I have started using a wacom bamboo tablet in a rather large video performance patch. It sometimes works fine, but sometimes it seems to get sort of clogged up in the pipeline. I'm using it to either scratch video at different magnifications or draw overtop of the video as a mask.
The video continues to run fine (sometimes the tablet seems to drag it down with it though), midi inputs make it in on time..but the tablet will either stop completely or just respond every 5 seconds or so. I have it set to receive the same bangs as my jitter metro but have experienced this with its own separate poll as well
Is there something I can look into for the advanced scheduler settings to make sure it's getting it's proper place in the priority/queue and not being deferred to low priority like it seems to be. It would be nice to give it it's own core to work in, but I don't know if poly~ would be something that would work in this situation. I have the most recent wacom drivers (I assume the CNMAT wacom object just gets it's values from this driver)..although I just updated to one they released in the last week and I'm about to test it.
os x 10.6.3, 8gb ram, macbook pro 2.66 i7, max 5.1.5
edit: for more info..I'm using a qmetro at 16ms and I am using the 'flusheventqueue 1' attribute of the wacom object to keep it open...but it just seems really dead as soon as I turn on my jitter metro
