version 4.5 changes (22.05.2007)


[new] Group Picking


The picking feature "Pick TAB specific object" does now also work for groups:
When clicking on a model on the stage, while this feature is switched on, the 3DPI searches up the node hierachy of that model and selects the first node found, which is of type #group .


[new] Hilite Group


You can now also 'hilite a group' for better identification: As long as you click on the Hilite Button while a group is selected, the 3DPI hilites all models, that are children of this group down in the complete hierachy of the group.

You can hilite a group in the Group-Tab as well as in the parent-child-hierachy in the Member-Tab:

Example: When clicking on the hilite button of the group "furnitures" of the above example, the 3DPI hilites all children down in the hierachy, so in this case "table_1" as well as "flowers".


[new] Hilite Modelresource


You can now also 'hilite a Modelresource' for better identification: As long as you click on the Hilite Button while a ModelResource is selected, the 3DPI hilites all models, that currently use the selected ModelResource.


[new] Hilite Shader


You can now also 'hilite a shader' for better identification: As long as you click on the Hilite Button while a shader is selected, the 3DPI hilites the specific shader.


[changed] Search function


The search function has been changed: it is not anymore a way to only SCROLL to the first found item, but now works as a FILTER:

If you type something into the Search field, the list of items only shows objects, that names STARTS with the search string.

If type a star * at the beginning, the list of items shows all objects, that names CONTAINS your search string.

The way the 3DPI reacts on your typing into the Search field - either it reacts after typing each letter, or after pressing the Enter key - still depends on the "Autosearch" Property in the 3DPI Preferences.


[changed] alert note at Preview


On PC a crash might happen after a Preview was used and you close the 3DPI window. (See version 4.4 changes for more information.) To better indicate about this problem, an information alert opens at the moment you try to activate a Preview.


[changed] names for duplications


The names, that the 3DPI suggests when you use the Clone, the CloneDeep or the internal Duplicate function, are improved.
In example when you want to clone a model called "ball" instead of suggesting the name "model_1" it now offers "ball-copy1".


[bugfix] Info-Button at ModelResource


The "ModelResource Information" feature was caluculated wrong: it only listed one model, that used the selected ModelResource instead of all of them. Fixed.
