Cintiqs



Looks like Christmas came a little early for HoC. We finally bit the bullet and dropped way too much money to buy Wacom Cintiq tablet monitors. Hopefully the expense will be justified especially since we are an almost completely digital studio.

We also bought a wack load of ToonBoom Solo licenses for an upcoming project. For those who don't know, Solo is a vector based software package that is a lot like Flash except that it is specifically made for studio production animation and it costs about five times more. We are betting that the combination of the new hardware and software with our digital pipeline will allow us to create work that exceeds the normal capability of a small studio like ours.

niceee, make sure to make a post about how they work out.

I've been wondering how different it is to just straight up draw on the screen versus on a tablet.

You guys must have grinded SUPER -HARD and earned those. Can't wait to see some cintiq magic ala HoC style.

You know that I'm actually in this picture? It's a good thing I wore white sleeves, or I'd be completely invisible! :/

Hey Kevin,

I definitely update everyone on the progress of our new tools. It's always a gamble to try new stuff but that's the way we roll.

Happy with the Cintiqs over there in the Cool House? I have a question I was hoping someone could help me with...

I want to buy a Wacom tablet, not sure if I should get the Graphire 4 or Intuos 3. I want to use it for drawing. Please advise!
