QuadPanels has yet another update.

http://www.liberty3d.com/artists/videos/james/qp4post.jpg

(The riveted panel is a new procedural not yet fully implemented and does not appear in v1.5)

* UI redesign: The user interface has been completely redesigned, it is smaller and more logically navigated.

* Random numbers: QuadPanels has implemented a seeded random number generator. This means you can now repeat details with the new Seed controls. Random seed operates as normal. Seed per Panel uses the same random sequence for each quad you select, so you could cover a mesh with the same collection of details. Seed per Selection starts with the same seed for each selection, but randomises per panel, so if you select a block of n panels and detail them, you can apply the same details spread across all those panels to a different block of n.

* New Layer: You can now generate your details on a new layer instead of embedding them in the original geometry.

* Bugfixes and more checking for valid geometry.

Thanks for the update James :)

I am having an issue with the demo4 video on the liberty3d web site, it is failing to play when it gets to about 4:29.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Thanks,

Andrew.

Yay rivets!

I haven't had time to play with v1.5 yet. Real life keeps interfering. Darned real life.

No rivets in 1.5, they need more control than the other panel types and I'm working out how to implement that.

Yes, I saw that. I'm just excited that they're being worked on at all!

Great idea to have the option for the new objects to go on a new layer!

I'm getting some weird lines at the bottom of some entry fields. See pic.
You can see it in the min/max/var fields. This is on a mac.
