Sure, any device that generates MIDI controller messages will work.  These
days, there are quite a few such devices, many of them relatively inexpensive.
Most synthesizers and keyboard MIDI controllers have at least one slider.

For example, MIDIman makes a USB controller, the Oxygen8 ($180 list,
www.midiman.com), with a two-octave keyboard, an assignable slider, and eight
assignable knobs.




si, moi je parle le chinois....euhhh le francais...

Mais j ai aucune idee pour rsoudre ton probleme...dsol.
J   'aimerais bien comprendre ce que l'utilisation d'un clavier t'apporte dans le contr?le de tes lumieres...veux-tu les synchroniser (en temps rel) avec une anim ou un fichier son ?


    Y_a_t_il des personnes qui parlent le francais ou le chinois dans ce newsgroup ?
    Anyway this is a silly question. My purpose is to connect a midi keyboard within maya, to have much better control over the lighting of my scene. Any experience would be appreciate.

    By the way, i create a solar system, and experienced trouble with motion path under a scale of 1e-005 ( Maya 2.0). The planet seemed to danse a parkinson java. So beware with macroscopic bug.
