DepsGraph: Multi ViewLayer Selection

Authored by Jeroen Bakker (jbakker) on May 8 2019, 9:50 AM.



When using multiple viewlayers and switching between them the selection
gets buggy. The reason for this is that the select_id is updated based
on the index in the viewlayer. This makes the select_id not unique as
objects might be shared or not shared at all.

This fix will update the select_id on all objects in main. This will be triggered in all the selection operators.

This code does not belong to dependency graph building: if one needs to create dependency graph for motion paths creation or for compositor/sequencer evaluation, this must not touch anything unrelated to that.

In short words: dependency graph building must not change input data.


Comment is a sentence, starting with a capital letter and ending with a fullstop.


Appears you are not using clang-format. There should be no space before ++.
Make sure you've got properly configured clang-format.

Every select operator will now ensure the select_id.

This should be DEG_get_original_object(dupli_parent)->runtime.select_id, since select IDs are only updated in the original.

Or we could remove this line entirely since select_id is never read from BASE_FROM_DUPLI objects.




G_MAIN -> CTX_data_main(C), here and in other places.


Add a comment that this is only in the original object.
