I’m working with the Anim Picker, and the animators noticed that when using it, you lose focus on Maya. So for example, if you click on a button in the Anim Picker, and then hit “s” to key, it won’t work. They have to click back in the viewport before they can use standard hotkeys.
But in the Synoptic tool, you retain focus in Maya, and the hotkeys continue to work.
I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed this. Are there are any workarounds? Could the type of window be modified to be similar to the Synoptic?
The Synoptic is a pyqt.showDialog() window. Anim Picker seems to be a QtWidgets.QGraphicsView window? Maybe this type of window is necessary for the polygons to be drawn inside. But it’s a productivity loss for animators.
Any ideas? Thanks!
