I'm not sure if any fellow artists have noticed these things before, but I'm having a hell of a time trying to draw anything lately streaming or not. Here are the scenarios:
Program used: Pain Tool SAI
Stream program: Livestream Webcaster
Tablet used: Genius G-Pen 4500 (Bamboo size, but not the same as it)
Laptop: Dell(Yeah, first problem) Latitude D505 (...and second problem)
While Streaming, while I use the tablet and start to draw the ink is following very slowly. Even when I spirals they don't loop around.
Example: Instead of a "ooooo" pattern, it's a "mmmm" pattern
As Issue 1 happens, I use the mouse and it decently follows. But as I try to do circles, there's always a line that zips across instead of completing the circle.
Example: I draw a circle like this: O and I end up with this: D
I turned every program off and stopped the stream and yet the problem from Issue 1 still happens. Then once I used the mouse I can get full circles but they suddenly become eight up to multiple sided shapes.
Long story short, it's like the laptop is seriously lagging like hell even when SAI is the only thing running. Even though getting a new laptop/desktop would be ideal a few months down the road, what should I do now?
