Hi @Damien Picard (pioverfour)
I was asked to add a camera offset control to the 3d camera rigs.
Which I have done on my Github (https://github.com/waylow/add_camera_rigs)

Wayne Dixon (waylow) added a comment to T71017: Gizmo scales bone when translation channels are locked.

As an animator, I have always switched my manipulator, or extended it to include all the transforms I needed. Or used the S key. You know, right tool for the job and all that.
I'm surprised that certain workflows rely on this flaw. Scaling with the G key!

I haven't had a proper look at your code yet (I'm hoping to get a chance this Sunday), but I've just noticed that the PascalCase is used for the naming convention of the Bones as well as the properties.

@Stanislav Ovcharov (Stan1) Yeah, if you select the curves in the order you want, it should stack them in that order. But drop and drag re-ordering after that is nice too.

You are correct - if you let it run it does loop 10 times which is about 44 seconds.

Wayne Dixon (waylow) added a comment to T71238: Graph Editor: Stacked mode for F-curves.

I can see this as being useful. I do think it should automatically 'stack' the selected channels like looch mentioned, but you probably need a limit on this as if you select all the channels for the characters there simply won't be enough room to fit the 17,834 channels in the viewport haha.

I've been playing around with this and I have now decided that I 'Continuous acceleration' should be ON by default.

Wayne Dixon (waylow) added a comment to D5875: Implement a user preference for the default Auto Handle Smoothing mode..

I want to add to what @Hjalti Hjálmarsson (hjalti) said;
One thing think is important to note is having a keyframe modification unintendedly propagate through other keyframes is something NO animator i've ever heard of ever wanted, because we're all the time making sure everything is in the right place at the right moment, and one little curve change from a keyframe that modifies what i did 2 keyframes earlier or later can make a pop or an unintended behaviour arise really fast.

I can also confirm this bug. It's been around since last year but I couldn't figure out when it happened.
@Paul Davidson (Coraxyn)'s instructions make it reproducible.
Once the icons have disappeared they stay disappeared until you close and reopen Blender. (not sure if that will help with the solution or not)
