Help me out guys.

I guess my fear is that I'd spend more on a decent 4K monitor now, only for it to be somewhat useless when I end up getting a Cintiq in a year or two. Anyone here have both? I'm trying to decide if I should downgrade the monitor to a 1440P instead or go all in.

The cintiq wont have accurate color because of the coating.

>>692295
You can peel off the coating of the older 21ux.

Go big or go home:
Wacom cintiq pro 32 4k

You would need arms like Dhalsim for that.

I've got both.
Better having 2 monitors than just one. Treat it like a second monitor, but you can draw on it too. It's great for putting all sorts of panels and shit on like timelines and curves and things like that.
It's a bitch trying to match colors between my monitor and the tablet though. Just get it as close as you can. It doesn't matter too much in 3d though since you'd most likely be sculpting with the tablet anyway. Worry about color and shit on the main monitor.

What size do you have. Did it improve your work.

Few things:
1. cintiqs are fun but color accurate or genreally no good for proper callibration. The distance of the nib to the actual curser might throw you off. Most prefer pad + monitor.

2. If you decide on the latter and get a proper monitor decide on the wacom pad size first.
If you go medium, you cannot go 32" display with it. The mapping will be to sensitive and even the slightest movement of the pen will move your cursor many pixels.
Thus: Medium wacom -> 27" Display, Large wacom -> 32" Display.

Now when you the latter, everything is fine and dandy. Just remember that 32" 4k displays will cost you a lot if you want a proper panel without any flaws. We are talking 1500€/$ +

If you go for 27" 4K make sure you are confident with the scaling first and no apps you regularly use will cause an issue.

Should you go 1440p? Probably not as a creative professional. There is no reason to do so now. You'll want native 4k. If you game a lot, and fast things at that and are good at it, too. Consider a 1440p but make it 144hz and go for a montior thats decent at games and graphics.

Go nuts.

I've got a 13" or so. Not too big, but I've found it decent enough to work with. Could have probably gone bigger to something like a 22" but I wasn't sure if it would take up too much space or not. I don't have problems with the size though.

As for improving my work, yeah definitely. As I said, in addition to being able to draw with it, it functions as a second monitor, so even when I'm not drawing on it, I can use it for references and other shit. Drawing on it was WAY less of a learning curve than drawing with a regular tablet. I was able to draw pretty much normally right out of the gate. Sculpting on it is pretty good as well, but you also have the problem of your hand being in the way, which doesn't happen with a screenless tablet. That would happen with normal drawing on paper as well though, so it's not hard to get used to. Honestly parallax hasn't been that big a deal for me either. You can see where your cursor is going to be so why parallax matters is beyond me.

yeah. I skipped some words here and sound like a retard. Its 1am. You'll get the picture.

Thanks anons, this is some good info. I wouldn't be getting a Cintiq quite yet, but even with my current Intuos (it's the 6x11") I hadn't even thought about how the 27" 4K screen would translate the pen movements differently. As you said, 27" will be less of an issue than something bigger, which I wouldn't go to anyway because I need a second monitor for references.

Yeah and with 1440p I didn't want to shortchange myself for the future.

You'll only have the problem with the pen movements if you mirror your screen. If you use it as a second screen, it'll be treated as independent and work 1:1. Just not every program supports dual screens or multiple windows of the same project. You'll have to see what works.

I've got one too, it's not so bad now that I'm getting used to it. 27" 4k monitor on the left, big drawboi front & center on proper stand
>>
>>693003

Do you have the ergostand or the arm. I was looking at the 24 and wondering how vital the stand or arm is. I guess you would be hunched over it without them.
>>
>>693003
>>693022
what kind of stands are you two using
>>
>>693022
>>693028
Left monitor is on an arm, Wacom 32 is on the official ergo stand. The 32 on an arm wiggles when you use it, would drive me crazy. The stand is the Rock of Gilbraltar, no regrets
