5. Faced with a choice: Which input device would you prefer –
Tablet or haptic device?
I work on a cintiq and love it.
I have never been able to work with a tablet. There is a disconnect in my brain when I try. I have never tried a haptic sculpting tool, but would love to, and if any company wants me to review one, send it on!
When I have a maquette that needs to be digitized I use a Next Engine scanner as mentioned in the Mudbox book. They are good and not very expensive. It costs me about $1,000 to have something scanned at a service bureau, so the scanner pays for itself quickly.
