Auto Key for Spine Essential

July 25th, 2014

Previously restricted only to Spine Professional users, we've now enabled Auto Key for Spine Essential users, starting in version 1.9.08+. This is a bit of a "thank you" to our users for supporting us. You guys rock!

Automatic keying can speed up your workflow because a key is set any time you make a keyable change. This also means you will never scrub the timeline and accidentally lose a pose you forgot to key. It can be very helpful, but keep it in mind while it's on so you don't insert unwanted keys.

IK revamped and documented

July 21st, 2014

We released IK a month ago in a bit of a rush because we didn't want you to have to wait while we had a short vacation. To celebrate being back, we've revamped IK so it works as we intended from start to finish. We've also written proper documentation for the feature.

We have some catching up to do, but I'll start tackling IK runtime implementations as soon as possible. The IK code for spine-libgdx has been committed, but it won't be much use until Spine exports the IK data. Soon!
