So for awhile I’ve been trying to figure out how to use my tablet PC in conjunction with Blender. I know theres a port being worked on but I simply couldn’t wait. I’ve tried many different apps and such to try and get that cintiq feel that I could use with blender. The one I found that works out the best has been Kainy.
Has anyone else been having luck with this app? Do you have any layouts you’d like to share, tips or tricks you’ve learned?
For those that don’t know what Kainy is…
Its streaming software meant to allow you to play your PC games on your tablet. Its customizable UI is a fairly unique feature and it gave me an idea, I could use this with Blender and solve a lot of issues that streaming apps have with a program like blender. I line the bottom and the sides up with hotkeys and work in the middle. Its good for when I want to stretch out and work on something.
In any case I’m just scratching the service of ways to use this app. The customizable UI has been really helpful. Whats even better you can stream to multiple devices.
I have a nice android phone that I use beside my tablet that I can set all my hotkeys on giving me the full tablet for work space.
So far it’s been really nice for sketching, painting and modeling.
Mainly what I’m hoping to gain from this post is to find others that are using this setup that may have tips and tricks or share some things they may have learned that I haven’t figured out yet.
If nothing else maybe it will help others that have been looking for a cheap Cintiq alternative.
