"Change Pivot" Feature request / Question

Maxxx 3 months ago updated by Peter - Soxware Developer 3 months ago 2

Hi Peter. Thank you for great plugin!

I've made a few good animation and Just wanted to add here a Feature request / Question:

- Can we automatically change Pivot mode based on Rotation / Moving tool? I mean - when I press "W" for moving the Pivot changes to Global, and when I press "E" for rotation the Pivot goes to Local. I know that there is the "X" key. But it breaks a quick workflow and creates a lot of mistakes/misclicks.

thanks

Hi Maxxx,

thank you very much for your feature request.

While being useful in your use case, it's not guaranteed that everybody always wants the move tool to automatically be in global space (and the rotate tool to automatically be in local space). It really depends on the current situation but also on personal preferences. Unity for example is also not changing the editing space automatically when switching from the rotate to the move tool. I think in order to be consistent it's better to keep the current "manual" behavior.

Please let me know in case you have any follow-up questions.

Best regards,
Peter
