  • Short-term goals
    • Drawing and animation feature parity
    • Fixing issues with conversion
  • Antonio: Is the work from Jacques being used in grease pencil?
    • Falk: The idea is that we can use the same functions in grease pencil.
  • Matias: Will there be keyframes with duration? (There was a mock-up from this in the blog post)
    • Falk: No. For now the focus remains on getting parity with GPv2. The underlying data-structures for keyframes with duration are there, but they won’t be exposed for now.
