Short-term goals / Ongoing Work

Patch Review & Decision Time

  • For Anim: Bake Channel operator #111263: what should the available options for keeping/discarding pre-bake keys be?
    • Nathan proposes removing the 4 options choice (keep all, remove inside range, remove outside range, remove all), and only having “Remove keys outside of the range” as a boolean operator.
    • Christoph: Brad’s original proposal had all four options, hence they were implemented.
    • Pablo & Rik agree with Nathan.
    • Nathan is very enthousiastic about the PR overall.
  • Context menu for channels renaming #115845: Fix #115581: Animation Editors: Channel Context Menu mis-labeled
    • Christoph: it’s a 1-line change, let’s land it.
    • Sybren: agrees, there is no such thing as a “Dopesheet Channel” anyway.
    • Module agrees.

Next Meeting

The next meeting will be on Thursday 2023-12-21T17:00:00Z. It will be the last meeting of 2023!

Again it will be open for everybody who’s interested. The draft meeting agenda will be updated before the meeting.


I will have a request for a module. When 4.1 is out, it would be helpful if you guys could do a video that goes over keying and animation changes, like Simon and Julien are doing now with nodes and sculpting. Sometimes its harder to follow changes especially since module is so active.


I actually suggested the same thing while talking with some ppl at the office, recently :slight_smile: Glad to know there’s a demand!
