    Paint more Paths with AvidFX

    Here, as promised, is the follow up to the "Paint a Path with AvidFX" tutorial I did recently.

    In this tutorial I only give you some food for further thought...... maybe the knowledge can make your life lighter at some stage in your future editing.

    Douglas,

    More good ideas:

    I'm sure using Wacom Pad is a learning experience on it's own but so far do you find it better than mouse for drawings like your route?

    Re: Paint more Paths with AvidFX

    I can only speak for myself in this case.

    The Wacom Intuos Pad takes a bit of getting used to.

    I started trying it in Photoshop and Corel Painter.
    At first I thought I would be using it only for painting effects, but I soon learned that it can speed up the actual navigation and operation of the programmes. I mean that you can use it instead of the keyboard.
    Once you get the hang of using it for both painting and keyboard things can speed up considerably.

    For some jobs I use the mouse and keyboard for other I use the Wacom only.
    You can have all three available at anytime.

    Drawing in AvidFX (Boris Red) is sometimes easier with the Wacom -  sometimes easier with the mouse.
    I think that each individual will have his/her own preference.

    If you have a few yen over after Christmas and New Year and you have the patience to learn the way of operating it, then a Wacom Intuos Pad is, in my opinion, a good investment.

    Regards,
    Douglas

    PS. Make sure it is one of the models that has the set of programmable buttons on each side of the drawing area.
