[FR] Join Skatter and Render List in the same window

Postby JQL » Wed Dec 17, 2014 1:22 pm

As title using a Tab for each.

I don't think having a lot of windows floating around is benefitial, specially if you consider that they will, most probably, cohexist with render windows.

Thanks,

João

I agree it would be good to have the render list and window linked somehow.

I had a similar thought about the UI:

viewtopic.php?f=393&t=60206#p549571

I think your proposal is better looking but would still open a new window.

Maybe the General settings should be always there and the two tabs I propose here would be under them.

Like SU native materials browser where you have a material name and then a select and edit tab.

Select would be skater list, edit would be skatter settings.

One question I have because my list is not updating: Editing settings is it autosaving them? Or you have to hit "generate" for the current skatter to be updated? And if you "Generate" does this create a new Skatter or does it overwrite the current if the name is the same?

Having a tab is a really good idea.

You have to click on "generate" to update it.
As long as you don't close the dialog, it'll overwrite over and over (or it should, I think I fixed it since the alpha 4).
When you edit one (from the list, or from the context-menu in the viewport), it'll overwrite the edited one.

That's what I thought and how I like it too... :D
