Drawing with a tablet has always been a struggle. Typically, drawing programs (like most software) are designed to be used with a mouse. Tablet support is usually thrown in as an afterthought, under the theory that any pointing device will obey the same principles as a mouse. The result: an experience which only superficially captures the “feel” of a pen, while ignoring the subtle nuances.
Abandoning the traditional mouse-oriented paradigm, TabletDraw is designed from the ground up for use with a drawing tablet - specifically focusing on the realism of the drawing experience. Instead of setting brush thickness based solely on pen pressure, TabletDraw uses a combination of factors including speed and pen pressure to Create a realistic pen-and-paper feel.The bottom line: If you can draw on a piece of paper, you can draw with TabletDraw.
One of the biggest differences Between drawing with a mouse vs. a tablet is that a mouse is best suited for slow, deliberate curves while a pen lends itself to fast strokes. Unfortunately, your computer can’t always keep up with these fast strokes, leaving the software to “connect the dots”. Most programs do this with straight lines, leaving the user with a jagged approximation instead of a Smooth curve. Other programs use smoothing algorithms which ignore fine detail and degrade performance. TabletDraw uses SwiftCurve technology to accurately and efficiently represent the curves you draw without bringing your hardware to its knees.
