Yeah, and I think that to encourage old time Blender users to start using max/maya they should have the trackball as the default…
If first time users (old users of max/maya/whatever) expects Blender to behave like their old program, they should select that right in the splash screen. It’s the first thing they will be presented to when they start up Blender. Or maybe we should just have the max settings as the default? Else, what’s next? right mouse selecting?
If it is too difficult for the new user to select that in the splash screen, I honestly can’t imagine how that person even managed to get into 3d in the first place.
Blender is for blender users. Ton have said so over and over again. Else, why not just go all the way and clone the interface of program X entirely.
