Jing Recording
show user profile  mrgrotey
Hi guys, I very rarely use max nowadays but I just did a Jing video to help someone out and whilst recording it stops me being able to orbit around my model, and dragging primitives only allows you to drag in snap mode . see the problems in the video below

Any ideas on whats going on?

Are you aware that you have snaps enabled? Also the hot-key override toggle is on, maybe that has something to do with it too?

Have you set up some odd key-combo to start recording jings?

Oh, and hello, stranger.

Well I'm stupid it was simply the snaps option, I was sure it only happened when it was recording. but evidently not.

That's fine now however orbit still does not work as soon as Jing starts recording. As soon as it stops recording orbit works again :) and its not due to the keyboard override toggle.

Have you set "Alt" and something to be a key combo in Jing? It might make 3ds Max ignore your Alt presses if you've got Jing running and it's keeping an eye out for Alt + combos.

I just tried and it worked fine for me (max 2012). No idea what it could be.

There don't appear to be any keyboard commands you can set in Jing. Other than 'capture' and that isn't set. Its very odd.

I've now opened support ticket on the techsmith website.

Well tech smith tech support came up trumps, running max and Jing using the 'run as administrator' allows the orbit function work again. Awkward in windows 10 but doable.

It breaks some plugins, I don't know what causes it exactly, but I couldn't even install a bunch when I was running as admin, you also lose the functionality to drag and drop files into the viewport to open them. At-least that's the case with Win 10. There was something else as well, but I forget.
