you can get tablets that display your screen on the pad??? im guessing you can, but im sure it would be alot more money then most others. traditional tablets dont have a display. whats the difference between display on the tablet and your monitor screen? not a whole lot really.

Flash has onion skinning no matter what tool do you use to draw.

Tablet PC's exist and can be purchased for a grand or two. Wacom offers the Cintiq wich is a 21" LCD display that you can draw on. It's really amazing, but it costs around $2500.

Sorry, I didn't understand you right. I think I've heard or read somewhere that there are tablets that have display on it, but I don't know how they work.

A) This question has no point i you are buying Intous 3 or Graphire because they are like mouses so you get an idea. You draw on the tablet but you see on the screen

B)Cintiq is really really really really expensive dont buy it unless you are very rich or you are an awesome animator that will use it 23 hrs a day. And no matter what, what you see in cintiq is exactly the same that you would see in your screen (or better, because its a LCD)

You can't see anything on the tablet, at least the less expensive ones. I thought it was weird too, but I bought a graphire 4 6x8 and its really easy to use and just great. Not being able to see what you're drawing on the tablet doesn't make it hard to draw, seeing it on the monitor and drawing is easy.

My advice is to avoid tablets that are cheap, like those tiny 4x5" ones. (mine slides around, gets bumped, gives me carpal tunnel...)

Cintiqs, in my opinion, are tablets made for either the rich or for artists who make a living making art.
