Option to disable "inner" Mapping handles in output transformation

Post by benkuper » Tue Oct 10, 2017 20:54

Hi,
What R5 introduced with the new mapping system is really great, except for the fact that most of the time, you only want to achieve simple 4 corners perspective mapping with no other "inner" deformation.
The concept of merging the 2 handles, the bigger one for perspective and the smaller one for adjustment is very convenient, but it quickly becomes very disturbing and annoying when you actually only want to use the outer handles.
I think that having either a "none" mode option alongside "linear" and "Bezier", or a separate option to hide those inner handles would be very much appreciated and save a lot of time when doing simple mappings, and be far more agreeable not having to check precisely if it's the bigger or smaller handle that has been selected.

Thanks for all your work,
Ben Kuper

Yeah, I agree that having to think about which box you're grabbing is not really ideal. Especially if the center one is more often than not the wrong one.

We'll take a look if this can be improved somehow.

Any update on this ?
Even just having a toggle to disable the mouse interaction and 50% alpha on those handles would be very much appreciated !
