Feature Request(Bug?) Effect Mode does not appear in multi-editor. Images Included

0 votes

The multi-editor is a great tool when combined at queries to make large scale changes to your project. We were using it recently and discovered a quirk that I believe was just an oversight in the UI.

The multi-editor doesn't let you edit the mode setting of an effect. However, it does like to edit Render/Bypass which you edit in the same place. Combined with the fact that mode defaults to "Define Custom" and not "Use Shareset" this makes it a PITA to actually change / setup an effect shareset on a large number of objects. As a workaround, everytime we update the shareset we change every object again but it leads to a lot of churn on the files.

You need to right click the effect name box. Should will see the Shareset/Custom options in the menu.

All I see is the option "Set Effect".
The UI does enable you to set the effect to a shareset. However, once you select a shareset you should have two options for mode.
"Define Custom" (Changes to the shareset won't propagate)
"Use Shareset" (Changes to the shareset propagate)

I don't see a way to toggle this specific setting.
Hey Bernard, sorry to ping you again but does my comment above make sense?
I'm not seeing the option to set the Shareset Mode anywhere in the multi-editor. Am I just being blind?
you are right, the Custom/Shareset only appear if:
 - 1 object is edited in Multi-Editor
 - all edited objects have the same Shareset

It does not appear if multiple objects are edited with "customs".
