Issue of extracting controllers with master properties

Post by tao1022 » Tue Nov 24, 2020 1:38 am

Hi Duduf

Thanks for providing this amazing tool case for us.

I had an issue when I want to extract the controllers by using master properties. Actually, it's not an issue, it can be called workflow optimizing suggestion.

So, basically, when I extract the controllers from the nested comp, it extracts everything, which is fine normally.

However, when I have a complex rigging with a whole body, 2d sliders, etc, it will load all corresponding properties to essential graphics panel. Then, when I drag this comp to a new comp, it freezes and crashes eventually...... I think it's due to the massive properties it has to load in the master properties list.

So, my question is, is it possible to specify the controllers I want to extract and let Duik only extract those ones rather than everything?

Hope it's not a complex one, haha.

For the moment I don't think you can extract only a selection of controllers but master properties for Extract Controllers is going to be improved on next versions of Duik ;)
