Project View - Improvements

Post by Peter Wassink » 15 Jun 2021, 12:59

To further develop the potential of the project view
i'd like to group a couple of requests regarding this part of the timeline here. please add your ideas.

1) a "Scene import manager" where you can set yourself how tvpaint should import a batch of images from the library into the TVPProject view
it would allow you to create presets that takes into account the image name for: combining images into; clips, scenes, colorgroups. and also for naming them.

so for instances, two files named; Example_sc001_sh002 and Example_sc001_sh002 could be combined into one scene.
and three files named; Example_sc001_sh006_key01, Example_sc001_sh006_key36 and Example_sc002_sh001_key01
would give you one scene (of one clip) containing two images ( the first on frame 1 and the second on frame 36 ) and another scene with just one image

all could work much in the same way as the " New Layer Preset" panel in the Clip:timeline part of the timeline panel.

2) when multiple clips/scenes are selected (using shift) you should be able to drag them around as a selected group.

I actually had a huge list of improvement suggestions in this thread already: ... oject+view
However some of the issues have been fixed recently, so this list became a tiny bit shorter.
But I now want to add one more point: I would like to be able to set a clip's duration manually (by entering the amount of frames with keyboard).
