I also have one too. Here is a list of progs that work with Ntrig
1. Illustudio (by celsys) better than Photoshop for illustration, and same makers of Manga Studio and Retas Pro line of products 2. Manga studio 4 EX (For comic book creation) 3. Sketchbook Pro 4.Toon Boom Harmony 10 ( based on a friend who has my unit and uses for 2d animation) 5. Toon Boom Storyboard Pro 5.Tvpaint 10 (not older versions) 6. Mudbox 7. Art Rage 8. Digicel Flipbook 9. Modo 10. Sketchbook Designer 2013
Also the new Clip Studio Paint(probably closest prog to Photoshop) by Celsys. Pretty much all the Celsys progs you find in the settings for changing from Wintab to Tablet PC. Hope this helps
It is true that Wacom have lots of attributes to their hardware that N-trig don't. I actually sold my Intuos 5 to put towards this tablet (if you can believe it). I could have gotten a Cintiq with the money that I spent on this machine, but I found that it's of better use to me if it's portable as well as allowing you to draw on-screen. So I opted for the Duo 11.
Apparently any Wacom stylus works with it - but I doubt it since it's N-trig (lol). There was a convertible laptop/tablet for the same amount using a Wacom stylus, maybe I should have opted for it. At any rate, the model is new, so I am hoping it's just a matter of time before some working drivers are released.
I can tell you from experience that other wacom styluses very well might not work with the n-trig digitizers. The ones I've tried have never gone well
Oh, and keep the tablet out of the light. Lights fuck with N-Trig hardware. I'm actually serious...they work much better in the dark. N-trig claims it's interference from high-frequency florescent bulbs but on my tablet it's light in general.
