Simulate touch gesture inputs

Post by Adri »

Hello, first of all congratulate you on your software. I am testing the beta and it is quite intuitive.

Apologize for my poor english. I am using a translator so that you understand me as well as possible.

I am a user with 3DxWire and in blender it behaves great. But in other programs it is impossible to take advantage of all its analog potential.

My intention is to use the axes for navigation in 2D programs, (PAN, ZOOM, ROTATE) but currently I can only achieve this by simulating keyboard and mouse shortcuts. This means that while we are moving we cannot do more actions simultaneously.

And I came up with a possible solution: Simulate touch gesture inputs.

For example PHOTOSHOP or CLIP STUDIO PAINT, are fully compatible with touch inputs to zoom, rotate and move the canvas using 2 fingers.

If CMJ were able to virtualize a touch input device and add typical gestures ... it would be wonderful and certainly more fluid than keyboard shortcuts.

Would it be possible to see this in the future?

Thank you!


Hola, antes que nada felicitaros por vuestro software. Estoy probando la beta y es bastante intuitiva.

Disculparme por mi inglés pobre. Estoy usando un traductor para que me entendáis lo mejor posible.

Soy un usuario con 3DxWire y en blender se comporta genial. Pero en otros programas es imposible aprovechar todo su potencial analogico.

Mi intención es usar los ejes para la navegación en programas 2D, (PAN,ZOOM, ROTATE) pero actualmente sólo puedo conseguirlo simulando atajos de teclado y ratón. Eso provoca que mientras estemos moviendonos no pueda hacer más acciones simultaneamente.

Y se me ocurrió una posible solución: Simular inputs de gestos táctiles.

Por ejemplo PHOTOSHOP o CLIP STUDIO PAINT, son totalmente compatible con entradas táctiles para hacer zoom, rotar y mover el lienzo usando 2 dedos.

Si CMJ fuera capaz de virtualizar un dispositivo de entrada táctil y sumilar los gestos típicos... sería maravilloso y seguro que más fluido que los atajos de teclado.

Sería posible ver esto en el futuro?

Hi Adri,

This is an interesting suggestion for using a touch emulation, and we have had quite a few inquiries about how to use a spacemouse across more apps that don't support it. Not sure if this will be possible, but you never know.
