Oh, I thought you might have gone too far with your alias, but the pink hands (besides the mirrored face) were dead give aways.

The demo was done on a Lenovo tablet. One of the few with pressure sensitivity, that's why we choose it, but the processor is really slow (an old Tegra2).

The phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note, also with pressure sensitivity.
The speed is much better than on the Lenovo, the processor supports Neon acceleration (TVPaint too).
The screen, though, is small, but madsjuul can tell you more about using TVPaint for real world work on the Note (Yes mads, now you can :) )

We also tested it on an old Toshiba Folio 100 tablet. It works without problem, you just have to adapt your project size/# of layers/etc.. to the limited power of the processor, like you did 5 years ago on your PC :) (And TVPaint without pressure sensitivity isn't fun...)

The lag in drawing is mostly due to the limited power of the Tegra2 processor, it is much smaller on the 'Note. The project in the demo is in full HD (1920x1080).
You obviously can't get out of a low power dual core @ 1GHz what you get from an 8 core i7 @ 3+Ghz, which incidentally uses some 80+W which would drain a tablet battery in less than 5 minutes, and burn your hands (or lap) at the same time...

Technically, it is TVPaint Pro without any limitation from our side, but you have to adapt to the (ever increasing) power of the processor of the tablets.
Well, we don't yet support the built-in cameras/mics that most tablets offer...

A release date ? *I* can't tell.

but you can't choose your family.

I'm considering selling my Asus ep121, getting a cintiq 12 for home and a Galaxy tablet for on the go. Even more seriously I'm thinking of getting the Galaxy Note because of the pressure sensitivity. I only use my Asus for tvPaint, Sketchbook and Photoshop these days but I like the mobility of standing with a client and drawing in Sketchbook or pulling out tvPaint to animate a quick idea.

I'm super excited that tvPaint will be landing on an Android Tablet.

TVPP on an Android tablet? WOW! That sounds so good! Any idea of how much longer we need to wait till you can tell us all the details?
How about just a few questions like:
Which brand tablet would it be that'll work the best as an android tablet with TVPP?
And, will TVPP be an android version only or would there be a big update to make TVPP work on win and android?

I have an Asus EP121 Slate for win 7 that works great, but not if I go somewhere with no AC power outlet.
The battery will only last maybe 4 hrs. I would go for an android tablet if the battery could last 8 hrs or more.

The most important is to have a pressure sensitive stylus with your tablet.
Then, you can have any tablets sizes. It depends on what you want to do with it. I think the smallest tablet with a pressure sensitive stylus is the Samsung Galaxy Note.

I don't understand your question.

It really depends on how you use TVPaint. If you use it just for little drawings or adjustment, it should be ok. But if you use it for FX and more powerfull tools, your battery will be tired more rapidly.

Thank you Eric for your help. I have more questions.

Which sensitive pressure tablestylusus is the best one? :?

Wouldn't NEXUS be a good tablet or Amazon's FIRE Kindle :?

Is there anything worthwhile approx. $200. 00 USD that you don't need a magnifying glass to see with :roll:

I am looking for a lighter tablet with a really long battery time and somewhat smaller than my Asus EP 121.

And, when will TVP be posting info about the Android version like: price and specs :?:

Thank you very much.

My big question is... when will it be available and will I have to purchase a separate license to use it on an Android tablet?

I have the Kindle and I don't believe it is pressure sensitive. Have you looked into Microsoft's tablet "Surface" that is due at the end of this year? I hear only good things about it?

Thank you so much Paul, for the insight. I will wait and watch for the "SURFACE Tablet!" :D

* I just looked at it and WOW! It looks and sounds great but, what is an "EM STYLUS" :?:

Here is a link for more info for the version that has Win Pro and is the only version that has a stylus ability. Touch/finger only on RT version.

** I found out that MS hopes to release it for the Sept. school season and if not then for the christmas season. :P

*** An even better link with a download link for both versions at the bottom of the webpage

Embarrassing presentation -- mine stops just when it gets interesting. Here's a first review in the New York Times:

Isn't Samsung supposed to be releasing a 10" Galaxy note? There is no word on that yet? I would like to see this surface tablet too. I still think, in the future, a Tablet will be the ultimate mobile TVP solution. Imagine, traveling in the country and drawing stuff!!!
