    Multi Touch

    GO50P
      Hello,
      I am looking to make a director file for a kiosk that allows two finger touch. How can I get director to understand two input or actions simulatneously? Like stretch a picture on the iPhone....

            Hi,

            I just asked an Adobe engineer about Director and its multi-touch ability. In its
            current form, Director is unable to detect multiple events simultaneously.

            regards

              Seems to me I read somewhere that the issue is really operating system related as well. I don't think Windows is natively capable of handling more than one mouse event. I had looked into that a while back. The larger issue is with the touchscreens themselves and their ability to accept multitouch. I have not been able to find a manufacturer which makes a multitouch monitor.

              I'd love to know if anyone has found one though! Did I read that Apple was patenting multi-touch ... or trying to?

                Thought you might be interested in some of the new products Demand Evolution has come out with.

                 

                There is a 30" multitouch LCD which supports input from everything from paint brushes, to touch less gestures.

                There is also a 50" developers kit for projection systems. you can check them both out in this youtube or at the

                website www.demandevolution.com
