I was just watching an overview of 3DCoat which has included something that’s quite clever. As more an more tools are added the application gets increasingly complex, like Blender. They’ve now included, within the splashscreen, options to jump directly to an appropriate workspace for specific tasks. I’m aware Blender has workspaces but this makes them instantly available and visible as soon as the application is started.
As Blender draws more and more diverse users into the fold I think this could go a long way to simplifying workflows… if a particular user is only coming to Blender for Motion Tracking why make them navigate through all the tools and windows. Any thoughts?
Here’s a screengrab of how 3D Coat 4.5 does it:
