I think what would be handy in the Script editor view is having a button to clear all animations from the timeline aswell as the individuals which we have already.

I say this because I decided to reload a scene I made which has the characters I need, all settings correct, but wanted a clean timeline. I know we can save the sets and characters to stock, but having this Clear all animation feature woulkd save the time of having to reload all the characters, set and lighting settings.

For a workaround - if you save your set to stock, then load it back from stock, loading a new set clears the timeline - so this would achieve what you are after.

I so totally second this!

I've used this workaround before, but I seem to remember that it doesn't carry across the lighting settings. (And those lighting controls are a nightmare since the old lighting system was got rid of sad.gif )

As far as I am aware, the bug with the lighting not being saved to stock sets correctly is fixed within 1.5.2 (possibly 1.5.1, even). It seems to save and reload correctly for me, though.

Ah, OK - I never realised a "set" included lighting, other than from props.

Wish I'd known that now... smile.gif

There should be an option for this in the next version of Moviestorm. It will be on the right click menu one has that can copy or delete scenes, in the script editor.

Edit: And no, I don't know when the next version will be available.
