Hey, just new to this site and I was wondering if anyone had ever used a tablet when working with their 3d stuff? I know its perfect for 2d (photoshop) etc. but does working with a tablet make max easier? I was just wondering because i have my tablet and i mostly use it for matte painting and such and i just started my 3d class at school. Any feedback would rock! ~thanks much

I've seen some of the guys at work use their tablets in Max, but then again, some of them use their tablets for navigating through the filesystem too...

I would say that it might be more natural on the mouse. From my experience working in 3DS max, there isn't very much "doing" that requires a long drawing movement. A lot of it is fine adjustment and general clicking, rather than long brush strokes, etc.

So therefore, I would say, if you aren't really quick on the tablet, I would just stick to the mouse. If you are comfortable on the tablet, its somewhat decent, and you are quick on it, give it a try.
