Chapter 4. Win, Lose, or Draw? Draw!: Cr... > There’s Too Much Pressure

There’s Too Much Pressure

If you’re using a drawing tablet to create artwork in Flash, you’re one of the lucky ones. I love these things because they give you a much more natural sense of control over your drawings. Flash even steps up to help you make what you draw as natural as possible.

With a tablet installed, activate the Paintbrush Tool in Flash and look at the Use Pressure option just under the word “Options” on the right. Activating this option will tell Flash to sense the amount of pressure you’re using while painting, giving your strokes a more natural look. I know several animators who would never use Flash if it didn’t have this simple feature. If you don’t see the option I’m referring to, then you’ll need to go out and buy a tablet to see it.
