Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to D5070: Masking Keymap.

I know, it's a bit weird, but when select is set to select_mouse (LMB by default), there is a conflict with the tweak functionality, so when you try to slide a single mask point, you slide the entire mask.
We had 2 different select modes in 2.79 as well: left-clicking would do a select + move when dragggin, right-clicking would select as well, and, if mouse dragged, would start a transform as well. However, only with RMB you could also extend the selection by holding shift.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T65589: Movie Clip doesn't duplicate clip (problem making single user copy from something that has a fake user in 2.8).

I would say Fake User is different than normal user. The UI doesn’t even use the F anymore, so to non-old-farts or developers it would not be obvious why enabling the shield icon (formerly know as F) would add a user. So, clicking the shield icon should not raise number.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T65589: Movie Clip doesn't duplicate clip (problem making single user copy from something that has a fake user in 2.8).

I think part of the problem is, that there is not really a second user, because the Scene doesn’t really “use” it. The thing is that in this case as well as in the case of Node Groups there is no obvious way to create a second user to begin with. So I would rather not make the user count hidden at all.

Correct. I would expect that at least it would be possible to generate another unique datablock copy of a clip via the fake user. A more direct way to do it would be nice though, not only in clip but everywhere in Blender. Node Group has a similar problem, where there is no not clunky way to create a copy.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T65445: Can't scale or rotate mask in movie clip editor.

I would say it was changed by accident. The thing is, it works okay if you create a New File and choose VFX. Then the pivot point is correctly set to Median Point. However, if you create a New>General File and go to Masking or Tracking Workspace, the pivot is set to Individual Origins (which is a very confusing setting for users).

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T65445: Can't scale or rotate mask in movie clip editor.

It's probably because Pivot Point is set to 'Individual Origins'. It had been solved at some point, but somehow got reverted. Should definitely be set back to Median Point as standard Pivot Point before 2.80 release.

If a Save button is there, I expect most users will press it every time to ensure they don't lose changes, even if that's not actually needed. And that then defeats the purpose of autosaving.

But the auto-saving was added mainly to automatically save the QuickFavorites, wasnt it? So even if there is a save button, auto saving still has a good reason to be there.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T64174: Automatically Store Quick Favorites .

The simplest solution seems like just always storing preferences when changed. It’s what most users would expect anyway. Developers who want to ‘play around with’ various preference options could still have a way to do that.

May 6 2019, 9:45 AM · BF Blender, User Interface
Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T64174: Automatically Store Quick Favorites .

I kind of agree with @Stanislav Ovcharov (Stan1) here.
If you are in User Preferences Window, there is a button to save them, very discoverable. Also, playing around with different configurations and settings is very common, and I for one would rather save those manually.
However, if I explicitly add something to the Quick Favorites (or presets, e.g.), I would expect those to be saved automatically. The Quick Favorites are less of a setting that I first have to try out in order to know what it does, like it is usually the case with the settings in User Prefs, but something that I already know how to use, which is why I add those to Quick Favs in the first place. So having those saved automatically seems logical to me.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T64034: orthographic view mode.

I am not quite sure this is a bug.
Orthographic view, being orthographic, does not really have a camera in space you can move. So if you perform a hotkey that is meant to move a camera ("dolly zoom"), it seems very logical to then switch to a mode where you CAN move the camera, e.g. perspective view. The alternative would be to either not do anything at all, or to just perform a zoom. But in the case of the latter, there already is a shortcut that does exactly that: CTRL+MMB.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T63826: Crashing file.

@Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) Ok, I have been able to locate the possible root of the issue. It's related to the 'Object' setting in Texture Coordinates nodes in the object's material.
If I remove the entry in the Object field (in this case it's 'HLP_center.001'), I can go to Shading Workspace just fine.
In fact, if I create a new file with a new material, go to LookDev mode, add a texture with a mapping node and put e.g. the Light in the Object text field, Blender crashes immediately. At least it does for me.
I have rebuilt from scratch, even tried to build dependencies again, but still it crashes. The build from buildbot however doesnt. I have no idea what's going on. Obviously you cannot debug my system, but maybe you have an idea where the problem might come from?

Not sure if it would fix the problem, it will help that the problem doesnt even occur. If you tracked with the movie out of sync those tracks will probably still be problematic. But yes, building the timecode first and then doing the tracking should avoid that particular issue.

Whenever you track with a movie file rather than an image sequence you have to build either a proxy or just the timecode.
Otherwise it can get out of sync with lots of back and forth tracking etc.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to D4613: Proposal: Move Scene and View Layer dropdowns to Scene and View Layer Properties.

If those two menus are gone it get's rather annoying to get to the scene and viewlayer configuration that you need. I mean, usually there is just 1 properties editor open. And in most cases it will be set to something else than viewlayer or scene. So if you need to switch those you first have to navigate to these 2 (separate!) tabs, set scene and viewlayer and then go back to your previous properties tab.
Then there's fullscreen mode where you also sometimes need to change scene and/or viewlayer.
More importantly though there is the Video Editing workspace, which doesnt currently have an outliner. But especially there you have to have more than one scene in your file, if you wanna use a blender scene for editing. So you need to be able to switch scenes there. But adding an outliner there just for that? I don't know. I mean, is space really problem in the header bar? I would guess that the majority of Blender users do have at least an HD monitor, and there is plenty of space. I
That said, think @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht)'s solution could work well.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to D4613: Proposal: Move Scene and View Layer dropdowns to Scene and View Layer Properties.

I know that I am probably not part of this vast majority of users, but Scenes and View Layers (or Renderlayers previously) have always been a curcial part of my workflow. And as soon as you start doing any kind of VFX view layers are necessary, and while not the majority I do think that there are quite a few VFX artists in the Blender community. I found it a very welcome step forward to have the info, which view I am an currently in, in the header bar.
@William Reynish (billreynish) I really like your proposal though to add the View Layer info in the outliner like in your last mockup, as well as putting those dropdowns in scene and viewlayer properties panels. I'd just like to keep them in the header as well.

These are both no bugs.
The first one is the effect of the setting "Auto Perspective" in Preferences > Navigation > Orbit & Pan.
The second one is the effect of "Clip Start" value being too high in your case. Go to the View Panel in 3D Viewport Sidebar ("N") and set Clip Start to 0.001 instead of 0.1. Then your cube will be visible even when you are zoomed in that far as in your case.

Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) added a comment to T62386: Linking-in a collection from a library file will link-in and instantiate a nested collection-instance defined within that library file.

Hehe, yeah, with Blender's development speed you better compile immediately after finding a bug. It might already be fixed! :)

Thanks for the report, but if I am not mistaken this was fixed a few days ago: https://developer.blender.org/rB683e64247f060acbb8b9ba9178e7555dc57aa10b
@Dirk (d-egg), try again with a recent build.
