Multi-Touch Software Support:
The combination of direct, on-screen, pen and multi-touch control offers exciting possibilities for immersive, natural interaction with creative software applications. Wacom is working closely with developers to ensure wide-spread support is included in popular software applications. Current support for multi-touch control depends upon both the software applications that you use and your operating system.

Mac Operating Systems:
The Wacom software driver for the Cintiq 24HD touch enables 2-finger touch in applications running on Mac OSX(5.8 or later) as well as multi-finger custom Wacom gestures. For example you can use 2 –finger touch gestures to pan, scroll, zoom and rotate the canvas in applications that support these features.

Windows Operating Systems:
Direct on-screen multi-touch control is currently only available to Windows 7 users and not users of previous Windows operating systems such as XP, and Vista. Windows 7 natively supports 2-finger multi-touch including panning, scrolling and zooming. However, not all creative applications have developed support for Windows direct multi-touch.

Multi-touch Applications:
Applications with full multi-touch integration have a fully integrated touch experience and will provide the most advanced levels of functionality with the Cintiq 24HD touch. A leading multi-touch application is Corel Painter 12. The latest version of Painter 12 (12.2) for both the Mac and Windows provides an advanced level of fluid, simultaneous pen and multi-touch control for use in digital painting. Watch the Corel video to see the amazing multi-touch experience that Corel has created for use with the Cintiq 24HD touch.

Other software developers are actively developing advanced multi-touch gesture support. Check back here frequently for updates on new releases.
