Arithmetic Operations to Input Fields
« on: April 12, 2018, 04:24:39 pm »
It would be nice to be able to add, subtract, multiply, or divide inside input fields for different elements. For example, if I have an input field that reads '1.52' and I want half the value, it would be convenient to simply add a '/2' after that value, press enter, and generate '.76', etc.

I'll pop in with my standard "Cinema 4D can do that and therefore if keyshot could work that in somehow that would be awesome" comment.

copy/paste

Sorry fellas, but this is actually a really good request :)

Pretty standard in most CAD packages as well.

I think this fits in well with the suggestion to be able to put in alternate units, i.e. scene is in cm but you could input 1" (or 1 in) and it would give you 2.54 cm.
