issue with Mac, Maya, and Middle Mouse click
at work i was put infront of a mac with maya and told to do stuff as a break from typing and researching code (and i like it when things work... so maya compared to coding is tranquility)
and when testing out the controls of mac maya i found the most disturbing thing ever...
the middle mouse button doesn't work the way it should... whenever i click it the scene begins to dolly in discrete steps, regardless of what key i hold down on the keyboard
this means i can't track, adjust values, or assign materials using the middle mouse button
i suppose adjusting values in the channel box or assigning materials is still fast (ish) to do the other ways, but the lack of tracking is quite difficult to deal without
(i made a keyboard short cut to bring up the tool, but it's still rather annoying to have to change tools when you just need to use one)
i assume this isn't normal and there might be an issue somewhere that is resolvable?
also (this is just a ramble, not a complaint or anything...) i've totally forgotten what hotkeys i've set myself! :p
i would start pushing certain key combinations only to find that the command isn't even assigned to that hotkey
the only combinations i remember setting is ctrl+1 to do a render preview, and ctrl+alt+h to bring up the hypergraph
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
