The main view allows you to view and edit Driver F-Curves. An F-Curve has several key parts:
The curve defines the relationship between two properties: The current (driven) property (Y axis) and the driver (X axis).
Each point on the driver curve has a handle that helps determine the relationship between the two values. They can be selected and modified to change the shape of the curve.
See F-Curve Handles for more information.
See F-Curves for more info.
Normalize curves so the maximum and minimum points equal 1.0 and -1.0 respectively.
Automatically recalculate curve normalization on every curve edit. Disabling this setting may be useful to prevent curves from jumping after tweaking.
- Only Show Selected (mouse cursor icon)
Only include curves related to the selected objects and data.
- Show Hidden (dashed object icon)
Include curves from objects/bones that are not visible.
- Only Show Errors (warning triangle icon)
Only include curves and drivers that are disabled or have errors. Useful for debugging.
- Create Ghost Curves (square with curve icon)
Makes a visual indication in the background of the editor with a snapshot of the current state of the selected curves. This is useful to have a base for comparison on top of which to make edits.
- Filter (funnel icon)
- Type Filter
Filter curves by property type.
- Sort Data-Blocks (az icon)
Object data-blocks appear in alphabetical order, so that it is easier to find where they occur (as well as helping to keep the animation of related objects together).
This option may affect the playback speed for heavy scenes.
- Variable Fallback As Error
Normally, setting up fallback values for driver variables means that failing to evaluate the property does not constitute a driver evaluation error.
In some cases it can be useful to find drivers that would have failed if not for the fallback values. Enabling this option includes such drivers into the Only Show Errors filter. However, only actual failed drivers are underlined in red in the channel list.
