    current state of Wacom and Avid compatibility?

    I havent' heard much lately about whether Wacom and Avid are still having compaitiblity issues.  I was thinking about pickng up a wacom tablet again, but was curious as to what everyone's expericen is with MC 2018.X and higher and wacom tablets.

     

    Thanks

    Re: current state of Wacom and Avid compatibility?

    I'm on 2017.7 and mac OS 10.13.6.

    I was just curious.  The last itme I used my wacom was with MC 8.x and back on either sierra or yosemite.  I was thining about using it again, but was wondering if the bugs had been worked out.  Anumber of posts suggest that all is well again.

     

    Thanks

    Re: current state of Wacom and Avid compatibility?

    I would like to know too please.  Which Avid versions are working with Wacom and which versions to avoid.

     

    I definitely had problems with compatibility for the first time ever last year.

    I have the 2nd generation Wacom and was on Avid 8.6.5.  I just couldn't use the Wacom at all.

     

    Recently I was on Avid 8.9.4.

    This time, it was better, but still a little buggy.  I was able to use my Wacom, but there there were still some small bugs such as constant right-clicking on its own, right-click commands windows would keep popping up when I am just hovering.  Among a few other bugs.  But definitely still usable compared to Avid 8.6.5.

    I use an Intuos Pro M with 6.3.32-4 drivers (and earlier vers.) and it works perfectly, and has for years.

    Re: current state of Wacom and Avid compatibility?

    Wacom came out with an app called "Connect my Tablet" that fixed the issues for me and allowed me to go back to my old Intuos 2 with no problems. You set up the preferences in the app, which is a bit confusing because the Wacom Preferences in the actual Mac System Preferences still gives you the "can't load" error, but as I say you set up the preferences in the app and all has been fine ever since. It's $9.99, but it worked for me.
