3.1.x

3.1.2

Released: 23/11/18

Dependencies: MtoA 3.1.0.0, Arnold 5.2.0.0, VRay 4.04, Renderman 22.2, 3Delight 12.0.113, Redshift 2.6.27, Clarisse 3.6 SP4

  • refactored how attribute reformatting was handled post graph evaluation as the previous implementation was introducing issues with instanced fibres.

3.1.1

Released: 17/11/18

Dependencies: MtoA 3.1.0.0, Arnold 5.2.0.0, VRay 4.04, Renderman 22.2, 3Delight 12.0.113, Redshift 2.6.27, Clarisse 3.6 SP4

  • resolved an interpolation issue when exporting additional Arnold user attributes.
  • updated reference node to postpone geometry transformation until full graph evaluation has completed.

3.1.0

Released: 16/11/18

Dependencies: MtoA 3.1.0.0, Arnold 5.2.0.0, VRay 4.04, Renderman 22.2, 3Delight 12.0.113, Redshift 2.6.27, Clarisse 3.6 SP4

  • updated to VRay Next (4.x).
  • updated to Renderman 22.2.
  • updated to Redshift 2.6.27.
  • Redshift support for user attributes. Float and Vector as Constant, Uniform and Vertex will be exported - be aware that Redshift currently only supports a single value per strand, even for Vertex attributes.
  • added a brush falloff UI control in the Groom Tool window for more precise control over falloff along the length of a strand.
  • Scatter will now generate du and dv vectors when generating points from a mesh to help with vector displacement. These are NOT inherited by default by the Grow node but can do so if added to the Inherit Attributes parameter.
  • added a check for Redshift API version parity and will warn the users if it doesn’t match.
  • each new Scatter node is now created with a unique random seed.
  • added customMotionStartAndEnd parameter to Arnold DSO to specify exact motion_start and motion_end parameters for generated geometry. This expects an array of two floats (or more, but only the first two values will be used).
  • Int parameters can be toggled to expression inputs.
  • Scatter Seed parameter can now take an expression to create varying distributions on a per frame basis.
  • Node Inspector parameter widgets will now default to expression input fields when expressions are being used.
  • added a Min Clipping Level to Attribute Paint viewport display and renamed Clipping Level to Max Clipping Level.
  • fixed Graph Editor High DPI rendering issues.
  • removed redundant PTC command line tools.
  • brush sizes will be maintained between Comb and Scult style tools.
  • licensing tools updated to RLM v12.4.
  • fixed an issue with nan’s being introduced into custom attributes for Arnold.
  • fixed a bug where Yeti was trying to evaluating parameters that have been removed since previous releases.
