October 17, 2006 | 7:01 am

Hey all,

object.

Hi all,

Thought I’ll add my wacom related question to this thread.

I have a patch in which two graphire tablets (the ancient ones, meaning first generation USB)control some movemoent on the screen, focussing on some part of large pictures, zooming in/out (by pressure) and texturing those onto gl.videoplanes.

The problem is that I can’t get rid of the mousepointers. When using just one tablet, and giving the nopointers 1 message there is no problem, but cn’t get it working whith two of them

Any one an idea?

best regards

pieter

dan

The problem is that I’ll need my mouse to control the gl world
and can’t afford my wacoms taking control

best (write you soon with some non max related stuff)

Hi. I’m looking to get a Wacom tablet…the Graphire 2 is pretty cheap, but I have no idea how good it is (I want a nice steady stream of numbers without too much, or any – noise). Also – does it work with [hi] or the [wacom] object. Has anyone got one who’d be willing to share some info?

Thanks

Robin,

the Wacom tablets are excellent input devices – no "noise"/jitter and
incredibly high resolution. I believe the high-end ones are 5000×5000
points per inch or something to that effect, so you can divide the space
into various control-areas and then make an overlay for it.

not to mention how wonderful it is to draw patch chords with it, and when you get really used to it its a ton faster.. OOh and pressure sensitive.

I have a little 4×6 one and I use it constantly rather then mouse. Its small but great.. actually I prefer it over the huge ones.. so portable.

I’ve been using Wacoms for a number of years – I find them very
reliable and good to use – the wacom object provides all you need to
interface to Max. I find the the multi-button mouse works best for
me, rather than the pens – mostly because I find the pens get lost in
performance – also because I can use the buttons to switch easily
between controlling different things with the tablet. I use an A4
version – they are very light, so even the larger ones can be
transported easily – no power supply needed because it powers itself
off USB. It is an important gesture controller for me in performance.

Best

I’m having trouble with a patch written for me. The problem is I only get 5 or 6 fps on moving graphics with a pen (2009 17" MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM, 3.06 GHz, 6MB L1 cache, Nvidia 9400M and 9600GT, SSD). It starts at 30 fps when static and quickly reduces to 5 or 6 when moving the pen across the Wacom surface – either quickly or slowly. The person who wrote this patch (who I’ve already asked and isn’t sure) runs it on his 2012 MacBook with an ADM Radeon 6750 and gets 27 fps.

Excepting the different processor and card speeds in the MacBooks, can you think of why I don’t get 27 fps with my computer? And is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks,

b

PS: Is there something in the way Wacom sends info to the computer? And is there a better interface for this from Max that will fix the problem?

Turn overdrive off? (Options menu.)

BTW: why resurrect an old thread?

OD wasn’t / isn’t on.

Happy to make a new thread (i do want the answer) – it’s just that a bunch of people who actually use Wacom (including my very busy friend who wrote the patch) are/were here :•))

hmmm. I’ve had the opposite problem… when Jitter started getting intense, my Wacom input was being slowed down.

Are you using some version of the Wacom object? If so, are you polling with the same (q)metro that drives your video? It’s hard to guess without seeing your patch. Max 5?
