Those who practice the crafts of visual arts are very familiar with Wacom. They have been providing artistic alternatives to human-computer interfacing that have benefited many in our field.
From the Bamboo and Intuos tablets that started the pen to computer interface, Wacom have taken their technology to new levels in the last few weeks with the introduction of the Inkling and the upgrade to the Cintiq. While we are all waiting to see more of what the Inkling can do, the mark Cintiq has made on traditional animation is undeniable. In their latest upgrade, the Cintiq 24HD brings a bigger screen now with HD aspect, more flexible positioning, a wider viewing angle and better color depth and calibration capabilities.
While this blog leans more towards Guild specific studios and issues, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the latest offerings from the company that has become synonymous with the creation of our craft. After the fold, videos for your viewing pleasure.
