I have been having a hard time getting a prop to move exactly as I want. I probably need more patience and work but

it occurred to me that if I could use a Gizmo at time T1, T2 T3...... I would be able to control it perfectly. Has that ever been

suggested before and is this something that could be implemented. Sort of like a complex movement Gizmo or something like that.

The starting point being the Set Gizmo position and then modifying that orientation and position in the timeline.

It seems to me that if it was that easy it would have been done

already but I had to ask. I have been here less than a year. 

 

Thank you.

Yes it was asked about 5 mins after the Gizmo first appeared in one of the updates ;) 

It would make a huge difference to the animations available but again it was considered too hard to achieve at the time.

No harm in reminding Ben of these things from time to time though ;)

Like alternative camera movement options, this requires lots of math that I either never quite understood, or have forgotten. At some point, hopefully, I will have time to spend on both problems. I do not anticipate it being soon, however.

In a parallel universe a guy called Alan Turing is working on the most important job he will ever do - creating an animatable gizmo for Moviestorm ;)
