I don't know if this has been asked before but I think we could control the speed of the entire animation with a special graph...with a multiplier that would multiply the 'rate of change' of every motion, morph etc of every object, light, camera, etc.

So, we would have a graph with a straight line in y=multiplier=1 and x=time, and we could move areas of that curve up and down, thus changing the multiplier and changing the rate of change of everything. When the curve is over 1 everything changes faster, when the curve is under 1 everything changes slower...easily getting matrix style effects...

and maybe add the option to select which items were affected by this multiplier, so we could exclude a camera for example.

If this already exists please spank me. :hey:

sorry but I forgot to ask...well...I know nobody will answer this, because beta testers are not allowed to, but hey I have to try...

will it be as easy as I suggested?
