Animation Feature List
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:05:10 am »
Hi there,

I am having great difficulty with the animation list on the left hand side of the animation window. I spend time adding animations into folders to keep things neat and tidy, following the time line making it much easier for me to see the order of the events.

When I am happy with the order etc I file expecting that, when I re-open the BIP, all will be how I left it. This is not the case. The folders have been re-ordered in an arbitrary manner which I find exasperating!

Please tell me what I am doing wrong or if there is a setting/switch to ensure that the animation tree is left how I want it and not how KeyShot thinks I want it!

It's  KeyShot thing.  Many of us have been asking for the same as you- just let us set up our animation against our storyboard and then leave it alone!  On complex animations you just go nuts with the reordering that occurs when you reopen the bip.

We will fix this once and for all in the next update. At least you can drag and drop them back into place now.

Spoke too soon - drag and drop doesn't work for folders. We will work on that as well.

I am drag and dropping folders as well. It just takes time and a "dummy" folder to drop them into first. Once in the dummy folder they can be reordered by the order you drag them out of the dummy folder.

Regards,
Stuart

Don't forget to let us delete animates from folders without deleting the folder!
