Changed

Bakesurface
  • decals are now always written to disk (standard as png , if not avaible as tga, but this should never happend)
  • decals are numbered ,if such a file still exist , can changed to overwritten when starting Bakesurface with the Shift-key holding down
  • experimental added transparency map (alpha channel) (#0005520) (not marked as resolved yet)

Manipulator Properties
  • displaying the cp position now rounded to 1e-9 , (before 1e-4) (sometimes cp are not at the expected position , in special if they should be at 0)
  • when You change a value there , now You can use also exponents means 1e-3 or 1E-3 is correct converted to 0,001



Particle Systems
  • drawing calls (all modes) returning immediatly, if no particles from this emitter are emmited (little speedup)
  • emitting calls now returning immediatly, if the trigger value not reached (little speedup)

Particle systems Hair
  • added new propertie for "Hair system" "Accurate hair transparency" default ON affects only final rendering and when the hair has transparency != 0% switching it to OFF, will render hair systems much faster , when their transparency is changed , but the transparency is not rendered correct
  • a sample can downloaded at www.sgross.com\am_test\ACCU_TRANS.zip (accu_off_hsp16.tga is the file rendered with this setting is off)
  • for testing hairs I have used www.sgross.com\am_test\hairtest.zip
