Bleeped product

Hello Jayce: To be accurate, the product that I mentioned in my post and that was deleted by the moderator, is not a competitor of theirs in any sense. It is simply a jog whee l with 15 or so programmable buttons that work in just about any Mac software scenario. The sad truth is that the 3D product...

Moderator edits

Dear Mr. Moderator: The mention of a named product in my last post was made with the specific intent to provide a verifiable example of a product that works, without flaw, in the Macintosh environment. I have no affiliation with that company and am not in the retail business and, in fact, am a produ...

Programmability?

Hello: I have left numerous derogatory posts on this site regarding the 3D mice (Space Navigator and Explorer) for OSX, so, adding yet another should serve little to further sully my reputation. I have a very difficult time accepting the explanation given vis-a-vis the lack programmablility of the d...

Jog and shuttle

Hi: The best solution for Final Cut is the *************. It has numerous assignable buttons that, unlike the 3D products, are programmable for just about any software you can conjure up, including every 3D animating program that I have tried. ----- Edit (moderator): don't post ads (see BOARD RULES ).

ControllerMate

Hi, I was a bit disappointed also. Though I have bought it for specific 3D-apps I expected it would be configurable for other applications. It is possible if you look at the driver for the *************. With a piece of extra software, you can extend the functionality of the SpaceNavigator tremendo...

3rd party drivers

Hello Mischa: Just thought that you might like to know that I tried "Overdrive" as well as "ControllerMate" and neither one works with the Space Explorer. In the case of Overdrive , the program seems to be blocked by the 3DConnexion driver and I fear that removing the driver would create problems wi...

Buttons, R10.5 vs R 11

Hello: I'm glad that I'm not the only one who noticed this omission of function. Oddly enough, the buttons did function in R 10.5, so, something has changed to remove this function. I did contact Maxon tech support and was told that they could not confirm that the button macros functioned in R 10.5 ...

C4D R 11 and Space Explorer

Hello: I just installed the latest version of C4D (R 11) on an Intel/Mac and was pleased to find that the above device now works for 3D movements, unfortunately however, the new version of the software does not respond to the programmable macros and as a result, the device's buttons are useless. It...

FYI Space Explorer--Mac & Various other software

I have posted before about the lack of function (programmability) for Space Explorer in Poser for Mac. Oddly enough, I have found that it is possible to program macros for the Space Explorer buttons in the Mac versions of Maya and C4D, although, the version of C4d that I currently have installed doe...

RE: referenced post

Hi Fred: Thank you for the link, however, the information merely reinforces the point of my rant, since it was posted in January of 2007, a year and a half ago. Clearly, nothing has been done to increase Mac compatibility and yet, the manufacturer's web site hawks compatibility with words like, "cer...

Space Explorer and Mac OSX

Has anyone noticed that the 3Dconnecion web site indicates that the S Explorer is Mac compatible and goes on to list the programs for which it is "certified." What exactly does "certified" mean to them? In this regard, the S Explorer is no more functional than the S Navigator since none of its extra...
