Really nice work, sachem! But I think you need to have someone clean up the spilled wine on the table in the living room ;)

No, this build doesn't have an option for rendering a movie of the depth channel.

The current development release is v1.01.1329, July 7, 2018: http://www.anim8or.com/download/preview/files/animcl1329.zip

These notes are for the development branch of Anim8or, currently labeled v1.01.xxxx. As changes are verified many but not all will be rolled int the main branch, v1.00x.

The following is a cumulative list of major changes to this development branch since the latest "official" release, v1.00b.

Major changes for build 1329 dated July 7, 2018:
ART: Add multi-threaded rendering. Increases speed up rendering up to 8X (with an 8 core CPU).
ART: Improve FastgAA rendering speed and accuracy. (depth, light-mask, normals, materials)
Normal Maps: Fix problem in ART Normal Map rendering.
Normal Maps: Add new option to swap U coordinate direction.
Fix ART bug: where something marked Don't Cast Shadows do so anyway.
Fix #101-023: Ctrl-A Doesn't Select Faces in Groups.

Previous v1.01.xxxx releases:

Major changes for build 1325 dated May 30, 2018:
Delete Unreferenced Materials: new command.
Improve texture file searches: fix "./" file path bug.
ASL Materials: Add numerous new members, include two sided support. See the ASL spec for details.

Major changes for build 1321 dated March 15, 2018:
Fix crash loading project introduced by cl-1320.
ASL Files: Add support for reading text files using GPScan token scanner. See this topic for more details.

Major changes for build 1318 dated January 25, 2018:
Scene Editor: Added Element Folders which all you to group element in the track window for easier management of large projects.
- Fixed several minor Undo/Redo bugs such as Element name changes not being applied.

Major changes for build 1317 dated January 14, 2018:
Fix #101-017: Issues with Groups and Layers.
   Use group's layer instead of each component's layer when displaying or selecting a group.
   Use the group number of the components in a group when creating a group.
   For multiple group numbers, use any one of them.
Fix #101-018: Reading a .an8 file with a script-based parameteric shape in a group crashes.
Fix #101-019: Script controllers for scene morph targets with aren't saved in .an8 file.
IK effector: Change to not move location of effector unless the user have specifically moved it
(i.e. not when it was moved because it couldn't be reached when the whole figure was moved).
Connected Face Extrusion: Expand cases when new faces are kept parallel to original faces.
Inset Tool: Change to inset edges parallel and equal distance to original edges. Previous behavior (that moved edges relative to the length of each individual edge) is available using the Shift key.
Scene Editor: Add menu command Edit->Bones->KeySelectedControllers.
Fix #101-020: Object Editor: Copy/Pasting a Group with a sub Group doesn't work correctly.


Major changes for build 1314 dated December 20, 2017:
Depth Channel: You can now make movies of the depth channel.
Depth Channel: Fixed small bugs in Z-near/Z-far dialogs as they relate to rendering.
Frame Viewports: Hot-key f changed to frame only the focus view. Hot-key Ctrl-Sh-F added to frame all views.
User Lights: Added an option Options->UseDefaultLighting to disable user lights and use default lighting in the scene editor:
CAD: Display the angle between selected adjacent edges.
CAD: Highlight values in orange when the mouse moves over the component.
Material Samples: Fix bug where they didn't render when layer 0 was hidden.

Major changes for build 1312 dated December 11, 2017:
Fix #100-010:GLSL materials with more than 4 textures are broken.
Fix #100-011:Rendering a scene a second time hangs
Fix #100-012:Shape rotations don't follow object coordinates in object editor.
Fix #100-013:Object/Move command uses World coordinates when Object coordinates are selected.
Fix #100-014: Shell and Extrude Connected commands can cause spikes.
Fix #100-015: Sliding Resized Figures with IK.
Scene Editor: Add Copy/Paste for Scene Elements.
Object editor: Add Build->SplitSolids command that separates unconnected parts of a mesh or subdivision surface.
Pivot: Add Edit->Pivot->CenterPivot, AlignWithShape, AlignWithWorld commands.
Point Editor: Implement Edit->Rotate->Rotate commands.
Text Object: Add default font to project: type-face, size, italic, bold

ASL Scripts / Re: ASL File import?
« on: December 11, 2017, 11:01:40 pm »
Do you mean reading input files? If so, text or binary? I have a scanner format that reads tokens from text files (similar to parsing a compiler's input).

Anim8or v1.0 Discussion Forum / Re: Idea for Skinning
« on: December 10, 2017, 06:35:29 pm »
THoS: that's a good idea. I guess I hadn't thought much about it but you make a very good point. Do you have any suggestions as how to add it?

One idea is to add [Front] and [Back] buttons like in the Object editor to enable which sides are painted, which is a little strange since you probably seldom want to paint only the back. Another idea is to only paint on the front side. Another idea is to use a Shift or Ctrl key to control whether you paint just the front or both the front and the back.

Let me know what you think (and thanks for the nice comments about Anim8or )

Anim8or v1.0 Discussion Forum / Re: Frame miss behaves in 2 views?
« on: December 10, 2017, 06:25:25 pm »
The way it works now:

Lower case f frames all non hidden objects is all views, including any camera views. Upper case F frames selected objects in the focus view.

Here are some possible changes to how it works:

1a) Don't change camera views.
1b) Don't change camera views unless the camera view is the focus view.
2) For lower case f[ don't change the non-focus views.
3) Leave it how it is now.

Let me know what you think.

Sure, Trevor. Sorry I didn't do it this time.

OK, I see now.  It isn't presently possible to render a movie of the depth channel in Anim8or, but I'll look into adding it.

Rendering uses the depth settings from the scene. The Z limits are used by both the scanline renderer and the OpenGL renderer. The ART renderer doesn't have a depth buffer precision problem so the limits are always 0 to infinity.

Repeating this from the other thread so you don't miss it:

Here's a first pass at implementing Copy/Paste for elements in scenes: Build v1.01.1311. It uses Edit->CopyElements Ctrl+Shift+C and Edit->PasteElements Ctrl+Shift+V menu commands.

It does not copy hierarchical relationships or keys, but just the basic elements. When pasting the global location, orientation and scale are preserved. Name conflicts are resolved by creating new names for the pasted elements. I hope this helps.

Hmmm. Looks like I need to scale the IK movement along with the figure's scale factor. I'll look into it.

fefe01 and Nellucnaiv: I don't mind constructive criticism. It helps me improve Anim8or. If you are having a problem or have a suggestion, feel free to post something about it.

I can't promise to address all of your concerns, but if I don't know about them they'll never be fixed :)
