TabletMAX for Silo and 3D Studio MAX

See this thread on the Silo forums:

TabletMAX is navigation control replacement for tablet users of Silo and 3dsmax. The controls are a derivation of 3dsmax's navigation controls that eliminates the necessity of a third mouse button. For Silo, the controls have also been enhanced to resemble more closely the fluidity of navigation from within 3dsmax.

Known issues in 3dsmax:
  • A hotkey cannot be assigned to alt-a. It will interfere with the script.
    Alt-lmb + shift will not switch to pan on alt-up. To switch from roll to pan release alt completely before pressing shift down.
    The Alt-LMB hotkey interferes with 3dsmax's "shift" constraint when drawing splines. Use Ctrl-Shift instead.
    Shift-LMB on the gizmo interferes with TabletMAX and cannot create a clone. Use Ctrl-Shift instead.

Known issues in Silo:
  • There is a slight delay when changing hotkeys from alt-down to panning using shift.
    Due to limitations while in toggled tweak mode, multiple component selections cannot be moved when dragging in arbitrary space. Instead, move your selection by using the yellow transform diamond.
    While in toggled tweak mode the gizmo cannot be hidden when components are selected.

For TabletMAX to function correctly within Silo please reconfigure your mouse and keyboard shortcuts accordingly:
  • Middle: Pan View
    Alt+Middle: Rotate View
    Ctrl+Alt+Middle: Zoom View
    Alt+Shift+Left: Select Visible Subtract
    Shift+Right: Tweak

The new controls are:

3D Studio MAX:
Roll - Alt-LMB
Pan - Shift-LMB
Dolly - Ctrl-Alt-LMB
Clone - Ctrl-Shift-LMB
Deselect - A-LMB

Roll - Alt-LMB
Pan - Shift-LMB
Dolly - Ctrl-Alt-LMB
Deselect - A-LMB
T: Toggle Tweak-Mode

Somehow I accidentally left out the entire portion of code that makes this script function in 3dsmax. Oops!

If you're having problems getting it to work this is probably the cause. I've uploaded a new binary and script. Use the links in my first post.
