I'm an Animation Mentor student, and I've been trying to figure out how to use my SpaceNavigator nob wheel to scrub through the timeline. basically by trying to map the K+LMB scrubbing shortcut to my Spacenavigator RotateZ axis, as a student myself it would really be beneficial and much more efficent having to scrub through the timeline back and forth with a simple nob rotate.
I have tried using ControllerMate, and the devleoper kindly helped me figure out the settings to use, which are :
So I used it on ControllerMate only to notice that it didn't work out on Maya, perhaps the 3D Connexion SpaceNavigator maya plugin ? I don't know.. but I did disable it, restarted Maya, but it still didn't work. I'd like to note that I can see the mouse moving right and left in other applications, but in Maya it doesn't respond to any movement at all.
I don't have any mel or api experience myself, but I beleive that if this works, it would benefit a lot of peer students and also animators working on the field.
I would appreciate any guidance on how to make this thing work, while still having an option to toggle and use the default SpaceNavigator commands in Maya.
Thanks in advance!
