Folders in Sequence mode
« on: June 13, 2020, 02:45:17 am »

 Just wondering if thats on the list?
 So accustomed now to having folders for objects and bones, sequence mode always looks a bit 'untidy' without them,

just a thought... how about automatic foldering based on which figure a sequence applies to?  maybe as a togglable option.

 Yes, i think thats what i'm meaning, and which is actually happening already.
 In figure mode, you sort the different bones into folders, then when you go to scene mode, those folders show 'automatically' in the time track,
  Couldn't they show 'automatically' in the sequence editor as well?

 Is that what you were meaning?  :)

Yes, Sequence mode should put them in folders, too, but I guess I never got around to doing it :( I'll add it!

cuppa tea steve'.
 i know you've got a lot on your plate.
  Feeling a bit guilty mentioning it at this time, as it's not really a biggy, and you're busy doing more important things. Can live without folders in sequence mode for some time yet, so keep it on the backburner till 'it feels good'.

Hi Steve.
 I think the folders in 'Sequence editor timetrack' have broken. (i'm sure they used to be there?).

 I've just got a new old gaming pc, with 8.00 GB of RAM and Nvidia Geforce GTX 660


 I know it's old, but man, compared to my previous, its awesome.
 Windows 10 running anim8or, which is another new thing, as i've been on win7 for a few years now.
 Most of my time on xp of course.

oops. Sorry steve.

Just checked through the development forum list and can't see record of folders in sequence mode
.
I was sure that they were added at some stage, lol, that's like 'twilight zone' stuff.
 
Man, must be cuppa tea time for me.

Finally got folders working in the Sequence editor: build 1402. It was a bit more work that  I had thought - too much messy code! Who wrote this, anyway? I also noticed, most importantly:

#101-055 - Adding a new bone to a figure doesn't show up in a scene.

so I'll be fixing that next.

 Awesome steve.  Have just downloaded 1402. Will make such a difference with that.

Well spotted.

I never know what to say when you talk about 'messy code'. It must be so tricky keeping all your code in perfect order, with all the work you've been doing on, and adding to, anim8or.
 All i can really say is, 'This end is absolutely friggen awesome'.
 It's amazing how much anim8or can do, especially taking into account the size of the program and
 the fact that it's one mans baby.
  There's always a bit of a mess, here and there, on the big jobs.

 Nice one steve
 Did have a problem to begin with, but must say it was probably self inflicted. Was deleting bones, renaming others, (previously 'foldered'), while creating new folders and generally making a real mess out of a mess to begin with.  ::)
 Have used in several other cases where all is good. If i can ever recreate a situation where anim8or crashes again i'll be sure to post a bug report.
 Apart from that one time, all is going well. Thank you. :)

[johnar] one issue is when you add new bones and folder names to a figure, after viewing a scene that contains that figure, the new folders aren't displayed if you go to the scene again.
