Auto Rotation Tool

Hello,

Can the Auto Rotation Tool be used to generate an animation in a separate file - animated gif, avi, mov, povray etc?

A suggestion: I think it would be helpful to have the slider bars marked at the midpoint to more easily gauge how far you have moved it to the right or to the left.

Thanks,

Steve

No, not yet.

Good suggestion. I put both into the feature tracker.

Thanks,

P.S. Apologies for the slow response, I just returned from vacation.

This was suggested some time ago, it should not be too difficult to
implement but I have not found the time to do it yet. I agree that it
would be a great addition - animation still needs more attention.
Especially producing animations using Avogadro.

That is a great suggestion, I just made a commit that changes the
sliders tick interval. They now have three tick marks - one in the
centre. Let me know if this is what you had in mind.

Thanks,
