The middle mouse button moves Points in the direction of their normal, not the faces normal. Depending on the geometry this can scale faces either larger or smaller. There isn't a command to move a face in the direction of it's normal with no scaling. This would be impossible to do if two adjacent faces are selected since it would create a gap.

However you can use the Extrude Faces tool, and then use the Topo Knife to dissolve the extra edges to achieve the effect of moving a single face by it's normal. Here's a sample move:

Reference images aren't supported in the sequence editor. It's a good idea, however, so I'll keep it in mind when I'm working on new features.

Yes, nice job Kevin. I missed seeing your post earlier because it somehow didn't show up in my unread posts view.

"morph targets able to be grouped into folders" - yes a good idea that I somehow forgot about. I'll give it priority.

I'm in Italy at the moment but when I return I'll continue working on another build. I have some bugs to finish up and maybe, just maybe a couple of additions.

Really funny, johnar, though a tiny bit rude :) I always love your animations.

Nice tutorial, johnar! Your humor is always a delight!

AlecJames: Good idea. I'll see if I can add an area select capabilitie to the bone influence tool in the future.

I just posted a build with a similar Joint Rotate tool added to the Scene editor here: build 1363. It is slightly different in that the child bones retain their global orientation and the bone length don't change.

Note: There are several things that I'm still working on. Joint limits aren't obeyed, and locked IK targets aren't obeyed.

I've included a simple puppet character with unlimited joint angles for you to experiment with. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

To use the old Arc Rotate control:

1. Make sure that the Options->Debug->UseOriginalArcRotate option is checked.

2. Hold down the Alt key and use the Left mouse button to rotate, Middle to zoom and Right to pan sideways (inside the circle) and dolly in/out (outside the circle)

I copied one of them here - was going to copy them all but got lazy :(

To start a new spline, select the Add Edge tool in the Point Editor. Then Shift+Click-Drag in an empty space to add the first edge.
