Hi, there is a patch in the tracker to optionally display empties with reference images, personally I think our existing background images are inflexible/annoying enough that they could be replaced by objects completely.
- offset & scale is cumbersome to match with the scene & other images.
- no rotation.
- they are always background, sometimes you want the reference to be an overlay for the solid view.
- this is stored in the view which means…
** no way to copy a set of images to other views.
** joining a view can loose the images
** loading without the UI will loose images
** switching window layouts will loose the current images.
** linking in a scene wont link in images.
– edit –
- Camera Images will have to be supported for camera tracking.
Blenderstorm proposal, including more details.
