Thread: laggy tablet
September 9th, 2002 #1Dr3w Guest
I have a wacom artpad2 (yeh i no its not great- but its better than a mouse )
anyway- ive noticed that wen im drawing- usually slowly , or outlining there is slight (but very annoying) lag between the tablet and pc- causing a curved line to have a random shape.
i was wondering if this could be down to either:
1) bad drivers
2) the fact the tablet connects through a com port (slower than usb
3) just a crap tablet

i will be formatting my pc soon and hopefully i should nitice an improvement after that- if not i will look into getting a graphire2
(is that a worth while upgrade- i know they r same size but the graphire has dbl the pressure levels for a start)

im not sure if this helps, but i have noticed that if you have your wacom too close to your monitor, it gets "jittery".

thanks for the idea- but still happens.
its MOST noticable in flash wen drawing slowly- if i try to draw an 'S' like shape i will get these little lags and the curves end up with a small 'notch' or bent in the curve :mad:
i cant say i noticed this before- so maybe after another format and install of windows it will all be better
if not, then new tablet here i come

I have a graphire2 too, and I don't know why, but it lagged a little when I drawed... The CPU activity increased while I was painting fast with low pressure... Maybe a bad software that "disturbed" my graphire
Now it works fine, even when I paint fast
Another thing I find weird: the drivers on the wacom website are older than the drivers on the CD ! Maybe it's because I was on the europeans website...
Well, the drivers are just cool, but I think some options are a little bit messy... I won't playing around with these options again, like shortcuts assigned to a button
