Custom property cannot be animated
Open, ConfirmedPublic

Description

Blender2.8 Windows 64 bits version 30/08/2018 20:49

If you add a keyframe using I key over the custom property, if you move timeline, you cannot change or animate the custom property.

To reproduce:

  1. Open attached file.
  2. Select cube and in custom properties set "hide" property to 0
  3. Over "hide" property, press I to insert keyframe
  4. Move the timeline and try to change hide prop or insert a new keyframe

I noticed also some random blender crashes when clear the property keyframe of hide property.

I have tested the same in 2.79b and works.

I have pasted the log of one the crashes P775

I could reproduce the error with the default scene:

  1. Open default scene
  2. Select default cube
  3. Add a custom prop (the default name is prop)
  4. Press N and in properties enter any value to "prop"
  5. Press I over prop
  6. Now try to move timeline and insert a new value in the prop.

Reminds me of similar issue with some VSE properties in 2.7x… IIRC, animation gets re-evaluated when editing those values, hence they get reset to animated value immediately…

@Joshua Leung (aligorith), @Sergey Sharybin (sergey), not sure whether we have standard fix for those cases?
