Change Minimum and Maximum pressure

Hi, after years of using wacom tablets I decided to upgrade from my 13 inch Cintiq to a 20 inch Kamvas.

If there is 1 option I really miss having it would be not being able to set the trigger point, or as wacom calls it the 'click threshold', or not being able to set my max pressure. 

Having a customizable trigger point, would allow me to have physical contact with my tablet, before I actually put down a stroke, or before it is considered a mouseclick. It just feels 'too sensitive' without a trigger point. 
Right now it feels like before I even feel contact with the tablet surface a click or a stroke has already been registered. If you had a little bit of contact with the surface and you had to apply a bit more pressure with the pen, that would make it feel more like deliberate stroke/click. 

Kind of like doing it with the mouse. Your finger rests on the button already, there is a slight amount of travel and finally the click. 

With the current pressure settings, there is no 'resting of the finger', and the travel technically occurs after the 'click' 
If you could set a trigger point, this would allow you to emulate 'resting of the finger' and the travel, with the initial pressure applied to the pen, and finally when you hit the trigger point, it is the 'click'. 

Personally I also think that if you have some contact with the tablet surface, it enables you to be more 'grounded' and you have a point of reference for how much pressure to apply.  

On the other end of the spectrum, being able to set the maximum pressure allows us to not need to apply as much force as usual to reach the.. well.. maximum amount of pressure registered by the pen. 
So if you tend to have a lighter touch, this would allow you to use 'more' of the pressure range, with less force. 

Having the trigger point and max pressure be customizable would allow us to basically remap the range or pressure and give us more control. 

Allot of drawing/painting apps nowadays have ways to change the curves inside of the app itself, but obviously you can only use those curves within those apps. It is not system wide. 

Photoshop has horrible support for stuff like that in the first place, and from what I know relies on the tablet driver for the pressure 'curve'. So whatever little options I have in the tablet driver software is what I can use for apps with basic pressure support.

So.. please, please, add more options to the pressure sensitivity settings. 
And at the bare minimum allow us to remap the range.

  • Hi Fatih Gurdal, thank you for providing your feedback to our driver pressure settings. I will forward this to our software engineers for further analysis.

  • I just wanted to post an update in here, Orliza Amodia 

    I recently acquired a new PC, and thus I redownloaded drivers for my kamvas. 

    Appearantly I have been using out of date drivers since forever!
    Multiple times I would check within the old drivers for updates and it would always say I was on the latest version. 

    I am glad to see that the new drivers do indeed have some of the options I described previously. 
    I do still wish though that there was a way to set the maximum pressure, so you wouldnt need to apply as much force to max out the pressure reading.

  • Hi Fatih Gurdal, duly noted. May I know which driver version are you currently using? If you are using the version 15 driver, may you please check if this is what you need?

    If you are using version 14 driver, you can see similar options when you click on "Digital Pen".

  • Yes please, being able to adjust the max pressure threshold will help us to gain more control of the pressure. I have been asking Huion to make this happen in the future update through Huion support, but they never add this feature. This is like a basic feature in the Wacom tablet pressure setting, so come on Huion.

  • I recently switched from Wacom to Huion and I miss being able to adjust max pressure threshold. Without it, i have to press very hard. Please make it so that max pressure threshold can be moved around in a future update. Thanks.

  • Yes please, had the same wish, for me the default max pressure on a Kamvas 24 Pro is just too much. Allowing to adjust it would be awesome!

  • Please let us adjust the maximum pressure for kamvas 24 Pro, the default (and non-adjustable) max pressure on this thing is just ridiculous, do you want your customers to develop carpal tunnel?

  • Hi Natan Dustin, thank you for posting your feature request. This has been forwarded to our software engineers.

  • Hey, when is this update coming? It's been months.

    Bold of you people to sell a 1000$+ tablet without such a basic quality of life feature.

    How you people can maintain your customers is beyond me...

  • Hi !

    Is there any news concerning this issue ?

    Not having control over the max pressure output is very detrimental.

    I just acquired a Kamvas 24 pro, and It's hampering my ability to use it because of how hard I have to press the stylus to obtain max pressure output.

    Please allow control over the right end of the curve, like you do for the left end with the blue square.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

  • Hi Matthias, thank you for your inquiry. I'm sorry to inform you that only the left end can be controlled or adjusted on our tablet driver's pressure sensitivity (blue indicator) at the moment. I have forwarded your request on the maximum pressure output adjustment to our Technical Department for further improvement. We appreciate your patience and understand in this matter, as we do our best to continue improving our driver.

  • Just adding my endorsement for this feature :)

    Swapped over to a Huion tablet after a decade of Wacom just this morning, and so far this is the only issue i've had. So, well done Huion! I'm glad there's finally some real competition with current monopoly.

    In my case, I find the default (and fixed) maximum pressure to actually be too much. As a painter/illustrator working in pressure sensitive software (in this case photoshop) I'm finding that without the 'maximum pressure point' being adjustable I'm losing a little bit of finesse that is available with the wacom pressure curve settings.

    Specifically, i'm maxing out the pressure quicker than I'd like to be. If I ever need a stroke to be 100% full strength (full pressure) I'm always going to be doing that consistently, so I temporarily toggle off pressure adjustment in photoshop (or any other drawing package). For the sake of trying to make art that is as naturalistic and 'imperfect' as possible when doing it digitally (over 99% of the time), I never actually want the pen pressure to be 'perfectly heavy' but to be ALMOST perfect.

    To put it another way, I don't want the pressure curve to hit the 'flat-spot' of fully on (because this doesn't happen in the real world, with any tool, be it a pencil or a hammer).

    I sincerely hope this is a planned feature. It sounds like I'm complain, but really I'm just trying to describe it as clearly & analy as possible

  • Hi William, thank you for sharing your feedback regarding the maximum pressure setting on our driver. We appreciate your input and are glad that you are using our product. I have forwarded your feedback to our Technical Department, and they will further evaluate the feasibility of implementing this feature. Thank you for choosing HUION! If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
