In Shot Designer

Thank you for your very detailed reply to my initial post in this topic. You painted a very appealing picture of what Shot Designer with its new 3D Animation capability will look like. And I for one am eagerly looking forward to working with it. That said, I have two requests: 1) It would be nice to be able to turn off the 3D view up in the corner when I'm in 2D mode. And vice versa. Yes, I see the utility of being able to see both views simultaneously. However, I would like to suggest there is also a benefit in being able to focus on one task at a time. Yes, I know many people rave about the benefits of multitasking. I am not one of them. Quite simply, for me, I do my best work when I can mentally focus on one thing at a time. Thus I would love to be able to create my camera plots or overhead blocking diagrams without having to in any way see, or even think about, the framing or composition of my shots. Of course I will at times turn on the little 3D view up in the corner. But only when I wish to see it. Not when I’m actually creating my diagrams. 2) You mentioned that you think the timeline “is simply too crude in the current version.” I respectfully disagree. I actually think it works quite well. Whenever I show any of my collaborators an animation they always Oooh and Aaah and say, "That's so cool." I'm sure the new version will be more impressive in terms of features. But for me the current timeline has worked extremely well. I consider it a valuable tool. That said, a feature I've wanted for a long time is to be able to play the animation of several shots in the timeline, or the entire timeline, in succession--without having to manually start each one. This would allow me to quickly get a sense of both the character and camera movement for an entire scene, or part of a scene. That would be both helpful and useful. Thank you in advance for considering my requests.
