3Dconnexion 3D Mice Help Digital Artists Advance Designs in Autodesk Maya 2011, SoftImage 2011 and Adobe Photoshop CS5
Support for the Latest Applications Delivers Precise and Continuous Visual Control of 3D Models
Fremont, Calif. â€“ July 26, 2010 â€“ 3Dconnexionâ€™s full line of 3D mice is supported by three new media and entertainment applications â€“ AutodeskÂ® MayaÂ® 2011 and SoftImageÂ® 2011, and AdobeÂ® PhotoshopÂ® CS5, bringing advanced 3D navigation and control to a range of digital artists and designers. 3Dconnexion 3D mice allow creative professionals to visualize and interact with their character animations, scenes and environments as if they were holding models in their hand or flying through the 3D environment, providing a more immersive and rewarding design experience.
3Dconnexion 3D mice allow digital artists to control camera views or navigate around scenes while simultaneously selecting, creating and editing a design. Whether tumbling, tracking and dollying in one fluid motion in Maya 2011, controlling brush size in CS5, or navigating a character rig creation in SoftImage, 3D mice provide a level of control that is unattainable with a traditional mouse and keyboard. Additional benefits include:
o Superior Navigation: Allows artists to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate as if they are holding the model or camera in their hand
o Precise Control: Capable of detecting input as small as four micrometers, giving a level of control that is unattainable with a traditional mouse
o Improved Efficiency: Programmable buttons provide quick access to commonly used application commands, enabling users to better focus on their models
o Increased Performance: Enables increased focus on characters, visual effects and models to aid in the detection of critical issues earlier in the design process, reducing change cycles and cost
The entire 3Dconnexion product line is compatible with these applications, including the Professional Series with the SpacePilot PRO (MSRP $399) and SpaceExplorerâ„¢ (MSRP $299), and the Standard Series with the SpaceNavigator (MSRP $99) and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks (MSRP $129).
3Dconnexion will be demonstrating 3D mice capabilities in these new applications in Booth 1147 at SIGGRAPH 2010 in Los Angeles, Calif., July 27 â€“29.
