                                  • view trajectories for animated objects / cameras etc

                                    if object transform has keys, it should have option to view trajectories. like other softwares.
                                    ideally, now a days, editing trajectory points directly is also possible in some softwares like maya and blender. that would be awesome.

                                    • linear interpoloation is killing me. please add bezier interpolation.

                                      self explanatory.... i mean, its hard to believe that someone animated lamp inside this. its too perfect / finised animation.

                                        Clara.io supports cubic animation already but it isn’t exposed via the UI. It is only supported right now if you import from FBX and Collada.

                                        You are right that we didn’t create the animation of the lamp inside of Clara.io. The lamp animation was created in Softimage and imported into Clara.io and then tweaked. The reason for this is that Clara.io does not yet support rigging and IK. Some details of how the lamp animation was made is available here on the Softimage mailing list:

                                        I believe will be great if clara provide more options for typology fonts

                                        • Light Specular Highlights - On & Off

                                          Add the ability to turn On and Off specular highlights from the light itself. Also the lights are not casting shadows properly and they tend to go on and off randomly without notice.
