About this page

Hi there,

This is the homepage of Joshua Leung (Aligorith) on Blender's Wiki. If you've followed a link from one of the 2.4x release logs here, scroll down to the "Completed Projects" section (or on these links to go to the logs for 2.43, 2.44, 2.46, or 2.47). This page has somewhat "grown" over the years since the time when those links were originally published, and now includes quick-links to various projects and notes I've written here over the years.

A bit about myself for the curious: I've been a Blender user since 2004, and a core developer since 2006. As you'll find on this page (and those linked from it), I'm the maintainer/developer of the Animation System and Grease Pencil, as well as laying the groundwork for the Bullet RigidBody integration, and work on other areas including the Outliner and Transform Tools.

Cool Stuff

Useful Stuff

  • Generic Widget API - useful for things like drawing a "transform box" to define a region to edit (with handles to move/scale/rotate)
  • Editable Bone Paths (kindof falls under cool stuff, though is more of a pragmatic issue)
  • Better ghosting/visualisation of rigs (i.e. make it easier to have setups where you can just click on the mesh to select parts of the rig)

Unlikely to be implemented
