Photoshop CC: Non fluid canvas rotation (only with Wacom gestures)

When i use the 2 fingers gesture of my wacom tablet in photoshop to rotate and pan, the process is really not fluid
But when i use the rotate tool of photoshop, this one is fast and fluid.

Why such a difference?

I work on photoshop CC, windows 8.1, intuos pro multitouch
I have one of the latest i7 processor, 16 go of ram and a nvidia gtx 760, working on a little image (no crazy HD)
Everything is by default in photoshop

Thank you in advance =)

I Witnessed this same behaviour on some kind of a demo on a youtube video, so i cannot be an isolated case ^^

This is because they're controlling it by using a keyboard shortcut to rotate and zoom in fixed increments.

Oh thank you for your reply Jeffrey!
Do you know any way to keep this gesture but have the effect of the fluid rotation one ?

Go to 32:00 in this video. We're enabling gestures and other good stuff on win 8 in an upcoming update: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/p...

So, what is shown in this video cannot be achieved with a wacom touch tablet, only with a surface pro3?

Which touch tablet specifically?

A touch capable monitor or a Cintiq should get the smooth interaction.

Intuos pro touch: http://www.wacom.com/en-gb/products/p...

Why would it not work with these? Is it a problem on wacom's end?

Would it work with the cintiq companion2?

One more silly question: would a common trackpad activate this smooth interaction? Or any third party pad of some sort?

I know the trackpad on a Mac Pro does, and the screen on a Surface pro works with the smooth gestures.

I am in photoshop now, with my wacom intuos touch tablet + windows 8.1, and i don't get the same gestures/behaviours as in the video. For example the 2 fingers double tap does not take me back to home zoom :S. What do i miss?

Is there a possibility that this feature only works with the touch system of the surface pro, and not with the touch surface of the wacom tablet, as if these were 2 completely different systems?

Latest post to react to:
Answer from Wacom:
The Wacom driver supports several methods of touch handling. On Windows8.x it supports the standard 2 finger multitouch gestures for scrolling/panning/zooming. This requires a touchscreen device as primary display. If you have tablet with touchscreen like a Cintiq, the driver allows to select 'use Windows gestures' or 'use Wacom gestures'.

If you have touch device without screen like an Intuos, there are no 'Windows gestures' for that. In this case multitouch handling depends on the application. Some programs like Corel Painter have multitouch support build-in and use Wacoms recommended TouchAPI. (You may have to activate the multitouch support within the application.) If an application does not support multitouch, we use the method of sending suitable keystrokes or system events to the program.

When you are using Win8.x standard touch handling method, make sure to turn off 'penflicks' and 'press and hold to rightclick' as these functions are causing input delays.

So if it works in Corel Painter, i guess it could work in Photoshop?!
