Gamepad Navigator

by Sam Aldhaher in Scripts and Addons

Ever wanted to use a gaming controller in Blender? Now you can! Gamepad Navigator allows you to instantly use any gaming controller* to navigate around your Blender scene, select objects, control and setup cool camera shots, record camera location and rotation keyframes. Simply connect your controller, wired or wireless, no drivers or external software required**.

Includes gamepad screen-cast feature, useful to show what buttons are being pressed in real-time.

Gamepad Navigator is designed to be a lightweight and CPU-efficient addon. CPU utilization depends on controller usage and is significantly reduced when no buttons are pressed.
