Animation Manipulator

with this manipulator, you can't move components. you can't snap.

But you don't have to switch Translate and Rotate! that's all.

It's equivalent to the add transform, or better ?

what do you mean?
actually, it's worse than usual manipulator.
I made this because I'm lazy to use 2 manipulators.
It might be usuful in animation, but in many case, it's not better.

I wanted to say I like the Animator Manipulator, it's a nice companion to the vanilla manipulator within Softimage :)
Thank You !
