Hi,

Since there seems to be no special forum at WW for Corel Painter, I'm posting this here. Does anyone here know how to make a mask in Corel Painter? For example, I draw a circle and a square, and I want the square to be visible only within the circle... I just can't find it anywhere on the Internet. All tutorials are about "Layer Mask" which is used for a completely different purpose...

Thanks

>>> want the square to be visible only within the circle.

If it's like Photoshop, select the circle, invert the selection (which will then include the unwanted part of the square), delete.

Or: Make a mask of the circle (white, that reveals).
Apply that mask to your square layer. The square shows only within the circle Mask.

Layer masks are exactly for what you want.
