Graphics Tablet Question

on: February 21, 2009, 08:00:03 pm
When using a Wacom tablet to do pixel art do you experience a slight pause every time you prepare to draw a stroke? This doesn`t happen with non pixel art programs but with Promotion and even Paint I am getting a very slight delay. I have found it best to keep the pen on the tablet as otherwise my stroke flow is ruined. Anyone else experience this or know of a solution? I`m guessing it is because the pressure part of the pen is not in use, am I wrong?

Thanks for any advice.

Jason.

I have the same thing and it's so annoying that I don't use tablet anymore in ProMotion. If someone knows a fix to this, I'd love to know too.

It sounds like a problem with the wacom. My old 4x6 wacom did that. My 12x7 Trust tablet doesn't have a problem with that. Wacom seems to... jiggle a little too.

I use an Wacom Intuos3 A5wide and have no problems at all.

Strange, I have tried two Wacoms now (both USB), one on XP and one on Vista, both use different drivers too and they do the same thing. Ptoing, what driver versions are you using if you do not mind me asking?

It doesn't happen with my intuos3, but did with the Volito. Fixed it by changing the double click distance to minimum/off.

Atm I have diver version 6.08-4

I never had this problem tho and I been using Wacoms for a few years now, so far only Intuos2 and 3 tho, so I dunno how the more budget ones fare.

Well I`m using an Intuos 2 atm so I`m not sure what the problem is. Pretty annoying though. I tried the double click thing to with no luck :(

Are you using Windows Vista? I had a problem with Vista whenever I touched my pad it would pause slightly, but after turning off a few of Vista's Pen/Tablet features all is well.

Yes, I am on Vista. How do you disable Vistas Pen\Tablet features? They seem to be well hidden.

I dunno if you guys who also have this problem found a solution yet, but quick googling gave me this and it worked for me at least: http://www.pixolator.com/zbc/showthread.php?t=45893

It just involves switching off the press and hold functions from the control panel.

Oh i'm so glad you brought this up QuickSilva, seems like turning down the double click thing works. Although i will have to properly pixel to be sure of that, but so far it seems fine. Has been annoying me for a while, although only seemed to be effected by the right click button on my pen.

If it helps some people then that`s the main thing :)

I`m going to give this a try when I get a chance, hopefully it will work for me too, fingers crossed...

(Edit - Yay it works! It feels so much better to pixel with my tablet now, before it was a nightmare!)
