3d yeah!Not much fun navigating in max with one though, I installed some thing that makes it like Maya (which is what I use in xsi - confusing?)

I fancied upgrading from my intuous 2, but then remembered the cost, get an older one!
Sorry derailing thread here..

point is, logitech has some mac software.. setpoint or something.. but i wonder if a logitech mouse, even with software, works the same on mac as it does on windows.. trying to figger out if it s worth buying a new 100e mouse just for this..

as i seen in mac settings, with its original bluetooth mouse (than sux!), acceleration and mouse speed are integrated in only 1 slider.. oO.. i hate acceleration and cant get rid of it this way..

Yes I'm confused Reeves. You're saying there's some thing that makes plugin or something that makes Max more Wacom friendly? If so, what is it?

Gladdddd you got that sorted vladddd!

its a big hack - runs some kind of key mapping thing I think, works though! You loose the other normal uses of alt though - but as I can't remember shortcuts in max that's fine by me. I just get around by asigning new ones that are like xsi, and remembering where all the buttons are

Looks interesting, thanks! I like the idea of universal viewport navigation and this is one thing that often puts me off learning new software.

I've got my Logitech trackball mouse working fine with osx lion, using the same Logitech mouse and keyboard + unifying wireless software as I use on my PC, works good, though I doubt i'll ever truly get used to the feel of mac's pointer. (I'm running osx 10.7 on my PC, as a hackingtosh in case that makes any difference)

trouble is that i had logitech mice for 10 years now.. for as long as i had windows xp acutaly (untill 2 months ago :D).. and it ran rly smooth. i managed the acceleration situation, but still, the pointer doesnt run as smooth as it should, or as it does in windows.. its like i got a rly unsteady hand.. and its rly anoying..

Give USB Overdrive X a try. I'm not sure if it's still being upgraded, but it worked great for my Logitech Mx 5500 mouse on Snow Leopard (my Mac died on me so I don't know how it runs on Lion).

I haven't used it, but SteerMouse looks like a good alternative.
