RELEASE HISTORY


1.9
Fixed Stability issue on Mac OSX with texture loading.
Fixed issue with sky shadow density not working properly.
Fixed shadows appearing on backface polys.
Added an option for POM bump mapping to generate normal.
Fix Bug Crashing on sky creating with high end nvidia GPUs.
Added default Sky option (Setting a sky to default means that any materials without a sky link will use the default sky).
Added Sharpen post FX.
Standard render post FX now done on GPU (massive speed up), Sky calculations improved providing better quality, Removed Sky Creation Tab as the sky maps are now created in realtime from a LatLong input map, Fixed graphic issue with older GPUs (hopefully Iris gpu too).
Standard render now replaces original alpha channel as this is used for data during post fx calculation.
SuperSampling AA added to Hardware render(use with care as renders at twice resolution and scales down) and viewport.
Filmic Tonemapping Added and now default.
Fixed bug with mapping (Tile,seamless) so viewport matches standard render.
Added basic material converter PB<>C4d (not perfect because C4D materials are very flexible but should get you about 90% there in most cases).
Tweaked watermark so it can be set as a scale to the output imagesize.
Various other minor fixes and tweaks.
R18 build added(*Removed R15 build due to R18 and plan to support last 3 C4D releases this may change if there is enough call for a R15 build).
