Default Re: Comments from the NEWBIE of the year

I think your ideas for selecting are good but would be confusing to use - especially for beginners. I agree that some kind of 'paint' select would be nice (dragging over the surfaces you want) - I have some ideas for this.

Objects can be rotated around their centre point - tick File->general->settings->rotate about object centres.

Lights - yes.

Switching between walk and spin - yes I agree that the jerking view can be annoying. You can tilt the view in walk mode using control+up/down.

Nurbs - sorry, won't happen. Subdivision surfaces are the way to go. Nurbs are nasty, unintuitive (my opinions!) and being used less and less. Subdivision surfaces are much logical, and easier to control.

Animation - yes

Better lights and animation are planned.
