3Dconnexion Mouse Support In Ca X8

Recommended Posts

Can any of the beta testers or CA staff verify that the 3Dconnexion mouse will also function as a navigation device in a plan view?  The YouTube Sneek Peek video only shows it being used for navigating a camera view.

I think it will work, it should... it's working right now with x7 but only zoom-in and zoom-out functions but not the orbit function. In the X8 video they have orbit function working in camera view, I would assume it should work in both (plan and camera)  I checked 3Dconnexion page if they added  compatibility notice for CA but not yet, I think after they do a driver update it will work with X7 as well.

Been using one for just a few days now.   I dont think (without specific permission) any of the beta testers can disclose any details.  Chief would have to answer.

 

It will be a little bit of a leaning curve using it I feel.   I find it is not full automatic at this point, but I have only played with it a little.   I also tend to do most of my work in 2d (coming up from older versions of the software).   I can see how manipulating in 3d views will be FAR FAR superior once it becomes second nature.   I think it will be one of those things that I cant live without once I get used to it.
