Have been bravely modeling with the latest edition ... saving more often than ever lol ..
Okay ... if one has a kazillion Shading Domains/mat zones which over the course of the project get replaced and so forth ... it used to be that one could export out the finished .obj file, import it into D/S and make the figure. Except for maybe one or two “just in case” calls for default or something, all the rest of the unused mats were NOT a part of the .obj.
At least D/S3 didn’t read them.
Now with the latest Hexagon, D/S still doesn’t read the unnecessary materials. [which I think is great]
However D/S4.0 lists them ALL. :-( eeekkk ....
Didn’t brave the file to 4.5 to see what it would do ... cleaned it up in Hexagon and it works as should now in 3 and 4.0.
So I’d like to repeat to whoever might ever consider updating this lovely program [and I sincerely hope it does get upgraded] to make some kind of a “multi-choice” selection for 1 action, like “delete”. One by one is NOT fun.
When I checked the exported from Hexagon .obj back imported back into Hexagon [so it should have shown me a clean .obj file as the previous edition did], it showed that it had saved out the Shading Domains and EVERY shading domain had a ‘ghost’, empty material shading domain also on its group.
