Update of compositor > properties

Authored by Hugo Schouppe (HUSCH) on May 5 2020, 4:40 PM.



The old text did not reflect the small changes in the UI since version 2.80. Added some new figures and changed the text accordingly.
I'm not quite sure that I have made the correct distinction between panel, side bar and properties. I think the entry in yhe manual should be called sidebar.
But since the name of the file is 'Properties' I've kept this convention.

I've added the remark "[here about figure xxx: Sidebar with the View tab selected.]" to indicate where the figures should be placed.
In a previous patch I've tried to add the images myself (apparently not in the correct way). Thereupon you have asked to put them in the comments.
So, I did this also with the current patch. To indicate where the new figures should go, I've added the above sentence.
It would be easier for me and for you if I could add the images myself. Is there some info about how to accomplish this?

Hugo Schouppe (HUSCH) set the repository for this revision to rBM Blender Manual.

The text is updated with the correct links to the images. I have also changed the image size from 331 * 419 to 267 * 338 px (cfr remark Eitan). The width of 267 px is the same as the width of the original image in the old text (was not sure about how small the images should be). I've added the resized images in this comment.

I tested the images and there are spacing issues that need to be fixed.

Can you get pictures without the node wrangler tab

Hi Eitan,
Sorry for all the additional work on this update. I'm rather new on the Restructured Text and Subversion thing.
Concerning the Node Wrangler tab. The idea was in fact to add such a tab to indicate that there can be additional tabs. But, you also had a case that this is not the standard Blender UI.
So, If you would like, I can remake all of the pictures without the Node Wrangler tab and make them at the same time smaller. But, can you then tell me what a preferred size would be? Or can I test it myself to see if there are no misalignments? Rebuilding the html locally?

Yes, please use the standard UI making screenshots.

Also to make elements not overlap you can add this between the sections to add blank space so the image fits:

.. container:: lead

   .. clear

I've addedd the container tag and also uploaded the pictures in the standard UI.

Here the pictures in the standard UI.

I see now that in the diff file there is a section of a text I'm working on. (at the bottom) Please disregard them. I have not figured out how I can make a diff-file for a single rst-file or to build the html-page for that file alone (I keep the revisons in a separate folder). Do you know about any info or tutorial about this workflow?

I'm currently working on T75511 for the compositor section. I will skip the /manual/compositing/properties section so I don't interfere with this diff.


I would personally get rid of the "Can be high, medium or low" part. The user of Blender can already see these options by clicking on the drop down and the manuals writing guide says "Avoid including specific details".

But you may want to wait to hear feedback from @Aaron Carlisle (Blendify)
