Cintiq 24HD - Having Problems With Pressure Sensetivity.
Hey Guys and Girls,
I've had my Wacom Cintiq 24HD for a few months now and i haven't had any problems with it whatsoever, except every now and then when im sketching or drawing fairly fast my pen ends up not registering a light stroke, and doing a full sized one as if it was just a regular click of a mouse. i understand its just a matter of pressing undo, but it gets frustrating when ive done a few extra strokes on top of it and have to go all the way back to get rid of it. it also has a habit of killing my mood, or snapping me out of my zone if you will. i was just wondering whether any other 24hd owners are experiencing the same problem?
it i've noticed it happen in Adobe Flash, Photoshop and Illustrator CS5.5
Im also running Windows XP.
just to cancel this out, i have tried changing nibs but that hasn't helped.
I am running an Intel but I'm not getting any shoelaces. The problem with the pressure sensitivity seems to occur in Photoshop CS5 & CS6 for me. I have my old version of CS2 on the same machine and I haven't encountered the problem there.
From what I remember this was a constant issue (where pressure sensitivity was lost) since CS3. I wonder if instead of loosing it entirely it's now an erratic/loss of pressure stroke. The only other thing I can think may cause it is a graphics card issue.
Well I finally got something to work. I had tried previous Wacom drivers before but apparently I didn't go far enough back. I tried the oldest driver they have, 6.1.2-5, and that seems to have worked. I plan on doing some more testing but for now this will work.
Ugh, I have this same problem, since I got a new computer a few months back (Win 7, 64 bit). Since I heard older drivers worked better, I did that (after cleaning up anything I could find related to Wacom in my computer first), and it just seems to occur less frequently (but still does) as Peterhurman states.
Never had any problems on my 32-bit Vista, which was also running CS5, though my drivers were not up-to-date either (I think I was using the March 2010 driver).
If anyone knows of other solutions, I'd love to know.
@ Arshes Nei,
I experienced some shoelacing a while ago, (probably the area between when I created the post and now.) but it seems to have stopped now.
what i'm still experiencing is what I explained up the top. you know how with the pressure sensors its possible to have a big brush size but when you draw lightly it doesnt fill the whole circle?
the problem im getting is i like to lay down a buttload of strokes at the beginning of my drawing. maybe to get used to the calibration or create something to make do until i even figure out what i'd like it to be? sort of like a sketching syle.
The problem I get is maybe 1 out of every 15 strokes is registered as a full stroke, so the pen acts as if im pushing the pen down to full pressure (thus filling the whole circle) leaving a gargantuous line where it should be a thin stroke.
The annoying thing about this is that by the time i've realised this has happened i've done maybe another 4-6 strokes so i need to go back and undo everything. Every now and then one of those 4-6 strokes will be exactly where i want it but i lose it due to the damn pressure sensor :/
I guess its first world problems but after paying thousands of dollars for a flash 24hd id at least expect them to get their patented technologly right?
