They help a lot. It just takes a long time to get used to them.

I don't use mine much, but it is pretty damn useful at times.

Fun for Iscribble. Animation is a meh.

I can't animate at all without a tablet. It means a lot for animation for me.

I don't use one, but I know it'd be pretty useful if I did.

I think tablets are overrated.

It depends on the animator. If one can animate with a mouse fine, a tablet wouldn't really improve his skill level. He is still the SAME mouse animator, the process of animation is just a little sped up because its easier.

You can do things twice as better at half of the time with a tablet. Drawing with a mouse just feels dumb. With a tablet actually drawing 70 frames of a guy doing a punch doesn't feels as tedious.
