Author Topic: 3Dconnexion Space Mouse Pro not working !  (Read 2274 times)

hello,

I thought, 3D Mouse support was implemented in Painter some time ago.. today I got a 3D mouse (3Dconnexion Space mouse pro) for testing... unfortunatly, 3D viewport in Sp can only be zoomed in/out, but no rotate, pan or tilt :(

Is this feature missing in SP or do I have to activate it somehow???

Cheers

Unfortunately, no, 3D mice are not supported yet.

Wooot? how can this be?!
there is an API on the connexion website, can not be too hard...

Even chrome browser and outlook supporting it ;)

I hope you get this is quick, I can not believe it is not working :(

Very disappointing... the 1st time since I bought into Allegorithmic software (a few year ago, now)

It is not that simple. As far as I remember, the last time we checked their API was only available for Windows, so we could not use it and had to write a lower level API ourselves. It's not an impossible task, but we have had other priorities.

There are drivers for OSX and linux - but API is Windows only? hmmm, this is strange, I agree.
But implementing the windwos API would be a good start, I think :)

I really like the way allegorithmic products are and support is the best, I´ve ever experienced... this is, why I am so baffled about not beeing able to use another fantastic tool - the 3D mouse.


this feature is the 2nd most wanted in SP (but still 1 year old request)...

All Voting-points spend - let´s hope for the best.

This is so confusing because it states here;

"Imaging and Viewport Updates: Full screen mode, 3D mouse support, and improved image quality have all been added"

^ Was that a false claim then?

Can we at least get support on Windows? or is it an all for one, one for all scenario.

Once you start using a 3D mouse trying to work without it is like having an arm tied behind your back.
