Fix T72213: F-Curve animation does not update FreeStyle properties

Authored by Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) on Jan 17 2020, 1:53 PM.



FreeStyle line styles were not part of the dependency graph, and blacklisted from the Copy-on-Write system. As a result, animated FreeStyle properties would not be updated by the animation system, resulting in T72213. There was an explicit call to run the animation system on the original datablocks, but that was (for good reasons) removed in D5394.

This commit adds the FreeStyleLineStyle datablocks to the dependency graph and allows them to be handled by the CoW system. As a result

  • the UI now updates properly when properties are animated, and
  • animated property values are actually used when rendering.

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey), @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht), do you think this is safe for 2.82?

Seems fine overall.


Linestyles are datablocks and so could be used by multiple line sets. This is missing code to ensure the datablock is built only once, see similar functions like build_texture() that have:

if (built_map_.checkIsBuiltAndTag(texture)) {

Same comment as above.

The change is also missing tweak to ID_TYPE_IS_COW.

Think it's best to finally remove duplicated logic and apply P1222 together with your patch.


Linestyle building should be own function, and ID_LS is to be handled in build_id().

Looks good to me now.

I think it's safe for 2.82. If Brecht can have second unbiased look at changes that'd be fantastic :)
