Access SpaceNavigator Values from python?

Is there a method to access SpaceNavigator (NDOF) values from Python? Support in the 3D view port seems to work pretty well in Blender 2.63a (needs shift for pan sideways) - however we want to use it as a manipulator for setting joint rotations. Should be able to do 3 at a time, great for animating ...

(why not [Ctrl] + S like the rest of the world?)

Although Blender has originated from other OS's, this is a valid point. Users come to a program with expectations - like when they use hotkeys it does something. Now when I press Ctrl + S in Blender, it does prompt me to save, so why does it not just save the file rather than prompting? This is one ...

Framerate / Timing

Hi, I am having problems with the framerate in Blender when animating. We have a simple rig of a character I am animating with at 10FPS in Blender with scripts that run on the redraw. If I play animations back, Blender at about 80% of the framerate. I have done a number of tests with Blender to see ...

Delete "Sound Block"

Hi,

I want to remove unused sound blocks that I have loaded into the Buttons Window - Scene Context->Sound Blocks

Can anyone tell me if this is possible or not because I wish to remove all files I am not using as audio in the sequences window.

Thanks

Glen

Pose Library - Linking from another "Library" .ble

Hi, I am working on setting up a set of library files to go with a character we have rigged in Blender and am investigating the "Pose Library" feature that was added in Blender 2.46 I can create poses and use them in the same file, but when I try to link (Link not Append) to the "PoseLib" Action fro...

Game Engine vs Blender

Hi, Noticed you are doing a similar thing to what we want. Do you receive a lot of data through the socket? We want to animate a robot with data for each of it's armature / bone positions in real time with socket data, but it is slow and Blender "locks up". Do you use the Game Engine to do this? I t...

Re: Server TCP Python

Hi, Does your socket even connect??? Have you tried a simple server + client program to test it - there is one here if not: http://www.python.org/doc/2.2.3/lib/socket-example.html If your socket connects and you get "Thread ready" - compiling your code on my machine gets this far, you may be sufferi...
