Sun beams node prevents to move the node
Confirmed, NormalPublicBUG


System Information
Operating system: Linux Fedora 31
Graphics card: Intel

Blender Version
Broken: (example: 2.80, edbf15d3c044, master, 2018-11-28, as found on the splash screen): commit 5472ae6fdff (and probably earlier version)

Short description of error
In compositor, adding a Sun Beams node doesn't allow to move it with mouse. We can only use "grab" action (G key)

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Make a render of default cube
  • Go to compositor tab
  • Add a viewer
  • Connect sun beams node between Render Layers and Viewer
  • Try to move the sun beam node

Actually, mouse is locked to change the sun beams position as soon as the node is selected. I understand that we need to double-click on others nodes to select them and leave sun beam position action, but it doesn't work with the sun beam itself :)
The only way to move it is to click on sun beam node and to use "grab" (G key)


Event Timeline

Patrice (metal3d) updated the task description. (Show Details)

Note that we can:

  • leave sun beams node by double-cliking on another node
  • then make a box selection on the sun beams node
  • and now, we can move it with the mouse
