Mudbox 2016 on Mac OSX El Capitan (not responding)

Post by TangibleDay » Wed Jan 06, 2016 8:09 pm

Hi All:

Need some help. I just installed the most recent drivers for the Spacenavigator. It works great in Maya 2016, but I'm getting no response from the mouse when using Mudbox 2016. I've already tried to adjust the sensitivity/speed and all that in the 3D Connexion properties under the "view cube", but the space navigator mouse still won't respond to input.

The official website says that Mudbox is supported, so I'm a bit confused.

Is there a way to manually activate or fix this issue with the mouse working for Mudbox?

Thanks!

I can confirm this.

I tried today mudbox 2016 and 2017 with 3DxWareMac_v10-4-0_r2383, 3DxWareMac_v10-3-1_r2250 and 3DxWareMac_v10-2-5_r2142 drivers and none of the works. I am using OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 (15G31).

The best working driver version currently is 10.2.5. In newer driver versions the "rotation center feature" is not working in maya and that really sucks.

According 3Dconnexion website the mudbox is not supported(anymore)?!?!
I have a memory about using mudbox with spacemouse last winter but I am not 100%. I may be thinking about 3D coat which works perfectly after you fix the settings from 3D connexion prefernces pane.

in Mudbox there is settings for 3dconnexion but they don't have any affect.

It seems that something has changed since 2012 when 3D connexion announce that mudbox is supported...

I find these problems quite odd actually. Somehow it seems there is lots of problems lately between autodesk and 3d connexion.
3D coat and Rhino 3D works really well.

Mudbox 2016 or 2017 is not working with driver 10.4.1

Hi all,

I am afraid the support for the 3D mouse has not been implemented in the OS X version of Mudbox. Please verify with Autodesk. We need to review our list of supported applications as well.

We need to get this back again.. 2018.2 is amazing and Autodesk is now actively starting to ramp up coding on this.. product again.
