switching from version 1 to version 2
« on: July 14, 2017, 12:09:06 AM »
So I'm testing Sai version 1 and wanted to buy it . i downloaded a bunch of brush textures and all that as well . but then i found out there was a version 2 coming out / already released . i've looked around and no one seemed to have quite answered what i wanted to know on other threads .

so first off , if i buy the lisence for the first version , do i get version 2 as well ? or do i have to buy them separate ?

second , can i get my old brush settings and all those donwnloaded viles and textures over to version 2 ? i'd even be okey with having to manually type it all in again , but i just want to know if its even possible to use all the old textures from version1 on 2 as well , cause if nto i think i dont want to buy it cause to me the brushes are the eky point  :'(

and if it /is/ possible to get them over there , is there a specific way how to do so ?


i hope someone can help me on this cause really , its mainly about the brushes . i guess the old brushes and how they work are still the same but i want to keep my custom brushes , i use them a lot and it would not be not be worth it for me to buy version 2 if i coudltn use them anymore

anyway , sorry for the way too long text , i hope someone can help and / or explain this to me !

Right now, you only have to pay once to get both! (I recommend using SAI2--- it's just THAT more awesome/looks better in large screens.)

Files and textures, yes. It's easy to transfer them to SAI2. Just copy paste the image files in the respective folders and start SAI2. They will be automatically detected, you don't need to manually edit txt files or anything.

Brushes are slightly trickier. I'm not someone who tweak with brushes a lot, and some of my downloaded version of SAI provides a good range of brushes that I can't bear to move to SAI2. However, SAI looks weird in my new laptop, the icons are too small, and the brushes don't work the same way. I switched to Clip Studio (I even bought it xD) and Medibang Paint for a while, but they're just not the same........ So I went back to SAI2 and bear with the lower quality of my pictures because the brush I'm most comfortable with, doesn't give me sharp lines I used to have.

^ Until last week, that is. Check out the setting for some pencil and brushes tools in:

I think there'll be more brush options in tumblr, but... We'll see. :D

You're going to need more brush tweaks, but I swear to you it'll be worth it.
SAI---and now, SAI2---is just the most intuitive illustration software I've ever used. <3
