Using the latest 10.7.1 drivers, I'm getting terrible performance in Unreal 4.26.1. It's incredibly laggy.

The opensource Github drivers were at one point much more useable than 3DC's official drivers. Anyone else?

We had a look at 4.26.1. Seems fine.

Does the problem persist? I think the first time the Editor is loaded after an update, it needs to pre-compile some data (shaders?). I may be remembering it incorrectly but in our test set-up, all seems well.

I can confirm that the latest 10.7.1 driver works awesome with UE4 4.26.1

** Hopefully you'll add support to move around Blueprints in a similar way as Orthographic views. :D

Hello,

I did already have the 3dxware installed. Here is how I installed the unreal plugin and got it working:

Here is what I did:

1. Reboot machine
2. Uninstall 3dxware
3. Reboot machine
4. Re-install all components of 3dxware and delete user settings
5. Reboot machine
6. Make sure the driver installed. some processes will clash with 3dxware
7. Reboot machine
8. Go back into Unreal 4.24.x and go to Edit -> Plugins (very bottom)
9. Under the Installed tab, verify 3d Connexion is installed as a plugin

I can now pan and zoom and rotate and translate my view in Unreal editor.

I would also like to second the sentiment of panning and zooming in the blueprint editor feature: that would be great.
I have not tried unreal version 4.26.X, but I have to stick with 4.24.x for other plugin dependencies I cannot control.
Hopefully their plugin will get updated in the future.

If you're not satisfied with the 3DConnexion default plugin, you can give my plugin a try https://github.com/microdee/UE4-SpaceMouse, it's free from github and I have test versions over there too, but if you want automatic installation then you can buy it on the marketplace as well (now it's on 50% sale too, I don't remember for how long)
