    Alright, finally got around to trying a few things you mentioned - looks like I did start off this tablet with a fresh install after uninstalling my old wacom drivers. I checked the windows pen settings and turned them ALL off. Since none of them seemed relevant aka "Suggest apps for pen." - Is that actually useful for people?

    Anyways, after turning those off, I don't seem to be getting any lagging between actions now! Thanks a bunch for the help :D

    Nice! glad to hear it. Yeah those settings are awful, they should shut them down if you plug in a tablet.

    Dang, I somehow got unsubscribed from this thread.

    @GrieforGlory I know I'm late, but in case it helps you or anyone else:
    I'm happy with my standing desk situation! I got the following.
    Edit: The strength on the arm is plenty for max pressure on the stylus. Sometimes I'll grab the monitor from underneath, in the same feeling as I might when holding a piece of paper to a desk, and that's enough to really go HAM on scribbling or whatever.

    Also, does anyone know about stylus charging cables? I think I lost my PN02 cable in rearranging the house.

    I see that the Huion cable looks nearly identical, but I can't find any electrical rating information for either XP-PEN or Huion products.

    I dont know anything about that product family, I'm surprised the pen doesn't have a AAAA battery like most non-wacom pens. At 2 bucks, probably no harm in trying?


    I had some luck just throwing my last yiynova question out to twitter, you might have some luck with the Huion owners out there.

    Huh! I never considered disassembling it. I just assumed it would be a soldered in lithium battery.

    Maybe I'll take it to Twitter. Thanks!

    I got an ipad pro!

    Right now i'm just messing with photoshop sketch and illustrator whateveritscalled.

    Is procreate worth the $10, should I get something else instead?

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    I too just got an iPad pro! I will try to do a write up, but I'm currently using clip paint, which requires alot more money, so depends on your needs. Procreat is nice, but you'll need to get used to its largely gesture and touch based UI.

    Clip Studio Paint? Is that a separate license from the desktop version?

    Yeah I'm trying to figure out the best solution as I'm already paying for Adobe CC, I'm mostly mad they haven't put out a proper photoshop/illustrator like app.

    Unfortunately, yes, as far as I can tell. Its monthly for this, because fuck me.

    It is literally just the desktop version, with a few mobile/touch oriented tricks up its sleeve.

    :-\

    One of the reasons I was excited about Clip was that it was a reasonable price for a one time purchase.

    Oh well, I still like the desktop version!

    As yet another new iPad + Pencil owner, I highly recommend a matte screen protector if you don’t mind a fair bit of grain. I got this one, I think.

    I personally have been quite happy with the trade off, because it feels so, so much nicer to me.

    I’ve also been using Autodesk’s Sketchbook, but have heard a lot about this Procreate. I’m pretty sure Autodesk has everything I need for the moment, but it very, very occasionally struggles a bit. Does Procreate run consistently?

    Adobe might be planning a full release of PS for the Ipad, according to engadget here, so that might be something to look forward to if none of these options suit you quite yet. I dont know how sure it is, and how well it will run though.

  • DoodmannDoodmann Registered User regular
    Procreate is well worth the $10 just to figure out if it's right for you or not.
