Light table

I used an LED LightPad made by Artograph. It was great since the LED light is bright, clean and constant all over the whole work surface. Also it’s fairly thin which is nice if, while animating, you want to lean your arm on the surface the light table is on.

However I encountered the two following issues:


  1. Light got progressively brither over the course of an hour. It’s therefore recommended to leave it on between 30 minutes and 1 hour before animating.
  2. It stopped working after 6 months. I assume it’s either because salt got in the machine or that it was on a lot. 

Conclusion: The table is great but it can get a bit expensive to replace it every six months. © Philippe Vaucher 2013
