Ongoing Work

Patches: Review & Decision Time

  • #122812: options “play in …” of the timeline does not seem to work This report is a misunderstanding of undocumented and a bit weird behavior. Those settings only work if not started from the Graph Editor, Dope Sheet or NLA editor. This was an intentional change based on feedback from Hjalti.
    • Nate: is the motivation playback performance?
    • Raymond: I’ve used this before to make editing in the graph editor faster, when e.g. the scene has a really heavy rig. Makes the graph editor responsive.
    • Christoph: makes sense. Although this issue is specifically about playback. Do you use the feature for playback?
    • Raymond: no, only for editing interaction.
    • Bassam: let’s check with Hjalti about the original intent, to make sure we understand the use case for the current behavior.
    • Christoph: yeah, definitely let’s check with him.
    • Nathan: agreed. Having said that, it sounds like it might just not be useful for playback anymore, and we could change it to only be about editing interactivity. But yeah, let’s talk to Hjalti first to confirm the intended use case.
    • Module agrees.

Next Meeting
