  • More than 1GHz CPU is recommended when anti-alias indication is used.
  • The physical memory used by openCanvas is dependent on picture size or number of layers. The bigger pictures and the more layers there are, the more memories are needed. Differences arise by which OS is used. The more data is needed, the higher speed of CPU is needed as the same as memory.
  • Depending on a video card, color depth other than 32 bits might cause an extreme speed fall on a display. Color depth with 32 bits color is recommended.
  • A pen pressure function cannot be used with a mouse.
  • System operation capabilities with the LCD tablet (Cintiq、XPC-1700B) and the tablet PC have been checked, however we do not guarantee the compatibility.
