In making he tutorials, the main bottleneck in terms of time taken was editing constraints. They are both complex and difficult to manage.
This release addresses this problem with the Pivot Editor GUI.
Here's how to use it to tune a broken knee.
Spin & Swap
One of the main reasons to want to edit constraint pivots is to align the Twist axis with the main rotation of a knee or elbow.
If the pivots face in opposite directions, orientations can be un-mirrored with the
Channel Box Co-op
Tuning limits alongside pivots works well too, middle-click drag attributes from the Channel Box like you normally would, whilst dragging in the UI to compensate.
Use the snap option to make precise adjustment to specific angles.
Trajectories used to follow the scene wherever it went. Now they'll stay put, where they belong.
This fixes a minor annoyance you may have noticed, of the outline of spheres visible in shaded mode.
Floating Server Details
When you first lease a licence from your licence server, the IP and port details are stored on the local machine for quicker access the next time.
However, if you then later needed to change those details, then any local machine previously leasing a licence would not be able to update their details.
This has now been fixed!
