I am planning on buying a graphics tablet to use within Blender and I have a couple of questions. Is there anything special I need to do when I get it in order for it to work or is it pretty much just install the drivers and you’re ready to go? Are there some tablets that are incompatible that I shouldn’t buy?
If you buy a good tablet (or even a cheap one from Monoprice) it should basically just be plug-and-play. Install the driver that comes with it and you’re good to go. There may be some setting to tweak in the individual programs you wish to use it with, but they’re usually pretty self explanatory.
On a related note, a tablet is the best tool I ever bought for digital art. It will change the way you work.
