Don't disable "Display" box in Pose Editor while playing animation

Johan Aires Rastén 2 weeks ago updated by Peter - Soxware Developer 2 weeks ago 1

Currently the Display options box in Pose Editor becomes greyed out while the animation is playing, but it feels like they shouldn't have to be.

Just a minor annoyance that I had to stop the animation, change bone rendering style and then play it again.

Bonus request: Add a bone opacity slider to the options, so I can make them semi-transparent.

Hi Johan,

thank you very much for sharing your ideas.

You are right, it makes more sense to keep the display options enabled while playing an animation. If this is easy to be fixed (from the technical point of view), I'm going to add this to one of the next updates.

Bonus request: Add a bone opacity slider to the options, so I can make them semi-transparent.

You might want to use the wire-frame bone rendering style in that case. I'm adding the idea of semi-transparent bones to my "ideas for the future" list, but I'm considering this with low priority.

Thanks for your idea and don't hesitate to contact me whenever you have such an idea.

Best regards,

Peter
