Last Saturday it arrived
When I first saw the box – I thought… “Who that thing is huge!!”
And I also thought “Maybe I should better have bought the small Cintiq.”
Then we read the manual (yes we did …)
And then we put it on my desk and installed the drivers.
Installation was very easy. No problems.
And then I was playing nearly the whole Saturday with it
It’s simply great! Fantastic!
It’s not to large. The size is perfect. And I’m glad now we bought the large one.
I tried it with all my applications I’m using for my work and I’ll use it for Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter and ZBrush. At the moment I’m not sure if I will also use it for Cinema. Maybe I’ll use my Graphire for that.
I never had any problems with using a regular tablet for my work. But beeing able to paint small details directly on the screen is so awsome. If you are working with Photoshop or Painter you will love the Cintiq. You will never go back to a regular tablet for your work.
I have it only a few days now and I’m so happy I have it and I can recommed it to people who may be interested in byuing a Cintiq.
Oh and you get Painter Essentials 3 together with it. I don’t need it, because I own Painter 9. But Painter is a really nice software.
