Hey there! I was just toying around with the cinematic editor for 5 minutes after seeing the gorge dance movie in the twitter stream.
I noticed a few problems and was wondering if anybody had the same problems?
- The "curves" editor needs to allow for x/y/z movement instead of only z (zoom, in and out). If you add a lot of properties, they are outside the initial visible area. Using the regular modifier keys I was not able to "scroll", but only to zoom. This means that you loose a lot of precision when modifying key frames for properties that are far away from the center.
Basically: Allow to move up/down/right/left in curves editor instead of only zooming
- When moving a key frame for a property in the curves editor, add a modifier key to fix the x-axis during move. Basically when you modify a key frame property this helps to prevent moving in time, but only modify the desired property
- Some random problems, e.g. a camera suddenly disappeared. Could only be fixed by restarting the editor.
Otherwise the editor seems a real joy, and I hope to create a few cool scenes for an even cooler game.
I know this does not necessarily have priority, but these changes should be relatively easy to implement, and they might help movie makes to make NS2 more popular even before release.
