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 =)

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

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...

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?!
