Capture One Pro can detect the pressure applied when using any type of interactive stylus for a graphics tablet. A stylus is typically pressure-sensitive and when the Use Pen Pressure option in the Brush tool is enabled, the harder you press down on the nib, the wider the brush stroke and the mask as well. The mask gradually expands from the center of the brush tool outwards to the outer limit of the cursor ring, defined by the hardness slider. This feature includes both the nib and eraser.
When a stylus pen features a built-in eraser at the opposite end to the nib, the selection is typically pre-programmed and there is no need to select the Erase (E) option. If that is not the case, you can usually customize the stylus software and assign that and any side-buttons to Capture One’s shortcuts.
- Select the Brush by clicking on the Draw Mask icon in the Layers tool or from the Cursor toolbar.
- Right-click anywhere in the Viewer or click on the Brush Settings icon in the Layers tool.
- A Brush Settings window will appear.
- Now check-mark the Use Pen Pressure option box.
