Hi, in the desktop i can playback the thumbnail (spacebar key), the problem is i will play the thumbnail under my current cursor position NOT the SELECTED thumbnail ? is there any preference i can set to switch this behaviour?
Let say i’m hovering a thumbnail (clip) , i can play it by pressing spacebar directly , but what if i want to scrub it first coz i don’t want it to play from the beginning. While doing the scrubbing , my cursor will definetely then out of thumbnail. it might accidentally hovering (on top of) other clip/thumbnail. now pressing spacebar will definetly play the wrong clip. so everytime i scrub the clip, i got to reposition the cursor on top of the clip over and over again.
So i think it’s more usefull to change the behaviour. Don’t you think ?
I understand that you you think that selecting the clips and keeping the focus there for playing/scrubbing should be correct.
Smoke is very much context driven, so the focus is actually where ever you hover the cursor in the application.
The same is for the ConnectFX.
It basically means that you don’t have to keep clicking and selecting things to do operations such as play clips and assign players.
There is currently no preference to switch this behaviour.
Thanks for the explaination. Yes i understand about the ‘focus’ thing. But is this workflow fit the need of most users ? i don’t know, maybe i’m the only one who request it lol. I just feel this is slowing down my workflow. So the thing is the design has to support better workflow.
