"Wacom and NX: no pressure sensitivity"


US
          

Hi Gang-

I have the Wacom Intuos 3 tablet, with the latest driver, and I'm not getting any pressure sensitivity functions in Capture NX (latest version).

Any ideas?

Thanks

I don't have any real suggestions. Do you have other programs you can try that have pressure sensitive functions? Are you on Mac or Windows? Have you played with the settings in the Wacom driver? I can't remember if there is anything in Wacom's driver settings that shows the result of changing pressure on the pen. What I'm trying to say is that it would be good if you can determine if this is a problem with the pen/tablet or with NX2.

Hi Danny~

I think it's an NX thing, as the pressure sensitivity works fine within the tablet's Settings mode (i.e. I can test, and set the sensitivity level).

Frustrating as NX has the option for pressure sensitivity, so it MUST be possible!

Anybody else?

If you think it is an NX/NX2 specific problem, I would try looking at the Nikontech Support site. If you click the "Ask a Question" button, you will have to register to have a user ID. Maybe they can help, but given my experiences with Nikon's service for their software products, I would not hold my breath.

Well, that's strange; I use an Intuos 3 tablet too and pressure sensitivity works just fine.

Have you set the right options for it?
Select the brush tool, you should then see the brush options, size, hardness, opacity, and pressure controls. Set this one to anything other than "none".

All should be fine now.

Hope this helps,

Hayo--What version driver are you using? I went back to an earlier driver, and it does work now, though with some error messages I have to keep x-ing out.

I'm on Mac version 6.1.2-5.

If you're on windows, try reinstalling the version with which it did not work for you. I remember having strange problems with NX (e.g. displaced cursor) when using the tablet under windows, these went away after I reset the preferences (somewhere there's an option to do so). This may help in your case too.

Cheers,

I was having pressure sensitivity problems with the new Wacom Fun where the pen was too twitchy and the pen strokes/brushes inconsistent. Wacom tech strongly recommended removing the driver completely, reinstalling the latest driver, repairing permissions (I'm on a Mac) and then restarting the computer. This seemed to clear up about 75% of the problem. I'm still having issues with the eraser not corresponding to the pen's stroke or brush size.
