This is a thread to discuss Animation related tools, add-ons and workflow improvements that you would like to see added to Blender. The Idea is that we can help raise awareness of our needs as animators and hopefully encourage development and workflow enhancement in thous areas.
I have started the ball rolling by sharing and updating some of the scripts that I use for my own workflow “Proxy Picker” and adding features that others want/need.
I have also produced a prototype of a workflow enhancement called PAE or “Property Animation Editor” that aims to add a unified method of animating multiple properties across multiple bones by allowing you to create a custom UI.
Can I try it?
Yes, but the PAE is in prototype stage so not suitable for use outside of testing. The Proxy picker tool is closer to being usable and I aim to get a solid release done soon.
They are currently working as standalone scripts and can be tested with this .Blend: LINK
