How To Easily Make Your Cintiq/Tablet Better
I tried searching for this link to see if it had already been posted, but the search engine here just returns pretty much every thread in the subsection.
So here it is anyway:
What this guide aids you to do is ditch the dumbdumb pressure settings of the Wacom drivers and make your own manually along a three-point curve.
So for example, though before you could select "Soft" settings, it didn't change the fact that you still had to press super hard to get to that 1024st level of sensitivity.
But by following the guide, you can change these to anything you want, and set the middle point wherever you please. I opted to keep a linear pressure setting, and to reduce the nullified pressure from 40 to 10 so that, just as with real media, if I touch the stylus to the Cintiq super lightly then I get a correspondingly super light line. I don't know for certain whether the "click threshold" setting of Wacom's driver lets me reduce as much as I did; it doesn't seem as if it did.
So now my pressure curve is as follows:
10, 409, 818
which means I only have to use about 80 percent of the same force upon the stylus I was using before to reach full pressure.
Now it's so much easier to play with the whole range. It's really made using the Cintiq feel a lot more natural, and it makes calibration within programs easier too.
Righto, have fun, keep well hydrated, try baking your own pizza it's so much cheaper than buying, exfoliate at least once a week, take it easy, bye.

Worked for me, too. It's pretty silly how editing a simple line changes world of drawing Intuos4 users should be a happier a lot
It's now much more convenient, it's easy to make high pressure strokes, while you still can easily and precisely use low pressure strokes.
But.. anyone has idea why Wacom would remove the feature of adjusting pressure curve?

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
I noticed that when I changed that when I alter the click threshold in the driver, it changes some numbers in the property above the pressure setting in the configuration file. Wonder how these work.
EDIT: Ok, those properties I mentioned are the 'UpperPressureThreshold 41' and 'LowerPressureThreshold 33' (those values are the default).
I adjusted the click threshold down to the 2nd notch from the lowest and the values were changed in the configuration to 20 and 12 respectively.
This did not affect the pressure curve. Now my pen is really sensitive.

Thank you so much for this post. I also noticed this in addition when browsing Wacom's forums: http://forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=850
There are friction sheets for the intuos3 according to Wacom. So with the tweaking of the drivers and friction sheets you can do some nice updates to the intuos3 line.

Brashen, not necessarily, you can set in reversed way - harder presses for low pressure brush strokes.
HunterKiller, are there graphic programs that allows to adjust pressure?

hands down the most mindblowing thing on this entire website..
