Thread: Lightwave ui+

  1. #1

    Red face Lightwave ui+

    Hi!

    *This is a present. This is an experiment. This is a work in progress.*

    This is an organizer of Lightwave's panels for Modeler & Layout.


    It also improves some points of Lightwave:

    - It is possible to use UP and DOWN keys in Scene Editor.

    - errors windows rest on top with focus on it.

    - It synchronizes the Modeler change in the layout automatically.





    Installation Notes:

    - First, Close all Layout Windows

    - It is necessary to have configured shortcuts like that:

    Layout:
    - Alt+F1 must be the Classic Scene Editor.
    (in Layout Configure Keys > SceneEditor > Classic Scene Editor)


    Modeler:
    - The key < must be "Synchronize Layout"
    (in Modeler Configure Keys > File > Synchronize Layout)
    - The key > must be empty. (remove the zoom key)

    - TaskBar must be bottom

    - then Start LW_UI.exe

    - open Menu in the Gray LW Logo in the TaskBar and Set Dual or Single Screen, Modeler Sync and Cpu usage.



    I work with it everyday with joy.


    Limitations:

    - Small screen is not the best. Best is 1200 pixels vertical... 1024 is a minimum.

    - Somes windows in both Layout and Modeler have same name (Surface Editor, Image Editor, etc...)
    It is better to not have Surface Editor and Image Editor opened in same time in both app... It work but it can be a bit messy .

    - It work on single screen and in an only way on dual screen : modeler in the right, Layout in the left screen)

    - and Somes windows are still not set. (FiberFx, etc... and smalls ones...)



    Options Menu in the Tray Bar:

    - You can Choice Dual Screen or Single Screen.
    - You can activate the Modeler Synchronisation.
    - You can set the Cpu usage: 10 is good for me, 50 less CPU intense, and 2 more responsive.

    MODELER UI+:

    LAYOUT UI+:


    (hmm it seems that videos are cropped at the bottom...)


    Have Fun.

    (If you have some code skills, some time, and want help on this one. PM me. They are based on Autoit scripting)

    I always have both open in my Layout / left, Modeler / right workflow (panels are on the monitor opposite), so this may prove to be a problem.

    looks interesting, Im watching them on a poor laptop now, will check them later again, if itīs not to messy to install then
    I might try it.

    something like this Ivé been wanting the lightwave group to work on for the UI, docking windows almost, and expanding collapsing like adobe series ..sort of...or like in cinema4d.

    Thanks for this..canīt test it until some days though..I think.

    Ok, color me confused. I think I followed the install instructions but the panel layouts that I have in Layout and Modeler stick to those positions. IOW, they don't change into the morphing multi-panel format that is in the video. How do I "reset" the panels, so that UI+ does its thing?

    If nothing happens, then the LW_UI.exe is probably not started...
    Can you see a lightgray Lightwave logo in the taskbar?

    Confuse too... Normally, panels starts to organize as soon as you click on the app, button, shortkey something...
    You have to wait a bit to see how well it is on others computers....

    It work well here. (LW11.6 x64 - Win7pro 64bits)
