Well, you can imagine i was quite surprised when I found that
stuff, and saw its actual usefulness. There is no doubt that
parenting is mostly a sufficient grouping feature, though, even
more as it establishes a clear hierarchy between the objects,
which is maybe even more useful than conventional grouping, where
all objects are treated 'equal'.
Still, I also think this code won't hurt, so i propose it should
be re-incorporated into the next release, after solving the
'double ALT-G' issue (clear location/clear group).
I've also seen the Group keys stuff, after uncommenting the
group buttons in buttons.c. I was able to give groups names,
insert group keys, which leads to a menu appearing in the
animation buttons containing options like Sta:, End:...
It seems though that this is not yet implemented? Groups and
group keys/IPOs don't appear in the IPO editor, or in the OOPS
Maybe you can enlighten me more on this :)
