Ver 1.20 (February 20, 2011)

Additional features

  • Methassequoia file output (share only)

    • Methassequoia file number output
  • Kota sequoia file loading related
    • Support for vertex color loading of methassequoia files
    • When the vertex color of the methassequoia file is read, the vertex color output to the X file is supported.
    • Methassequoia file loading for flat shading
    • Support for loading mirroring models for methassequoia files
  • Rendering function (share only. Currently, only "AVI file output", "consecutive image output", and "view resize" can be performed. )
  • AVI file output (share only. Outputs the selected animation to an AVI file. Choose a codec then, but be aware that depending on the type, you may not be able to save it well. (There is also uncompressed), and depending on the environment of the PC, it may not be possible to output at a large screen size. )
    • 32-bit AVI file output support
    • Split file output support
    • Number of loops can be specified
  • Consecutive image output (share only. Outputs the selected animation as an image file with a specified number of frames. Depending on the pc environment, you may not be able to output it with a large screen size. )
    • 7 types of output image formats
    • Continuous image output transmits background (PNG file fixed)
  • X-file related
    • When reading a model from an X-file, each axis reversal, axis change, and face inversion can be set.

    • Support for output of Lightwave-enabled X files (new coordinate format output)
    • Mesh storage support for specified frames when outputting X files
  • Icon size and text display switching for each toolbar (Until now, we have set the settings in bulk in the environment settings, but from Ver 1.2 you can set it individually. Right-clicking on the toolbar will display a menu where you can change it. )
  • Toolbar buttons can now be re-positioned with images and text
  • Added "Rotate Text 90 Degrees" to the right-click menu of the toolbar
  • Light settings (Added light settings to the Environment panel. You can change the direction of the light and the color of the light (D, A, S). The direction of the light changes by dragging the mouse over the control. )
  • Get and set camera status from environment panel
  • Center bone flag (New symmetric and center bone settings are added. In the default, it is a symmetric bone, but this is the same function as before. When set to center bone, posture reversal is possible when editing animations. However, this feature is not yet complete, only X inversion is supported, and depending on the posture, it does not flip well. Try not to use it if it doesn't work. )
  • The center flag has been set on the bone so that it can be used, such as posture inversion.
  • Add "Bone Advanced" to the menu when right-clicking a node in a bone configuration
  • IK transmission restrictions (until now, IK has been concatenated to floating bones, but can now be stopped by any bone. Select a bone during animation, and when you do "IK Lock" in the right-click menu, a lock mark will be displayed. )
  • Bone position display when editing animation (position and rotation are now displayed in the vector panel (when absolutely specified). It is also possible to operate with vector panels. However, the parameters you work with are the local parameters of the bones. )
  • Flagging whether text should be fully selected by automatic text selection with the mouse
  • Automatic duplicate of weight boxes to mirrored bones (If you check the box creation panel when creating a box, a box with symmetrical bones is automatically created. )
  • Click "Ctrl" and click on the object list to select all vertices
