3D Mouse and camera/view pivot Nov. 10, 2017, 4:55 p.m.

I regularly run multiple instances of Houdini and my 3dConnexion device works flawlessly in each viewport (16.0.750 Win 10).It might be something new that's been introduced with 16.5 or it could be platform related.

Whenever I've had problems with my 3dConnexion device I've done a clean reinstall and it's solved my problem(be sure to properly clean any remnants of the old drivers before reinstalling).

A good place to look is Jarrets Touchdesigner file that has most of the work done in the “Art of Generative Design” translated into Toughdesigner. The methodology of Touch translates a lot better the Processing. []


It is indeed a great set of examples. Although I still find myself ‘vexed’ (see what I did there) by the single threaded nature of the Chops stuff in TD. They haven't done much work on the nodes that trace their family tree back to Houdini since TD split off as a separate product back at Houdini 4.5! And since they've moved to Python (away from the HScript origins) many things are actually slower than they were back in the day.

The real TD power users have moved most of what their doing over to the GPU partnered with bespoke C++ nodes.
