That's why I thought they would make sense. YOu don't have to use them if you don't need them, but for animating certain things you set a range and use the slider.
For the NLA influence IPO its a percentage range so it definetly fits in there!
broken wrote:About visualisation of this NLA sliders idea, rather than changing the NLA strip to another colour, it would be cool to show the influence curve on the strip itself. You can find this idea in non-linear editors, using curves on strips to control fading, volume envelopes for audio, etc.
Well thats what followed the change of colour comment in my first message....

guess my posts really did have a thorax effect on people!
