What would be the next mouse I buy? Would it be a brown, furry animal that squeaks when you lift it up by the tail? No. Would it be an optical, wireless mouse? No. Would it be a wireless mouse with an old-fashioned ball? Yes!

This is because your old-fashioned mouse with a removable ball is perfect as a remote control while animating! Place the pointer over the “capture” button, remove the ball and it will stay exactly in place! This way, you have the mouse right next to your set, you adjust the minifig or whatever you’re working with and hit the button without having to do a 180 degree turn, and without even having to reach out!

I know software like SMP supports remote controls, but I haven’t really looked into the details. Has anyone experimented with those?

Stefan, desperately trying to turn this topic into something useful.

WOW!!! WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT!

Probably because I didn’t try… :) That is genious. I’m gonna try that. OOH how I scream when I think of the many times I moved the mouse back over the capture button and bumped the set, or the light, or the cam, or the figs! AGH.

Why didn’t you tell us this before? Thanks Stefan!

wireless mice have been on the market for about 6 years now…..

you just didnt know about them because they werent considered mainstream or they just didnt seem to have a use for them…….

we have a three button maximus hardware ball mouse that was made around 97-98.
my dad just recently got a logitech pro duo suite(ughghhghuhuhuhuhuhu……me want….)
i just got a corded one cause i dont have the money for something like that

Quite frankly, I don’t know where I would want to take this mouse, it’s staying on this mouse pad and that’s that. And as for the aesthetic quality, I don’t spend much time staring at it. I should like to think.

I didn’t know about the wireless…
But i would imagine that they would be fairly poor, and only recently they got the refresh rate of the mice up to scratch.

heheh, i got a Optical mouse :mischief

A wireless keyboard is good, you can put it in your lap and stuff if you have a big chair. My bro got a wireless keyboard and mouse set and the mouse is a ball mouse and its quite heavy too :cry: , its got batteries in it thats why..

Ok this is pointless aint it, this isn’t a review board :lol:

I am thinking about getting an optical mouse for drawing and coloring with perfect outlines. Is it better to get an optical mouse or that digital drawing pad, that people use for perfecting outlines for digital images, such as various flash cartoons?

I think it would be much easier with a drawing pad. Mice tend to be difficult to Manoever and well..
Flash makes drawing with mice much easier because of the tools they give that allow you to edit (adjust) your line after you drew it.

Im not too sure about the pad, i havent used one before, i wouldnt know. But i would IMAGINE that they are better.
