How complex is your scene and what time plugin need for pre-processing? ... next release is going to have multitherad pre-processing who is a lot faster if you have objects with a lot of polygons.

And if you are rendering and animation with only camera, objects or lights transformations (without object deformations or dinamics) you can set the render mode to "update only transformations", what allow to the plugin render the sequence without reloading the scene for each frame.

Ah cool. I'll look into that then. It's very simple scene. one object turntable is all.

Nice. definitively a useful feature.

I could not find anything in the docs about it. Pretty important for rendering models from CAD packages.

Got it running on 275 now, thanks Juanjo


I am working in the support of vertex normal maps, I hope to have it done soon, for the next plugin release.

Polytek


Yes, you are right, at some point I am going to add limits to all plugin parameteres, it is in my roadmap.

-Juanjo


Sorry to come back on this topic Juanjo, is it possible to make some kind off slider setup (sorta like the property panel in oct stand alone) in the nodal view for easy selecting, inputting capability with upper and down limit where the input has no influence any more, also a range from 0 to 1 is very limited because you have to dail with decimals, is a valua between 0 and 100% not easier to work with?

Any kind off material view possible in the future?

I dont want to sound rude are impatienced, maybe i am wrong about some views how to make it easier to select and handle materials....just an idee

Highest regards,

Juanjo, any way you can add 32bit PNG save option in next release? Pretty please.. with sugar
on top.

The alphas in TGA's are perfect - and ultimately yields the same result after separating in PS...
but with PNG, this is already done for me.. and when we are talking about many images.......
please add png32 if you can.

Shit - I think the last time I touched TGA's was when I was dumping them on a bernoulli back
in '94... just kidding.. they have their place.. but they are so 90's! :lol:

Are EXR's coming?.. sorry if this has all been discussed.. do not remember seeing anything about
exr or png32...

Speaking of saving images -- sometimes (no rhyme or reason it seems) I can't save an image...
no save dialog pops up.. closing IPR and reopening did not even fix one time.. had to reload
scene (LW - not IPR)... has anyone else had this happen?
