The tooltip for the "Track to" constraint says: "Legacy tracking constraint prone to twisting artifacts".

Why is it "legacy"? Has it been replaced with something else?

After some further research, I found that Joshua Leung added this text to source/blender/makesrna/intern/rna_constraint.c when he committed the new Damped track constraint, indicating that Track to has been superseded by Locked track and Damped track.

Of course I don't think anyone's about to deprecate Track to.

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah this should be removed.. after 6 years, locked track does a totally different thing - I was concerned I wasn't using best practices. Thanks @foobarbecue $\endgroup$
