Win7 multitouch support?

August 18, 2010 | 2:57 pm

I was wondering if someone knew when Max will have
native support for Win7 multitouch. There are some
nice multitouch pcs out now that I would like to
use but Max does not understand multitouch.

Can anyone from cycling give me some insight…

am very curious about this too. I found:

which has this in it:

"Multitouch functionality in Windows 7 will not be available to devices that are not identified as HID digitizers. As defined in the USB HID Usage Tables specification, this identification consists of the digitizer page (0x0D), along with usage ID 0×04 to specify the Collection Application for touch-screens."

so… C74, would the [hi] object do the trick? or need revamping? multitouch would be ever so awesome to use for Max. I suppose that’s pretty obvious though…
