I'm SO torn regarding Clip Studio and desperately need opinions
(Note: re-posting this from /ArtistLounge to broaden the possible responses)
I've been practicing personal manga/comic art stories on a bootlegged Paint Tool Sai version for about a year or two now, and I enjoy the program I guess. And then I learned about Clip Studio Ex. Watched the tutorials and felt like I found my soulmate software, I was SO excited. Clip Studio Ex was EVERYTHING I've ever wanted in an art program.
I tried the trial about three months ago and tried to get it to run properly over the course of a month and literally spent 90-95% of the trial period troubleshooting the program to just WORK in general than I did doing any actual art work...and this is coming from a guy with an IT background. The biggest, most egregious issue I ran into IMMEDIATELY was a constant 'Offline can't connect to the internet' error despite me doing everything under the sun to correct it (also I'm Ethernet connected). I reinstalled three times and even posted on their support forum and received zero help. When I did somehow finally fix it, I ran into a new bag of issues like the program crashing when I would go to create new work, or previous practice sketch files would hang and freeze before fully opening, etc..
I WANT to use this program SO bad but I'm afraid to take the risk and buy the full 'Ex' version. When I google info on Clip Studio, it seems like a 50/50 bag of it working seamlessly for some, or not at all for others due to various issues. I'm currently running a Windows 10 64bit, Intel Core i7 desktop with a 500GB solid state/ 930GB physical HD combo and a GeForce GTX 1080 card...so it's def not hardware.
I guess the point of this post is...I'm asking for outside thoughts or advice from outside artists. Should I buy the full (legit) version of Paint Tool Sai? Or bite the bullet, take a chance, and see if buying the full Ex version months later now may offer a better experience? Clip Studio looks and feels amazing for what I want to do...I just wish it would work, and there doesn't seem to be any justifiable or discernible reason why it won't half the time. Thanks for any advice or suggestions!
