Is there anything in the Blender pipeline where Tweak mode is going to be incorporated?
Right now, tweaking in Blender is equivalent to: select vert/edge/face, then hit G, drag and let go. Select>Gkey>drag>let go… OR right-click drag selected item, then left-click to execute. A bit tedious, if I may say.
As opposed to just drag and let go, drag and let go via either left or right click, which most applications have. Until these are incorporated, I don’t think modeling in Blender will be highly recommended.
I have to wonder how many people actually model in Blender. Or do the majority of open source users prefer using Wings3d, then do the rest in Blender? Or are they forced to use commercial applications? …Just curious.
What about Smart Highlighting?
