I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the graph editor lately and some recurring annoyances keep scratching away at my brain.
(I’m not sure if this is the right place to do feature requests. Sorry if I’m in the wrong place)
Right now, I have to isolate a selected channel by first selecting the channel(s) I want to focus on, then hitting “v” to isolate it, then moving my mouse over to the graph and hitting the “home” key to frame the curve up. This is a 3-4 step process that I go through every time I select a channel. It doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re doing it all day long those extra clicks really start to add up.
It would be great if there was a (toggle-able) option to make these steps happen automatically every time I select a channel. It would be an incredible time-saver over the course of the day if my channel selection would isolate and frame automatically.
To be specific, menu options for “auto isolate channel selection” and “auto frame on selection” would rock.
Framing a curve doesn’t include handles in the framing, requiring an additional readjustment of the view if I want to work with the handles.
Selecting multiple handles on multiple curves feels a bit buggy. I either can’t ctl-b select the rotation handles at all, or it selects ALL the rotation handles on a particular frame at once, even if I only selected one of them.
Additionally, it would be great if soft select worked on graph curve points. This would be especially useful when working with dense keyframe data like motion capture.
That’s it at the moment, really. Blender’s graph editor is becoming pretty awesome overall. And if these features exist and I’m just doing it wrong, I would love to be corrected!
Thanks for everything!
