Hooray! UC Doctoral Scholarship

After a few months of waiting, I finally heard back from the scholarships office today: I've been awarded a UC Doctoral Scholarship for the next 3 years :)   Yay!

Apologies for any broken/missing images on some of the posts here.

Apparently I managed to accidentally clobber them when adjusting the wrong settings somewhere when trying to figure out why the heck the folder associated with these had just jumped all the way up to the top o the list all of a sudden (it should've been at the very bottom and out of sight!). Gah!

In the meantime, I'm going back through trying to restore broken links (by manually re-adding the offending pics). Fortunately they're all still there, though annoyingly there's no one-click "link them all back up again" magic button  :/


EDIT (2am):  Phew! I've just finished going through checking for broken image links and getting everything fixed up again. Along the way, I took the chance to make a few images a bit larger too for good measure :)

If you do find any broken image links/placeholders, please let me know and I'll try and fix them. Strangely, there were still a few images which I seem to have uploaded, but don't seem to be attached to any posts with broken links (at least the ones I've checked)...

Git Tip - Reverting latest bad commit(s), and which have also been pushed already

By and large, working with Git is "not that scary" (TM) once you figure out a safe subset of commands which will let you achieve what you want to do during a typical work session.

However, from time to time, especially when effectively "working blind" via commandline, things go wrong. Really really wrong.

WIP Bugfix Patch - Displaying shortcuts set using WM_OT_context_* operators

This evening, I decided to spend some time working on a (what I assumed) would be a neat little fix to a problem that's been bugging me for a while (and apparently has also been noticed by others too, as can be seen in this bug report).

Namely, there are many properties that have hotkeys assigned to toggle/cycle through their values, but there is no easy way to see what hotkeys have been assigned for that purpose. Sure, you can fire up the keymaps editor in the User Preferences, but it's quite tricky digging around in there to find what you want, if you even know where to start looking...

Depsgraph - Overview of Design + Goals

Phew! I've just finished writing up a doc giving a rough overview of where we're going with the depsgraph design, and the types of things it aims to do (i.e. problems it should solve, etc.). There may be a few things I've glossed over here and there (and it may ramble a bit at the start a bit), but it should go a long way towards explaining what's going on.

Check out (and join) the discussion and document (check the attachment there) over on the bf-animsys mailing list:
