Not sure how to word a concise title, so sorry for the vagueness on the issue there.
Last night I purchased and imported a new brush set. I was really enjoying the feel of them, juicy and overall just a positive painting experience. Part way through testing, I switched out to use the general brushes, specifically, hard round pressure size. I found that it had an unknown bubbly jitter and texture to it. When checking brush settings, it had nothing activated which should have cuased this leaving me clueless. Thought it was strange, it wasnt a brush from my new pack and I'd never had this issue before. I changed to any other brush and they all had this additional setting applied to them, regardless if it was a default PS brush or an imported one. I reset the tools, tried out all the "8 common fixes to your brush problems!" to no avail.
This morning after having restarted my pc, that issue is gone but the imported brushes now no longer work. Despite re-importing them and messing with the settings of them in PS, they arent the same brushes anymore. They're the shape of the brush, but all settings wont stay to how they were originally, now just printing the same brush shape repeatedly over and over rather than having any rotational variation or any other setting. I'd have to attempt replicating all the settings which I wouldnt veen begin to know where to start. Tried resetting all tools again, restoring to defaults, I cant seem to get PS to return to how it was and I'm entirely lost on the whole situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
