This is fantastic information for those of us just starting out. I do have one quick question. You mentioned Graphics tablet. I was already looking at the Bamboo but was wondering, I’m looking at both the Capture and Create and wondered if one was better than the other or if it matters?
Again, thanks for the wonderful topic. I’ll be visiting this post often.
Aha, congrats on your first post and welcome to CGTalk.
I have a bamboo touch and turned the touch off I think the most important thing is pressure sensitivity, which all those tablets you mentioned probably have, and size. I have dual monitors and the bamboo is a perfect size for them and also makes the tablet small for travel.
Depending on what apps you want to use the wacom for you may have to tune it. For instance on windows you have to disable the Aero mouse theme and a bunch of other services to get the tablet to work well with 3dsmax. That is just one case, the web will provide you with solutions on this,
Thank you for the quick response Kanga. I’ll be ordering my Wacom soon. One side question. With going back to school for graphic design, I will have the following available to me. PC, Graphics Tablet and CS6. Are there any other tools/programs that will help or be necessary? My main focus will be photo manipulation initially (for book covers, websites etc). I’m hoping to branch out into doing more creative art from scratch, but need somewhere to start.
Thanks again for posting the information, I’ve been looking for online school but it’s very expensive n so I’m trying to learn by myself. I hope someday I’ll join a online school n get a degree… I’m basically interested in 3d modelling (architecture). Once I start I’ll definitely put my work so that I can learn more.
There are many open source middleware solutions available, but very few currently used too develop paid or free interactive projects ported to the online app stores, so to my knowledge this is just a personal selection devs have utilised, recently.

I’ve recently started a Youtube series to show my process of building a full model of a WW2 armoured car. Trying to release a new video each week if anyone wants to follow along http://www.chrisburns.com.au/sd-kfz-222/
