Photoshop C4D now supports 3D mice

3Dconnexion’s SpaceNavigator Line and other 3D input devices are now supported by Adobe’s Photoshop CS4.


3Dconnexion has announced that their award-winning line of 3D mice (such as the SpaceNavigator, see Architosh review here) are now supported by Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS4 Extended edition. 

Now users can utilize 3Dconnexion input devices to control both 2D and 3D aspects of Photshop CS4. New to Photoshop CS4 Extended, designers no longer have to explicitly switch to a 3D environment when editing, but can set a 3D layer as active to enable 3D mode. In addition, 3Dconnexion 3D mice automatically detect whether a layer is 2D or 3D and provide the appropriate navigation style for that environment.

3Dconnexion’s 3D mice allow users to move in all three directions (x,y,z coordinates) simultaneously, using six-degrees of freedom sensor technology. The new compatibility with 3D mice and CS4 include both Windows and Mac platform editions of the Adobe software and include the following models:

  • SpaceNavigator Personal Edition
  • SpaceNavigator Standard Edition
  • SpaceNavigator for Notebooks
  • SpaceExplorer and…
  • SpacePilot
Devices start at 59.USD and range up to 399.USD. To learn more visit them online at:
