    Default A new tool for drawing frames?

    Just wanted to show this as it may be a very good tool for drawing frames.

    Maybe it's still available, or someone could remake it
    but then with just one button for registering the points.

    The benefit of that thing is that your hand will be much more stable when drawing than a tablet.
    And preciser than a touchscreen.

    And if you use it on top of a screen then you can see the point you place directly.

    Sounds like an interesting tool to me.
    because of you can hand trace easly as it has a vizor in the middle of the cirkle thingy
    and well if you can see the dot directly when having a monitor underneath *instead of a finger blocking the view* then I'd say this is interesting.

    Could be wrong though

    A tablet? The old way? I have a big one. I rarely consider using it.

    You may have a hard timing finding one with the puck.

    There are 3D ones using a robotic arm in reverse.

    no no not a tablet.
    That thing with the vizor he had in his hand in the video.

    The benefit of this compared to a tablet is that you slide it over instead of hovering like a tablet.
    And I think your movements willl be alot less shakey when drawing.

    A digitizing puck (as opposed to a pen stylus)? I think many tablets support both.

    I think Wacom is a classic brand, they call theirs a "lens cursor" ...

    Wacom tablets are very good.

    hmm well I was reading a bit about that tool and it seems that it puts strain on your arm.
    hmm not sure if Im going to give it a try because those intuos models are expensive as hell.

    Well I got a tablet though.

    Better just stick to the 3D part for me
    maybe when I get waaaaay more time I make a decision on doing that
