wacom touch

    Has anyone done anything with the raw touch events of the new wacom cintiq 24HD touch? since Im not too much into external development I would be very happy if someone could help me to get the raw touch data out on a network port or external for example. See the API link below. I have a lot of ideas what to do with the multitouch Data in Max, which i'd love to try but up until now I can' t handle the API to be able to cook such app.
    thanks falk

      there's a wacomtouch object (beta version, and OS 10.6 or sup.) available here :
      Unfortunately, as stated in the api documentation, not every tablet gives access to the raw data : "The low level data provided by the API is finger point data, blob region data and/or raw sensor data. Some devices may not support all data types."
      Do you know if the "cintiq 24HD touch" supports it ? (I know the bamboo CTH-470 does not).
      you can figure out if a tablet has raw data support or not by looking at the "decodeCapabilityFlags" patcher in the help patch.

      Yes, the Cintiq 24HD touch supports both blob and raw sensor data. @S2M: Does your s2m.wacomtouch external support those? Have you actually tested it with a Cintiq 24HD touch device?

      thanks luigi. you're right, here are listed the devices capabilities : http://www.wacomeng.com/touch/WacomFeelMulti-TouchFAQ.htm#_Toc331140757
      at the moment the external only supports touch point data, and we haven't tested it with a cintiq 24hd touch. gonna think about it, but I can't promess we'll add raw data support soon.

      Hi S2M,
      thanks for your reply. Is the source code for your external available? I am asking because I might come across a Cintiq 24HD Touch in the near future. I was planning to write an external to explore the features of this device in Max, but you beat me to it. So, since you have something working already I wouldn't want to reinvent the wheel and I would just add the features I need to your code. Feel free to email me privately if you'd like: superbigio [at] yahoo [dot] com
      Thanks for your consideration.
