After you've modified your object, will these gizmos disappear or will they show up on every object once the tool is enabled? I feel like this'd be better for modifiying other shapes fast.

@Adam Preisler (Alphisto) This doesn’t add any extra affordance to switch cameras. This is about the ability to more easily manipulate the camera when inside the camera view, which is currently not so easy by default.

Since there is a discussion now and a hopeful horizon I would like to add that since we're talking about cameras it would be great to have Exposure & Contrast controls.

@PawelP (Zuorion): Averaging is not the same as comparing. Anyway, this is more depending on implementation rather than a purely design issue.

@William Reynish (billreynish) hmm, in editmode, transform pannel is already being calculated in realtime for milions of vertices


And its calculating mean value and not only checking if they are equal.

Karl Mochel (kalmdown) added a comment to T54862: Multi-Object Properties Editing.

@William Reynish (billreynish) Looking at the space from the user POV (vs performance) - Do users want to have animation, driven, keyframed control for every property? If so, then they need the ability to control every property. To have control they can interpret with minimal error they need to understand the state of controls. One of the states of properties is multi-select - thus they need an experience that lets them understand any property that can be driven/animated when there is a multi-selection.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T54862: Multi-Object Properties Editing.

@Karl Mochel (kalmdown) Of course, that is obvious. The difficulty of that is one of performance. Blender then has to compare many values to see if they differ or not. But, many other apps seem to do this with no issues, so it must be technically possible for us to do.

Steffen Dünner (SteffenD) added a comment to T54862: Multi-Object Properties Editing.

I just fired up my old and trusty Softimage 2015 because it had a very nice multi-select behaviour: If you select 2 or more objects with different attributes, it displayed an empty value for everything that wasn't set to the same value in all objects. If you now typed in a new value it set it to the same for all objects. BUT: if you entered something like "2+" it added 2 to all of the selected objects' property values. Very very nice. You could even enter expressions to e.g. randomize a value per object.

Geoffrey Megardon (Nodragem) added a comment to T54862: Multi-Object Properties Editing.

Unity allows that, and it shows "--" when the values are different. It is quite handy to be honest.


An average does force you to go though all the values, but to test for the object being different may save some computation time?
When you say many many values, are we speaking of 100 or 1000 or more?

The initial bugreport is still valid, as the behavior of the operator is still broken.

@Robert S (eobet) That is outside of the scope of this topic and this tool. Yes, parametric modeling is a much needed feature in Blender, but luckily Blender is moving in this direction with the Everything Nodes project.

Ingmar Franz (Uranus) added a comment to T56349: 3D Viewport (parent task).

I've found a workaround for making Dynamic Weight Painting visible in Blender 2.8 in Eevee and Cycles (Look Dev and Rendered):
Unwrap your object and scale the UV-map so that all UV-vertices are at (0,0). Now add an UV-Warp-Modifier to your object and use two Empties added at (0,0,0) and (1,1,0) as helper objects for the Modifier.
The dynamic weight paint map "dp_weight" determines the influence of the UV-Warp-Modifier. From the UV-Map-node, we separate the x or y value, put it into a color ramp with blue at the left, green in the middle and red at the right.
Plug the color ramp into your shader node and the weights become visible: See in attached files:
With a plane:

Quality interpolation options are needed for displaying images in empties:

Will the grab and rotate hotkeys be supported as well? For people not using gizmos I think it would be inconvenient to use gizmos when transforming the cursor.

Ludvik Koutny (rawalanche) added a comment to T69550: 3D Cursor tool todo.

Is there any reason the gizmo doesn't have planar and 3D transform handles? I can imagine many cases where I'd like to snap cursor onto something on 2D plane or in 3D. Right now, with the ability to only move cursor one axis at the time, that would be an unnecessary amount of steps.
