Speed Up iClone 3D Animation with 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse

iClone simplifies the world of 3D Animation with a user-friendly production environment that blends character animation, scene design and cinematic storytelling; quickly turning imagination into a reality. Seamlessly connecting to industry-leading SpaceMouse® from 3Dconnexion, animation creation in iClone becomes even more unleashed and efficient with the most handy and immersive navigation in the 3D world!

FREELY MAP SPACEMOUSE TO ICLONE FUNCTIONS

With the 3Dconnexion driver, over 700 iClone features can be custom mapped to SpaceMouse®.
Thanks to iClone's unique context sensitive design, when a user is focusing on the timeline, SpaceMouse® turns into a jog dial for fast frame search, track scroller, or zoom in/out.
Additionally, to make iClone more user-driven, almost all iClone functions can be customized to map user-defined hotkeys, especially Windows compatible devices.
Users can freely download three SpaceMouse® hotkey presets to work with different design purposes: Animation Editing, Object Transformation, and Light Arrangement.

- Loïc Bramoullé, Art & Film Director | France
