Space mouse in Agisoft Metashape
« on: October 14, 2021, 07:04:35 PM »
I just received my 3DConnexion space mouse, and it works well in many applications, like 3DConnexion Viewer, Cloud Compare, Solidworks, Blender, MeshMixer, etc. However, it didn't work well with Metashape. It did work, but not the way you expected. I've searched the forum, but related topics are at least a few months old. Does anyone have any good solutions?

By the way, I am using Agisoft Metashape Professional 1.7.3, and 3Dconnexion Spacemouse Compact.

Thanks.

Hello eric423,

Such device should work out-of-the-box in Metashape:
- connect device via USB,
- start Metashape,
- enable HID-compliant controller option in Navigation Preferences tab, click Apply button,
- select SpaceMouse option in the Controller section,
- click OK and use 3D controller in the Model view.

You can also update to Metashape 1.7.5 before trying these steps.
Best regards,

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your reply.

The mouse did work, the problem is the behavior, if you try it in other 3D model viewers, you'll understand what I meant.

For example, when I 'spin' the mouse, I expect the model to 'spin', but the model 'rolls' in Metashape.

If other 3D model viewers all behave differently, I won't complain about this. The problem is, all other software have the similar behavior.

Regards,
Bo
