Hey guys, This is a question I asked on another thread.
I too have a leap motion on the mac and have done since the kickstarter all those years ago. The SDK is a little older but after speaking with the UltraLeap team about this I have confidence that it may be possible to add support for mac users at least with the majority of functionality. Looking at the test app you can see how well the Leap functions on the mac. I understand that the target audience is PC but I'm sure there are quite a few mac users out there who'd benefit and have paid for this software and have seen the hand options sitting there since V4 was launched. I know I sound like a cracked record but years of working in support has made me more annoyed that this has actually happened and no thought or plans have been put in place for those disappointed customers.
I'm sorry but the above line about the leap hardware not being supported on mac is a little misleading. V2 of the SDK is still available on mac and is still functional if time and care had been taken to investigate further. I can't comment on other devices only the Leap. I may just send that line to ultraleap for comment.
I totally understand it may not be quite as straight forward and may not be cost effective at a financial level. I'd like to know if there have been any technical investigations on mac or an instant dismissal?
Reallusion should have said from day 1 that the product license will work on a Mac and PC so you can take advantage of these new features if you have a PC at hand. Not an ideal solution at all but at least something. Plan B would be to re-investigate leap mac support and talk to the really nice Ultra Leap team who I'm sure will benefit from such support from Reallusion mac products. Makes sense in my head but then I've only worked in this industry for may years.. What do I know
Fingers crossed we get an announcement from Reallusion soon about this.
As I said on another comment it's such a shame as the Devs have put so much effort and time into this feature and it's really impressive and a game changer I think. The leap is an affordable product (at least was) and is a solution for hand gestures. Plus in future it could be used for more puppetting. So to end I want to say thanks to the Developers for creating and working on 4.2
