Hi GCharb, welcome to Synfig!
Consider to have here the same good reputation you have in Anime Studio forum.
Please do not wait to ask for help here. Me and all the people will be so glad to help you on any doubt you have.
Gcharb, please download and install the latest version. HERE: synfig.org/en/current-release
The wacom bug introduced in 0.62.00 is fixed and the single thread renderer is enabled by default too in that new version. It shouldn’t crash as easily.
Thanks for report the success.
Maybe you should enable 32 bits compatibility if your W7 is a 64 bits one. That can make a difference too.
I will try that and see how it goes, then report here.
I am running the latest, .0.62.01, my Wacom still does not work for drawing, only windows resize and picking tools. I turned it on under files/Input Devices. I have set it up for screen and window, same thing.
Ok, made a few tests, when I run it in compatibility mode (vista sp2) it seems much more stable.
As far as the Wacom goes, works for a bit, then stop working. Actually works in everything but the canvas, I can select tools, params, menus etc. but dead in the canvas. If I turn it off, then back on, it works again, for a while!
On the positive side, I like the software more and more!
Look the configuration that Gimp has in its extended device input dialog. Set up the same values in the Synfig one. Both use the same interface to comunicate with wacom devices, so it must work. (Same with Inkscape).
Remember that you have to enable and diable the same input devices to make it work. I thought it was solved in this version. Maybe it is due that you had previously another Synfig Studio installed and it is using the previous configuration.
If the manual configuration doesn’t work, please remove the settings file from your synfig folder in your home directory. Synfig Studio will create a new one, once it is started again. Then it should detect the input devices correctly.
Back here if it doesn’t, please
