Fucking Mac OS Yosemite maveric shit.
I held onto snow leopard for as long as I could, but the other programs on my computer really started to bug out, so I finally caved and updated.
In theory, it would be fine, cause I found a nice fujitsu tablet laptop. It uses less power, I can run design doll off it and it... suddenly stopped letting F8 interact with the screen tablet pen. Kinda frustrating cause it was working perfectly for the first week and then suddenly nothing. It worked with everything BUT macromedia software, which was frustrating as heck. I could use a regular intous tablet on it, but that was awkward on a laptop and even then it would crash if I wasn't extra super careful.
I almost caved and got Adobe Animate. which really would have crippled my budget. Then Open toonz made that big announcement about become free, so I waited to see what that was like. I didn't spend too much time with it, but it didn't look like there was a way to scrub audio from within the program, which made it a deal breaker.
The whole thing was really frustrating. I even tried installing leopard on an external drive, but it wouldn't respond to the tablet anymore.
Then a miracle happened.
I got tea on my laptop!
The keyboard ended up being the only thing damaged, but before I waited to find out, I looked for a replacement. I found another Fujitsu laptop at a lower price, and best of all, It had windows 7 on it, which thank fucking god, runs Macromedia perfectly.
So we are back on the wagon now. Back to work everyone.
