Sketching and exploring your ideas on the Cintiq is a great way to begin your workflow as the digital output can be used directly as the foundation for finished artwork, 3D models and animation.
3D modellers enjoy the precise control of pushing and pulling points, sculpting and applying textures directly on the surface of a model with the Cintiq Professional Pen. Cintiq offers a highly realistic and immersive experience for sculpting in popular software such as Mudbox and ZBrush. Users of Autodesk® 3Ds Max and Maya also benefit from modelling with the pen, using the pressure sensitive features in these applications for additional control in creating the final representation and animation of a model.
Users of Final Cut, Premiere Pro, After Effects and other editing applications appreciate the natural feel of editing on the Cintiq, while animators enjoy the creation and animation of characters in popular applications from Smith Micro® and Toon Boom®.
The final steps in visualisation often include the combination of 2D adjustments such as the addition of textures, colour adjustment, and the compositing of images to 3D models. For this final step, Cintiq users can use all the power of the pressure sensitive features in popular creative applications and the fluid experience of working directly on screen to adjust and finalize their artwork.
