3D-Coat - Update 4.5 BETA3

Fixes

  • Fixed problems related to rename/move/duplicate items in folders. Need toarwa be carefully checked anyway.
  • A lot of paint problems solved.

New

  • HDR support for panorama images. Panoramas will be auto leveled now. Andrew included several panorama images into the Panoramas folder. A new default panorama image is set now.
  • View separate channels - color/specular color/gloss/metalness

Improvements

  • Materials in version 4.5 will not destroy 4.1 materials and vice versa. New mats has an extension that is called .pbrm instead of .xml.
    You are still able to switch back to the old materials - To do this use Edit -> Convert materials
  • Top row conditions are now the same like in materials. Realtime preview should work correctly for both - paint conditions and materials. 
  • UDIM naming (That is used in MARI) for UV-sets with tiled import is supported now. Fixed seams problem related to tiled import. 

Infos

The translation from new HLSL shaders to GLSL were started. This will lead in a working GL version. The Mac/Linux beta builds can be released after the shader conversion. This will happen soon.
