Feature Request: Reverse Animation Progression

XYZ-Files with multiple geometries can be successively visualized with the Animation tool in the order they are given.

However, sometimes, e.g. in the case of IRC paths, it is beneficial to view the animation in reverse order.

Therefore, I would appreciate a “reverse” checkbox next to the “dynamic bonding” checkbox, which lets you toggle the progression direction of the animation between forward and reverse.

This is a nice idea, and to add to it, a checkbox for “boomerang” would be extremely cool for demonstrations too, where the animation would go alternately forwards and backwards in an endless loop.

Should be pretty easy. There was also a request to restrict the start and end frames, so I’ll tweak the UI:

  • popup menu “Direction” with (forward / reverse / boomerang) options
  • boxes for start / end frames
