Hi, I just started using PI about 6 months ago. It's really great and has become part of my core toolset. I make simple 2d based computer games with it. Have a couple of suggestions for future features:
1) A lot of the things I do need to loop. I realize that there are simple ways of doing this by rendering a sequence, then reloading it with a time offset. But I could really use a big red button that says 'LOOP THE WHOLE THING'... and the application would do it automatically.
2) Another thing that would be helpful for me would be having PI render to a cell grid: If your animation is 80x80 pxls and has 48frames, you could define an image size of 640x480 and have it lay each frame into an arrayed 8x6 grid. (Does that make sense?) As it is, I have to write Pshop scripts to do this, which is no big deal, but it would be nicer if the program could just spit it out as an array.
here's another suggestion.. and I hate to say this.
Please offer the use of a dongle.
either an existing one, I use a lightwave/DFX and a Mirage USB.
I'll buy even one, if offered.
I do lot's of freelance, using other studio machines. I carry a baggie filled with dongles.
It's my "tool kit". I'd love to use PI 3.5 freelanceing, too.
