On a number of occasions, I have used the 3D softwares (Max/Maya etc) File Browser to move files, re organize file structures. It saves time rather than having to load up a separate file browser. And the name of the game is to save time, and o allow for a smoother workflow.
I am not panning the File Browser, Im glad I found that it can do Renaming. But I am interested in seeing if there are other people who like me would like to see the basics such as copy/paste/cut etc introduced to the file Browser.
It doesnt mean the developers have to, its just out of interest I ask the question.
i dont know of any actual software that lets you modify and reorganize your files from within its file browser. it is there to load and save files. end of.
that blender does allow you to rename files, choose the type pf file, (blend, blend1/2, movie ,text,script etc) choose how the folders are arranged, (by date, file size, etc) whether to have horizontal or vertical list or image preview, that you can select files with the same shortcut that you would use to select any blender object (A) as well as the standard shift/ctrl click. to name just a few features of the browser, is a small indication of just how much blender has already packed into a function that really only needs to locate, save/load files.
asking for more is just petty and unnecessary and ultimately just shows a laziness on the part of the people requesting such “features”
“can’t be bothered organizing my files from my desktop, i’ll complain until i can do it from within my software package”
grow up, its a 3d modelling program not a desktop OS
3DS Max, Maya, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro Etc all allow you to modify and reorganize your files within the browser. So you are flat out wrong there.
Blender has a lot of great functions in the File Browser, I never said it didn’t, so I don’t know why you tried arguing that point.
Asking for more is not petty or lazy and it is certainly not unnecessary.
As already stated, I am only interested in other people thoughts. If the Devs read this thread, and take note, great, but if not, that’s fine, I know they have a lot of other things to be getting on with. This is not a request thread.
I find your whole attitude and reply to this thread, small minded, overly negative, and intentionally rude. As such is has no part in being part of an open forum where people can share ideas. Not to throws insults around.
yeah, i’m working with a bad attitude atm. sorry
but just because other software does it,(though i’v not seen a version of photoshop or premier that gives you such control over your files as you suggest, maybe in recent versions perhaps) it doesnt invalidate my interpretation of it being lazy. over burdening a program with features that are really unneeded is a bad idea. file management can be done properly and efficiently by your desktop OS, so why would you choke up your software to do the same job?
