    free lscript: easylighting beta - please test

    Hello together,

    I have now finished working on the first Betaversion of my newest Script "Easylighting". Please test it and let me know what you think.

    Please let me know also, if you have an idea for a better name for the script

    You can download the free script here:

    http://svenart.de/plugins/easylighting.zip



    Description:

    Easy Lighting is a lscript written to give the user the possibility to save/load and edit his favourite Lightsettings + more.

    The main function of this script is to save & load your favourite lightsettings including radiosity, fog, backdrop and more. This is useful for example, if you want to change the lighting in your scene but you dont want to save your scenefile multiple times (scene_day.lws, scene_night.lws). Also, you can load your saved lightsettings in any other scenefile, and massedit your lights.

    Please note:

    1.This is a Betaversion for testing and not all lightsettings will be saved/loaded. See below in the list what the script can load/save. Also, this script is only working with the old 5 LW Lighttypes (Distant, Poin, Spot, Linear and Area).

    2.If you want to massedit lights, you must first select the lights, then change settigs, then click on ok.

    If you have any ideas to improve this script or problems using it, contact me on [email protected]

    Gaffer was a Worley plugin I think.

    thank you all for your feedback and name ideas so far I will try to create a short tutorial tomorrow about how to use the script.

    I will think about adding cameras, not sure at the moment.

  13. #13
    So far :
    ( please ignore anything you've already considered )

    Bugs(?)

    only allows selection in the scene editor while open, not keys or viewports.

    only allows, or displays, integers in some fields like Minimum Pixel Spacing and Angular tolerance.

    does strange things to other panels, maybe it should be non-modal?


    Requests

    the "Use Backdrop color" button in the Fog tab.

    "select all/none/invert" options in light list

    "Light type" option, and/or grey out options that do not apply to certain types

    Light inclusion/Exclusion, like this nice plugin :

    hi toby, thank you for testing and your feedback.

    angular tolerance can be loaded/saved and set, but the script cant read it from scene , when starting script (im working on it).

    The script is not interactive, so you cannot select anything outside of the script menue when running.

    what do you mean with "strange things" and "non-modal"?

    about your requests: I will try to add most of the options into the next update.

  15. #15
    Non-modal (I may have the term backwards) is when you're locked out of the rest of the gui while the panel is open. If the script is not interactive that might be the best. Strange things include the selection, and trying to opening the raytrace options in the lw panel wouldn't work.

    I'm running 9.6 32bit in OSX 10.5.4 btw.

    As someone who loves to light I really appreciate this! Please feel free from having to explain anything, you can just say "maybe" or "nope, can't do that", or even - nothing at all!
