Waypoints: what could be the future of...?


#21

Added #262 “Edit waypoint with double-click” and #763 “Show summary of all waypoints for current layer”.


#22

@KonstantinDmitriev I have gone through all the issues mentioned here and selected most of them to work upon during project period. Additionally I have also added some more possible ideas for editing waypoints like “on clicking the waypoint, layers get to the state of that frame”.
PS- Just a polish required in draft.


#23

@yshkp Thank you for keeping me updated! Please feel free to send me proposal draft as soon as it will get initial polishing. I will be happy to review. :slight_smile:


#24

@KonstantinDmitriev I also checked that there are many broken links of the issues in the top post.


#25

@yshkp I have fixed all links. Please check if everything works now. :slight_smile:


#26

@KonstantinDmitriev Yes, now it’s fine.
One suggestion regarding multi-waypoint deleting: Can we extend the feature of the box that I am gonna build in the project to use in deleting waypoints also using delete button after selecting waypoints?


#27

That’s possible, but I afraid you will hit a “keyboard shortcut scope” issue - see bugs #257 #292 and #303.

See also my comments here - https://github.com/synfig/synfig/issues/629#issuecomment-471030956

As a workaround we can use some other key, not Delete.


#28

@KonstantinDmitriev Oh yes , I just made an instance of delete key, my main doubt was regarding the concept of deleting waypoints. We can make any other key to use this. If you allow me I can also add this idea in my draft.


#29

@yshkp Please add everything you have in mind - we can refine that in discussion :slight_smile:


#30

@KonstantinDmitriev I don’t see any use of time track panel in parameter dock. As we already have separate time track panel which is more clear and precise.


#31

@yshkp Yes, the timetrack in Parameters Panel is mystery covered by darkness - it was existing there since the time when Synfig was opensourced by original developers. Maybe that is a trace of incomplete development or maybe its opposite - they haven’t removed it when separated it to dedicated panel… It’s hard to tell.

But you right - it has no use as of the moment. :slight_smile:


#32

@KonstantinDmitriev That’s why I also included the idea of removal of that timetrack from parameters panel in my proposal as it is of no use right now and also looks vague.


#33

Or maybe it was just a clue about which parameter had waypoints set, from the time panels where floating around…


#34

Yeah I’ve always thought that.


#35

Added issue for static intervals feature - https://github.com/synfig/synfig/issues/790
