InlifeThrill saidjust checking, did you enabled Graphic Tablet mode in C4D?
Spent some time in Cinema 4D – it’s all fine and dandy.
First thing I did.I don’t feel particularly comfortable with the default “right click” mapped on pen’s buttons. Should probably remap it to something else. What do you guys use for a right click?
I keep the right click turned off and use the Mac Ctrl-click for a right click. I used to have it one, then started getting joint pain in my index finger from the right click on the pen a couple of years ago (particularly in Cinema, where I was using it to zoom and rotate the camera), so I turned it off. Doesn’t seem to slow me down too badly.
You know you can map the buttons differently per program, right?
Yes, I know about the per/app functionality. Thanks for the help everybody.
Very interesting thread! I was also deciding whether or not to make the switch from mouse to tablet due to hand pain at the end of the day. Will probably switch in a few days after doing some research on the different types.
Interesting thread… have you guys seen this yet? What do you think? Unfortunately maxes out at 8gb of ram but it should be able run After Effects on the go… I wonder what battery life will be like. http://cintiqcompanion.wacom.com/CintiqCompanion/en/
I think surface have wacom technology for the screenhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3gG8TlUVyU
also an interesting review from Penny Arcadehttp://www.penny-arcade.com/2013/02/22/the-ms-surface-pro
Oh very cool @doru, thanks for the share. I didn’t know Surface was Wacom enabled… I’ve been using the Asus EP121 as an ultra-mobile solution and low-performance testing platform for a few years but it maxes out at 4gb of ram and has a pitiful battery life, which makes AE annoying to work in. Still a pretty awesome device in its own right though. What’s cool about the tablet pc option is that you can create on screen ui buttons to simulate cintiq functionality with autohotkey scripts. Not ideal but still interesting…
Just read on Ars Technica that the new Surface pro will have 8gb of ram so I’ll be taking a closer look at that in October.
Now i’m thinking maybe i should try this
great post by the way
