Title: A few suggestions
Post by: RnDr FOX on December 30, 2008, 06:06:02 am
Well like I have said before on stuff like this, I don't know if people have already asked this before or how hard it is to implement but here are a few suggestions.
Also I am not sure if anim8or already has these features so if it does please inform me and I will delete the suggestion.
He we go.

- The ability to see through objects in object mode like in the perspective view. (An example would be if you modeled a house and you wanted to see the furniture inside)

- The ability to change the size of screens (If you are using two screens you can make one bigger that the other)

- When changing the view of the second screen it will not go back to one screen and will stay at two or more

- A select/deselect all key

- A key that gives you the ability to zoom out enough to view all of the objects in the work area

- (And here is my wild request ;D) In anim8or there is object mode, figure mode, and scene mode, but what about a script mode. In script mode you will be able     to write ASL and compile and check for errors, and normal scripting stuff (I guess it's like jcreator, netbeans, and Dev-C++)

Thanks for taking my suggestions into consideration, hope you like some of them ;)

1. Not sure what you mean. You can set semi-transparent materials or just use the wireframe mode.
3. I think this is more a bug than anything else...View->All and 1+3 Views allows you to change the views of each view but not any other.
4. Ctrl+A to select all, just select a blank area in the workspace to deselect all
5. f to frame all or F to frame selected. Also is in the View menu.
6. Go to Scripts->Edit Script File... I imagine Steve will eventually work on this and more debugging features in the future.

But how about deselecting.as in when you frame or zoom  an object alot to modify it better it is a bit difficult to deselect a point/edge/face without resetting the view.any ideas.by th way zooming is middle mouse button with the enviroment rotate on-Ctrl+R.For those who didn't knw.

I don't really understand what you mean... If you want to deselect an individual face/edge/point, you can use the middle mouse button.

Oh ok then that's the solution to my problem.Thanks.but just in case i mean when you zoom in really close to an object then it 'hides' the environment.e.g. a cube

Just use point select and click on a face. This way you won't select anything since there is on point in the middle of a face.
