3Dconnexions Vue Press Release

A press release from 3Dconnexions has appeared on a number of web sites - although strangley as far as I can tell not the 3Dconnexions web site.

3Dconnexion 3D mice bring increased control and design performance to graphics professionals using e-on software’s advanced Vue 7 solutions

3Dconnexion, a Logitech company, has announced that its line of award-winning 3D mice is supported by e-on software’s Vue 7 xStream and Vue 7 Infinite, advanced solutions for creating, animating, rendering and integrating natural 3D environments. 3Dconnexion 3D mice naturally complement the Vue 7 workflow, providing visual effects studios, animators, illustrators, architects, matte painters and computer graphics professionals with a high-end 3D scenery solution that enhances design performance and productivity.

“3Dconnexion’s 3D mice boost Vue 7’s design workflow by allowing graphics professionals to interact with the 3D environments they are creating more naturally and intuitively,” said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. “The result is a design experience with more creative freedom that enables graphic artists to immerse themselves in the creation of incredibly detailed 3D environments.”

3Dconnexion 3D mice provide precise control of multiple camera views in a 3D scene, giving graphic professionals the freedom to explore different angles of a design to capture the ideal camera position. In addition, 3Dconnexion 3D mice offer Vue 7 users a fast and efficient way to control their 3D environment previews and incorporate design modifications into their final scenes.

“Our solutions for natural environments provide breakthrough technologies together with excellent usability,” said Nicholas Phelps, president of e-on software. “3Dconnexion’s 3D mice complement the Vue 7 workflow, providing a 3D scenery creation experience that is even more productive and enjoyable.”

Unlike mice confined to motion on one flat plane, 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice enable Vue 7 users to move in all three dimensions simultaneously, with the ability to pan, zoom and rotate camera views without stopping to select commands. By gently lifting, pressing and turning the controller cap, graphic professionals can intuitively control their 3D design environment, with automatically synchronised camera positions for various view projections to minimise unnecessary camera movement.

3Dconnexion’s advanced and affordable 3D mice are supported by more than 130 of today’s leading and powerful 3D applications. For a complete list of applications supported by 3Dconnexion, visit:
