Wacom Intuos pen not working with Premiere CC 2015
on Jul 1, 2016 at 2:18:17 pm

Hi there,

I hope someone can help with the problem I am having.
I'm using a Wacom Intuos pen and touch, small CTH-480, and the operating system is Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
In adobe Premiere CC 2015, the tablet is not working correctly.
For example, the screen seems to corrupt when I interact with certain functions using the pen. When I use the mouse for the same action, it is fine.
So it seems the source of the problem is the pen.
Does anyone know of any known issues with this product running on Mac OS X and experiencing the same problem?
I need to use the pen but it's proving dysfunctional and I urgently need a solution.
Any help is much appreciated.
Many thanks.

I'm having issues too with my tablet and Premiere CC15. Are you still having issues? In the motion panel, I try to adjust numerical values by click sliding over the number and it won't work. The mouse works fine. For example to change Position, Scale, Rotation any numbers no longer allow me to use my stylus and wacom tablet.
