-that-are-available

"Currently there are 2 editions available, TwistedBrush Pro Studio and TwistedBrush Open Studio. TwistedBrush Pro Studio is everything, all features and all brushes (over 9000 at this point). TwistedBrush Open Studio is a free version of TwistedBrush with many of the features of Pro Studio and just a handful of very fine brushes with the ability to purchase additional brush collections.

There is also a series of Studio products released by Pixarra which are born from TwistedBrush Pro Studio. They use the same great TwistedBrush brush engine, but with a simpler, streamlined interface. These focused studio products extract a key functional area of TwistedBrush Pro Studio, extend it, and make it easy to use. These are: Paint Studio, Tree Studio, Blob Studio, Liquid Studio, Luminance Studio, Pixel Studio and Selfie Studio."

rww,

"Pro" is better and per their "Features" table contains everything of the other titles combined (see my other comment). You may want to simply keep your v23.06 if the license is still active. The current version of "Pro" is 24.06.

TwistedBrush Pro Studio Revision History: http://help.pixarra.com/m/RevisionHistory

Otherwise, it's likely you can install "Paint" alongside "Pro" -- on my system their other non-Pro titles previously offered here on GOTD have installed in separate folders (C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixarra\TB Paint Studio, C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixarra\TB Blob Studio, etc.); however, I don't have "Pro" installed to be certain.

HMarx, Looks like the Pro version is the better choice then.

rww, Keep what you have, rww. Pro contains this edition and more.
