You gonna use it for pixel art only or no? No point in getting a pressure sensitive tablet if it'll only be used for pixel art.

no, I want to start doing some digital paintings. I also do a lot of photo editing and getting precision is hard with a mouse :(

anyone know the major difference between the graphire and intous, and if one is better than the other for painting? the only thing I read is that the intous has more pressure point settings or something :S

Taka, just record it using camtasia and then use a different audio software to record yourself, and put it as a soundtrack to the movie.
that was the plan, I've decided now that I'll use the built in recording function to get a screenshot of each frame, that way even if I do experience some slow down, there is none recorded, and I have full control over every pixel of every frame.

Originally I thought I would have to export all those frames as a giant gif, lose a bit of colour detail, then convert to a movie file, but I've discovered I can import the frames in windows movie maker, and save it as a movie file - Cutting out the middle man :)

The only annoying thing is the quickest speed it allows for each frame is 0.1 seconds, but once I convert it to a movie I can easily speed it up :)

I sure hope so, Zolthy, I sure hope so.

And it's weird, because a Pokčmon Trainer is another character I'd been hoping they'd add. I never thought they would though...much less like this. I have the feeling I'll suck as him. Suck terribly. Still, the option is always nice.


Rydin: well I could've told you that. ::)

Wow, I would never expect them to make a character that worked so far off their traditional game system.

When they added snake I was a little upset because I thought something as drastic as what they did with Pokemon Trainer would be the only way for him to really feel like himself. Here's hoping they put that kinda effort on Snake, that's who I really care about  :crazy:

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Yea, the Pokemon trainer seems pretty interesting, I just don't like how you have to change pokemon:

If you keep fighting with the same Pokémon, or if you change them out too often, it’s not so good for the Pokémon.
Not too pysched about this character, but at least they finally started announcing new characters again. Ike was quite a pleasant surprise.
