3ds mac 2022 support - When?

Post by Stefan50 » Fri May 07, 2021 1:47 am

3ds max 2022 has been out a long time now, and still no support for it in the drivers?
When can I expect a new version that supports Autodesk 3ds max 2022 for my SpaceMouse Pro?

We have been shipping an add-in for pre-release builds of 3ds Max v. 2022 since December.

Thanks for the reply!
I don´t understand that you have done that, because the info on your download page is the same as the old one:
Version 10.7.2
Release date 2021/03/18
And nothing in the Release notes (PDF) text that says it will support 2022 and when I try to install it, it still say up to 2021 so where can I find this pre-release builds?

The "pre-release" builds mentioned above were of 3ds Max version 2022, not our drivers. We have had an add-in for 2022 since driver v. 10.7.1, published in December.

The add-in for 2022 was provided before Autodesk's public announcement and we have a non-disclosure agreement in effect until such time. Because of that, it's always a good idea to check whatever is the latest driver version even if there are no explicit references in the release notes.

The latest drivers can be downloaded from here.

Okay, I downloaded the driver 10.7.2 again, same deal. 3ds max support according to the installer is only v2014-v2021 (Max Driver version v7.0.7.18073)
So I can´t even select 3ds max 2022.
I also contacted your support via mail, and someone there gave me a link to download MAC drivers to my Windows 10 system?
Come on, why is it taking so long time for a proper driver to be released?
Not MAC, but WINDOWS with support for 3ds max 2022, where you can select 2022 in the installer.
Right now, if I chose 2021, the installer looks/ask for my 2021 install that doesn´t exsist due I don´t have 2021 installed.

As mentioned, we have been shipping an add-in for 3ds Max version 2022 since December. And again, there are no references to version 2022 due to our agreement with Autodesk of not referring to unannounced software.

I don't know why you were given software for the Mac. We have an add-in for Maya 2022 for macOS about to be published. Perhaps there was some confusion since both are Autodesk products and share the same version.

How did you "chose 2021"? There's only one option to install the 3ds Max add-in, regardless of version.

One of us had a look earlier today and the plug-in included in driver v. 10.7.2 (compiled against a pre-release SDK for 3ds Max 2022) works as expected with the new application version.
