Customer feedback: top five reasons to edit with a Wacom pen
1) The ergonomics of the pen: The use of the Wacom pen provides a more natural way to work. Video editors tell us it reduces their risk of repetitive stress injuries, or RSIs.
2) Speed: Resounding comments are that video editors work faster and with more fluidity.
3) Precision in edits: In Premiere Pro particularly, the ability to easily pull frames into After Effects® and make corrections using the pressure-sensitive features in Adobe’s® Brush Engine are big wins with editors.
4) Productivity gains: Surprising to many users at first, the ExpressKeys on Intuos Pro pen tablets and Cintiq displays deliver unexpected productivity gains. Programming application-specific keyboard shortcuts into ExpressKeys puts functions a single-click away.
5) Fun matters: Whether video editing is your full-time job or a passionate hobby, it makes a difference how much you enjoy the process. Ask around, make the time commitment to learn a way of working, and you'll enjoy the process a whole lot more.
