Hello, I enjoy making videos such as comedy sketches that I act in and edit myself, and also motion graphics and animation, I like making wizards and make them have wizard spells like shooting lightning, I also like making cartoons, I use Adobe After effects, premiere pro, illustrator, photoshop, Adobe animate, and more, I’m fed up with having to use my mouse to draw charts tees and shapes and navigate through the tools when drawing or creating and animating, I also saw a video on YouTube where a guy was tracing a character frame by frame and turning live action into cartoon which I want to be able to do, I have no idea what tablet to buy or what is any good, I know that I want one where you can draw on screen and I know that I want one that’s fairly big, but other than that I don’t know what’s best or what’s good, does anyone know if the perfect tablet is out there, I don’t want to spend more than 400 pounds but if there is one that’s perfect for what I do I don’t mind going higher.

Honestly you're going to need to spend considerably more than £400 for the list of things you mentioned.

iOS doesn't have an 'after effects' type program either and seeing as os-x doesn't have tablet support (yet, I'm guessing it's coming at some point with the recent changes) you're basically looking at a windows device where imo the best choice is a Microsoft Surface model. The Surface Go is not powerful enough so you're looking at surface pro or above and I wouldn't recommend ANY windows device with less than 8GB ram these days so you're looking around £1000 by the time you add on the stylus etc.

I currently have a very powerful PC which could probably handle any tablet, I’ve been doing further research and am looking at the kamves pro 16, do you know if that’s any good?

I don't have first hand experience, some youtube video's (this guy is pretty balanced/honest on reviews) seem to say huion have improved and probably about 90% of wacom but other than that no idea, most of use wacom....


Oh and my bad, I thought you were after a stand alone tablet rather than one you plug into the pc...
