lower case (lowercase) added a comment to T56413: Setup Tracking Scene not working in 2.8.

how about an option to make a simple setup using a shadow catcher plane and just one render layer..? that is often enough to have a working scene

I still prefer colors I think, you could just pick a better palette...
almost every single property can be animated in Blender, even checkboxes, would that mean having grey dots everywhere?
a new 'modified' state for animated properties would be so nice to have, it just helps you feel you have control over your work... btw you are doing a great job!

lower case (lowercase) added a comment to T53912: BTrace Mesh Follow results in curve rolled into a ball.

could try a fix... open the file: scripts\addons\btrace\bTrace.py
in lines 669 and 673 change 'matrix_local' to 'matrix_world', that will fix it for vertex and face tracers
change line 684 'g_co = objindex.location.copy()' to 'g_co = objindex.matrix_world.to_translation()'
that is for the object tracer to work

lower case (lowercase) added a comment to T53201: f-curves simplify addon bugfix.

Nice, there are a couple of other annoyances with this useful script... It only work for active object, and it does not remember settings. Say you have 100 objects from a simulation to clean up, you need to go one by one and re-enter the error value. Luckily you can do it with some python, but it's not very user friendly.

lower case (lowercase) added a comment to T51844: Custom Manipulators: Where to take advantage of manipulators.

the missing manipulator is one that can be used to move object origin
for modifiers it would be nice if you could just skip using empties, I see you mentioned rotation for array
extrude_repeat operator would be useful with a transform manipulator, like a matrix extrude

there's also a little problem here, the uv monkey version committed is not the symmetrical one
just look at unwrapped ears, there's a big face missing in the 'right' ear that is in fact collapsed in the head

Maybe related: in spanish you need to be rigorous when searching for accented words, for instance you need to type 'menú' as 'menu' won't do it. But in browsers and other programs you just search without accents and it works fine. Just curious if this could be improved, not a big problem, thanks.

there's something like this already in the dopesheet, the collapsible 'Filter' button... think using icons makes sense here too
or maybe just a 'ligh mode' -only object names- for heavy scenes? if you get a such speedup then it is good to have it

thanks! #1 is super useful, but a bit hidden... when working with wire edges shouldn't bevel mode switch to only vertices..?
the F6 workflow feels weird here, you bevel but don't see anything, then use F6 to use 'vertex only' and it works, but it won't remember the setting later

the script exports Blender objects as After Effects nulls, then you can use those as a reference for compositing, but AE is a 2D application, in fact you will need some external plugin to be able to load meshes in AE...
cameras and lights should be fine though, please check the documentation for the exporter: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/Adobe_After_Effects

a problem with this is that it conflicts with the 'copy objects to buffer' option -wich is very useful-

it also adds a 'copy transform' option with the combo location/rotation/scale
also 'time_offset' was removed from api in 2.61 I think

it is not a sequencial menu but a radial one, I think numpad numbers makes a lot of sense and will remain the same for 3 items or 8...
maybe add proportional editing menu to object mode too, and combos to manipulator menu? nice work!

agree that mesh select mode feels a bit slower... combos like edges+verts could be added here btw, it looks too empty :p
