Hi...

And Welcome to using Combustion ..... Yes, you can use a tablet with your combustion: Wacom is a pretty popular favorite, and you can set it up anyway you like.. There are no reported problems using that type of optional tablet with Combustion, either on the MAC or PC...

You can learn a lot about using Combustion off the internet - either through user forums (like this one) .... Here's a quick run-down...

Books:

If you are a beginner, first do the 13 included tutorials...

Next, I suggest the Official Discreet Combustion V2 CourseWare (from your local discreet dealer) as it gives you 37 more lessons..

I wrote and sell a Combustion book, but it is more for users who already know what they are doing, as it has tips and tricks.... my book is at http://www.mci.dk/combustion.

There is a Training DVD out now at: http://www.techanim.com

Next month, Ken LaRue (and pals) will release a REALLY HOT Combustion training DVD set .... This should be GREAT! Info will be posted (when available) at: http://www.thestreetproductions.com

There will be more Combustion Specific books next year..
For now, that's what you can choose from...

Best O Luck,

JACK

Hi...
Thanks a lot Jack for ur answer. I'm happy that this forum is alive.
I'm a french effect artist working in Shanghai. Things are nice down there. I want also to learn flame and inferno but Found nothing about it and above all no possibilities to work with it.
Anyway I will wait for an opportunity.

Now let's back to combustion interface...

thanks again and seeya....
