Boost your creativity with Maya
Imagine being able to tumble/track/dolly in one fluid motion, without shuffling between the mouse and keyboard. With a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse, you can control the camera or navigate around scenes, while you select, create and edit with the traditional mouse or tablet!
Autodesk® Maya® users can now experience 3Dconnexion's intelligent 3D navigation - the ultimate level of control for game developers, visual effects artists and graphic designers.
Intelligent 3D Navigation
Whether working with larger models or focusing on intricate details, the 3D mouse automatically follows your point of interest to continuously determine the optimal center of rotation. In addition, the center of rotation is visualized (optional) giving a reference point as you position the model. It feels natural so you stay focused
Tools and functions at your fingertips
Map any Maya function, tool, hotbox or marking menu to the 3D mouse Intelligent Function Keys so you don’t need to move your hand to the keyboard or use the traditional mouse to select menu items.
Multitask in multiple windows
A 3D mouse gives you greater control for tasks requiring two or more windows, such as editing in an orthographic view while you navigate and inspect your design in a perspective window.
Animate from every angle
Perfecting your shot so that it looks great from every angle can take forever. With a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse, you can check it from every angle, while editing with your mouse. Your mouse hand adjusts while your other hand instantly delivers the perfect view with the 3D mouse.
Get inside the scene
3Dconnexion’s “application within your application” provides you with the ability to easily switch between camera and Scene Movement, Setting Center of Rotation, Enabling Auto Key Animation and other features. For example, create an animation with the navigation device by creating a camera, selecting Enable Auto Key Animation on the 3Dconnexion panel, and move the scene and object. You can playback your animation with the touch of a button.
Why Maya users rely on 3Dconnexion 3D mice
- Increase Productivity by more than 20%*1: When working with one hand, you can either navigate your model or select commands. With a 3D mouse you can do both at once saving you valuable time.
- Enhanced Comfort: Up to 50% fewer mouse clicks*2 by spreading the workload across both hands.
- Design Performance*1: Whether you’re working on a sketch or a complex 3D model, the superior navigation experience encourages levels of model exploration that lead to higher quality visual effects.
