Ideal Navisworks Navigation - WoW

I find it a stumbling task to navigate in Navisworks files. In World of Warcraft, they have a very smooth flow for 3D navigation while in the air(riding a flying beast, of course). I would love Navisworks much more if Autodesk could duplicate this naviagtion. For those unfamiliar with it, here is a summary: W - Fly forward. Q - Strafe left E - Straft right A - Rotate direction left S - Fly backwards D - Rotate direction right X - Decend (like a helicopter would) Spacebar - Ascend (like a helicopter) Left click + drag - Rotates look direction freely. Right click + drag - Rotates look direction freely and orients movement in direction of look. Simultaneoues Right and Left Click - Fly forward with directional control by moving mouse. This essentially comines the Fly Mode, Look Around Mode, and Pan Mode all into one easy to use navigation. Anyone else have thoughts on this? Like/dislike?

I too find myself wanting to use the standard AWSD keys for movement.  I know this was put into the wishlist at one time cuz I did it.  The response back was those movements are already available, just the NW way though.  So, if it does make it to the "development plan" I suspect it will be at the bottom of the pit.

Thanks for the inrofmation, Chris. I submitted there.


FYI, I also tried to give my information for the Autodesk Usability Studies. When I click the submit button, it appears that the link is broken, though.
