Settings for interacting with Blender data

auto_keying_mode

Mode of automatic keyframe insertion for Objects and Bones (default setting used for new Scenes)

Type

enum in [‘ADD_REPLACE_KEYS’, ‘REPLACE_KEYS’], default ‘ADD_REPLACE_KEYS’

collection_instance_empty_size

Display size of the empty when new collection instances are created

Type

float in [0.001, inf], default 1.0

fcurve_new_auto_smoothing

Auto Handle Smoothing mode used for newly added F-Curves

  • NONE None, Automatic handles only take immediately adjacent keys into account.

  • CONT_ACCEL Continuous Acceleration, Automatic handles are adjusted to avoid jumps in acceleration, resulting in smoother curves. However, key changes may affect interpolation over a larger stretch of the curve.

Type

enum in [‘NONE’, ‘CONT_ACCEL’], default ‘CONT_ACCEL’

fcurve_unselected_alpha

Amount that unselected F-Curves stand out from the background (Graph Editor)

Type

float in [0.001, 1], default 0.25

grease_pencil_default_color

Color of new annotation layers

float array of 4 items in [0, inf], default (0.38, 0.61, 0.78, 0.9)

grease_pencil_eraser_radius

Radius of eraser ‘brush’

Type

int in [1, 500], default 25

grease_pencil_euclidean_distance

Distance moved by mouse when drawing stroke to include

Type

int in [0, 100], default 2

grease_pencil_manhattan_distance

Pixels moved by mouse per axis when drawing stroke

Type

int in [0, 100], default 1

keyframe_new_handle_type

Handle type for handles of new keyframes

  • FREE Free, Completely independent manually set handle.

  • ALIGNED Aligned, Manually set handle with rotation locked together with its pair.

  • VECTOR Vector, Automatic handles that create straight lines.

  • AUTO Automatic, Automatic handles that create smooth curves.

  • AUTO_CLAMPED Auto Clamped, Automatic handles that create smooth curves which only change direction at keyframes.

Type

enum in [‘FREE’, ‘ALIGNED’, ‘VECTOR’, ‘AUTO’, ‘AUTO_CLAMPED’], default ‘AUTO_CLAMPED’

keyframe_new_interpolation_type

Interpolation mode used for first keyframe on newly added F-Curves (subsequent keyframes take interpolation from preceding keyframe)

  • CONSTANT Constant, No interpolation, value of A gets held until B is encountered.

  • LINEAR Linear, Straight-line interpolation between A and B (i.e. no ease in/out).

  • BEZIER Bezier, Smooth interpolation between A and B, with some control over curve shape.

  • SINE Sinusoidal, Sinusoidal easing (weakest, almost linear but with a slight curvature).

  • QUAD Quadratic, Quadratic easing.

  • CUBIC Cubic, Cubic easing.

  • QUART Quartic, Quartic easing.

  • QUINT Quintic, Quintic easing.

  • EXPO Exponential, Exponential easing (dramatic).

  • CIRC Circular, Circular easing (strongest and most dynamic).

  • BACK Back, Cubic easing with overshoot and settle.

  • BOUNCE Bounce, Exponentially decaying parabolic bounce, like when objects collide.

  • ELASTIC Elastic, Exponentially decaying sine wave, like an elastic band.

Type

enum in [‘CONSTANT’, ‘LINEAR’, ‘BEZIER’, ‘SINE’, ‘QUAD’, ‘CUBIC’, ‘QUART’, ‘QUINT’, ‘EXPO’, ‘CIRC’, ‘BACK’, ‘BOUNCE’, ‘ELASTIC’], default ‘BEZIER’

Toggle whether the material is linked to object data or the object block

  • OBDATA Object Data, Toggle whether the material is linked to object data or the object block.

  • OBJECT Object, Toggle whether the material is linked to object data or the object block.

Type

enum in [‘OBDATA’, ‘OBJECT’], default ‘OBDATA’

node_margin

Minimum distance between nodes for Auto-offsetting nodes

Type

int in [0, 255], default 80

object_align

When adding objects from a 3D View menu, either align them with that view or with the world

  • WORLD World, Align newly added objects to the world coordinate system.

  • VIEW View, Align newly added objects to the active 3D View direction.

  • CURSOR 3D Cursor, Align newly added objects to the 3D Cursor’s rotation.

Type

enum in [‘WORLD’, ‘VIEW’, ‘CURSOR’], default ‘WORLD’

sculpt_paint_overlay_color

Type

float array of 3 items in [0, inf], default (0.0, 0.0, 0.0)

undo_memory_limit
