Hello group.

I wondered what kind of features could render (pun not intended) our animations
easier.

There are certain situations where you DON'T want your animation render to
terminate, because of state dependent animations, negative clocks and rendered
file names not using the negative index for naming, and maybe other reasons.
where changing the initial_frame and initial_clock to restart from where it
stopped is not sufficient.

What i would introduce is a parse button, to the already present render, pause,
and stop controls.

The parse behaviour would be as follows :

try to parse the file at it is displayed on the editor.
In case of a parse error, the renderer will re-parse and render the file at its
last successful parse state version but with the clock running of course. and
display a colored warning, of course.

A companion feature would be : undo changes to last good parse state.

That's for today...

Have a nice day.
