Daz Studio Pro 4.11 - Highlights

edited June 12 in Daz Studio Discussion

Each new build of Daz Studio comes with its own set of bug fixes, new features, adjustments to existing features, etc. Since near the beginning of Daz Studio 4.x development (4.0.4.19 - according to the posted logs), a list of changes have been made available via the Change Log on the Documentation Center. In addition to the Change Log, we have also typically provided a forum thread wherein the first post highlights some of the changes in a given release (typically things that have the greatest potential to impact large cross-sections of the userbase). Periodically, as new builds have been made available and/or as time has allowed, the first post of the latest thread would be updated to provide more/new information on a given build. Unfortunately, these updates seemed to go unnoticed by many who didn't revisit the first post of the thread. This same information would also then be reposted when a Public Build was eventually promoted to General Release.

In order to address some of these issues and bring more visibility to the highlights for a given build, we are now splitting these highlights off into their own thread. A separate discussion thread will remain available (linked below), but the highlights thread itself will be closed for comment so as to avoid the information being buried by the discussion and to provide notification through regular features of the forum software.

    4.11.0.171 (July 16, 2018)

    • Application Permissions
      • Running the primary application executable with elevated permissions on Windows (e.g., "Run as administrator") is now prevented; running with elevated permissions can cause conflicts with accessing folder/files/registry keys; the application itself does not (and should not) require elevated permissions to run
        • A helper application requests elevation as required and is limited to necessary operations
    • NVIDIA Iray
      • Integrated Iray 2018.0.1 (302800.3495); see this thread for more details
        • Increases hardware requirement to Kepler class or newer generation GPUs; recent driver recommended
      • Added support for Deep Learning Denoiser (see "Post Denoiser" below)
      • Render Settings pane
        • Added "Post Denoiser Available", "Post Denoiser Enable" and "Post Denoiser Start Iteration" properties to the "Filtering/Post Denoiser" property group
          • "Post Denoiser Available" must be enabled prior to starting a render in order to cause the other "Post Denoiser" properties to be revealed and have meaning
        • Removed "Noise Filter Enable" property
          • Redundant with "Noise Degrain Filtering" being 0 (off) or >0 (on)
        • Added tips to the Advanced page of the Render Settings pane when NVIDIA Iray is the active renderer
      • Iray Uber Shader
        • Fixed an issue with inverted normals on thick translucent surfaces (e.g., Skin)
        • Added a "Invert Transmission Normal" property
          • Flips the direction of the normal vector (e.g., bump/normal maps) for transmission
        • Added a "Round Corners Roundness" property
          • Determines how round the edge will look
          • Valid range is [0.0, 1.0]; 0.0 chamfers the edge, 1.0 gives a rounded edge
    • dForce
      • Added support for polylines to Dynamic Surface Add-On
    • OBJ Import
      • Added support for polylines
      • Added a "Read Faces" option

    • Hexagon Bridge
      • Fixed an issue with transparency when using Iray Uber shader
    • Node Properties
      • Added a "Visible in Viewport" property to nodes
        • When enabled (default), the geometry/avatar for a given node is drawn in the viewport
        • When disabled, the geometry/avatar for a given node is not drawn
        • When disabled and the node is selected, the bounding box for the node is drawn (draw style settings permitting)
      • Reordered node properties to better suggest that the "Visible" property is a superset of "Visible in *" properties
      • Changing the state of the "Visible" property on a node now causes dependent properties to be dynamically hidden/shown
      • Changing the state of the "Show Bones" property on a skeleton now causes dependent properties to be dynamically hidden/shown
    • Mouse/Cursor handling
      • Rewrote a significant portion of the mouse event pipeline for viewports, view tools and sliders in order to address timing issues brought on by OS and/or driver updates that manifested in a percievable "jump" for a growing number of users
      • Changes made have an impact in the following areas:
        • Viewport (i.e., shortcut navigation)
        • Viewport Tools (e.g., Camera Cube, Pose Tool, Universal Tool, Rotation Tool, Translation Tool, Scale Tool, etc.)
        • Viewport Controls (e.g., non-docked viewport controls)
        • Mouse Buttons (e.g., docked viewport controls, View pane)
        • Sliders (e.g., Parameters pane, Posing pane, Shaping pane, etc.)
        • Remote operation
          • All clients tested have been significantly improved

      • "Fast" stop mode is now used instead of "Immediate" stop mode when switching CMS Cluster Directory; safer
    • Script IDE pane
      • Added the ability to edit version and file type information for non-encrypted scripts
      • Saving an encrypted script now checks for an existing file and prompts accordingly
      • Reloading an encrypted script no longer causes that script to fail on subsequent executions
      • Action enabled/disabled states for a given script tab's context menu now update properly
      • A portion of the Edit menu is now dynamically populated (immediately prior to first display, or when refreshed) from the folder/file structure of specified directories on disk
        • "<application_home>/resources/Script IDE/…" and "<mapped_native_dir>/data/resources/Script IDE/<vendor_name>/<product_name>/…" and "<daz_connect_product>/data/resources/script ide/<vendor_name>/<product_name>/…"
        • Where an adjacent PNG exists, it will be used for the script action's icon
      • Added several new script based actions to the Edit menu
      • Added support for file IO event scripts
        • Scripts that are executed if they exist when specific operations are performed (i.e., _new.dsa, _open.dsa, _save.dsa)
      • ...

    4.11.0.380 (May 29, 2019)

    • Strand-Based Hair
      • Added support for growing Strand-Based Hair on Geometry Shell; hair must be after shell in scene list to reload correctly
      • Split launching "Basic" mode of the Strand-Based Hair Editor into its own "Edit Strand-Based Hair (Basic)..." action, instead of holding the control modifier (linked documentation is in progress)
        • Launches the Strand-Based Hair Editor for the currently selected Strand-Based Hair node in a "Basic" styling mode
        • Need to apply the Window > Workspace > Update and Merge Menus action for this action to become visible
      • Renamed all uses of "Texture Control Map" in the Strand-Based Hair Editor to "Texture Set"
      • Holding the [Alt] key when clicking a slider associated with a hairstyle in the Strand-Based Hair Editor will now restore its value to the value it had when the dialog was launched

      • The Texture Sets Import option in the Style workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor now allows replacing an existing texture set
      • Each active target surface of a strand-based hair now results in a separate surface/material when the Strand-Based Hair Editor is accepted
        • These surfaces are in addition to the Strand-Based Hair surface
        • These surfaces provide individual surface/material access to the configuration of the hair for non-RSL-based rendering pipelines (e.g., OpenGL, NVIDIA Iray)
        • RSL-based rendering pipelines (e.g., 3Delight) use the singular Strand-Based Hair surface/material settings
      • Accepting the Strand-Based Hair Editor now causes surfaces of the created/modified node that correlate to the target object to automatically use the Iray Blended Dual Lobe Hair Shader if the preset that applies it is installed
      • The Select Curves by Tip, Select Curve Points, Comb Curves, and Surface Attract Curves tools in the Style workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor now provide an Offset option
        • All four controls are linked
        • Defaults to original value (0.1)
        • The value is saved to and read from the hair system
        • In the case of the Select Curves by Tip, Select Curve Points, and Comb Curves tools, this option is dependent on the corresponding Surface Intersection Check option being active
        • This option provides the ability to set the offset distance from the target surface to use for collision
          • If set too high, style curves being manipulated will begin to crumple/frizz
      • Interaction with Curve Selection Sets in the Style workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor has been significantly changed
        • Instead of a simple single-selection list, the view now allows each set to be added to or removed from the current selection and also allows multiple (via extended-selection) sets to be applied at the same time
        • Renaming of a Curve Selection Set is now accessed via double-click
        • The Rename and Deselect buttons below the list have been removed
        • Added a (dynamic) context menu
          • New...
          • Delete Selected
          • Rename...
          • Add Selected
          • Subtract Selected
          • Update
      • Interaction with Texture Sets in the Paint workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor has changed slightly
        • Renaming of a texture set in the list can now be accessed via double-click
        • The Duplicate, Rename, Fill and Invert buttons below the list have been removed
        • Context menu access to Texture Set actions has been added
          • New...

          • Delete
          • Rename...
          • Fill
          • Invert
      • The Texture Sets list in the Paint workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor now displays icons for a given set that indicates its type; i.e., Gray or Color
      • Auxiliary Texture Set dialogs initiated from the Strand-Based Hair Editor now display icons that indicate/reinforce type where applicable
      • Texture Set selectors in the various workspaces of the Strand-Based Hair Editor now display icons (and a prefix) that clarify the type of maps to expect (used) for a given setting
      • Added alternate value/color controls to the Paint workspace of the Strand-based Hair Editor for controlling the color/value used by the brush in the viewport when the [Alt] key is pressed while painting
      • The Invert Mouse Wheel customization option for the application is now respected by the viewport of the Strand-Based Hair Editor
      • Fixed an item count vs scrollbar visibility issue with the Texture Sets list in the Paint workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor
      • Fixed a sorting after rename issue with the Curve Selection Sets list on the style workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor
      • Fixed inconsistently applied random number generation between dForce hair and strand-based hair
        • Results for random length, random angle, and frizz will all be slightly altered in previously saved scenes, but will now be consistent between hair types
      • Fixed an inconsistency across the Preview group(s) of Workspace Settings in the Strand-Based Hair Editor
        • Changed the label/polarity/default for "Use Preview Color" to "Show Hair Color"
      • Cleaned up Global Settings in the Strand-Based Hair Editor
        • Layout
        • Labeling
      • Fixed an issue that caused a previously specified undo limit in the Strand-Based Hair Editor to be ignored
      • Updated various inline help entries for the Strand-Based Hair Editor
      • Switched texture compression for file saving to use zip instead of JPEG LS; resolves save/load issues for strand-based hair on Mac and results in an overall reduction in the data footprint
      • Mac Users:
        • Saving/Loading of scenes with Strand-Based Hair is functional in this build
          • Loading a saved scene requires the scene to have been saved in 4.11.0.380 or newer
    • dForce
      • Fixed issues with dForce hair not being visible to collision when Freeze Simulation is active
      • Fixed issues with invisible vertices colliding with faces; dForce Hair/Cloth interaction
      • Fixed issues with Duplicate of dForce objects not including all applicable information
      • ...
      • Updated the dForce Starter Essentials package
    • NVIDIA Iray
      • Made several adjustments/improvements to the Advanced > Canvases page
        • When an attempt is made to add a bone to an Iray canvas node list (e.g., "Create from Selection"), that bone's skeleton is added to the list instead; attempting to add a bone automatically elevates to the node that would contain the associated geometry
        • The title of the node list editing dialog now has a proper title; indicates its purpose and the name of the node list being edited
        • Fixed an issue when manually typing (as opposed to copy/pasting) a light path expression into the Expression field of an Iray canvas definition that caused the cursor to move to the beginning with each typed character and ultimately caused what was typed to appear in reverse order
        • Made minor adjustments to the layout/sizing/display of the canvas definition editor
        • ...
    • General User Interface
      • Updated default menus
        • Recommend clicking the Window > Workspace > Update and Merge Menus action
      • Fixed an issue where using the screen color grabbing functionality (e.g., press/hold the "restore modifier" + click-drag) of a color widgett when the widget was in a dialog (e.g., Strand-Based Hair Editor) would not use the pixel directly under the cursor position
      • Color widgets now have the ability to restore a “default” value if the user holds the "restore modifier" when left-clicking the widget; not automatic - must be enabled and initialized by the developer
      • Color widgets are now consistent with established convention, with regard to clicks in conjunction with keyboard modifiers
        • [Click] launches OS color picker
        • [Alt+Click] restores the default value (if enabled)
        • [Shift+ClickDrag] invokes the screen space color picker
        • [Ctrl+Click] presents float color dialog
    • Loading Deprecated File Format
      • Fixed *.daz file crash on load regressions introduced in the 4.11 cycle; related to the initialization of DzSkeleton, DzBone, DzBackdrop
    • ...
    • Scripting API
      • Made many additions in various areas; see the Change Log for more detail
    • Fixed bugs and/or made improvements in various areas; see the Change Log for details

    4.11.0.382 (June 3, 2019)

    • Strand-Based Hair
      • Fixed an issue where the "Parent Geometry" property alias was not set to be non-user owned
        • Resulted in the property alias being written to file when it should not have been
      • Fixed a crash caused by bias control values that resulted in zero
    • dForce
      • Fixed an issue where generated hairs were always being assigned to the first hair group
        • Manifested as an inability to select the node in the viewport when previewing generated hairs
      • Fixed an issue where hair converted from strand-based hair had an empty default face group
      • Fixed a crash caused by hair bias property values that resulted in zero
      • Fixed a crash when rendering hair in OpenGL if the target surface is subdivided and the viewport level did not match the render level
    • Polyline Tessellation
      • Fixed an issue with (horizontally) flipped UVs on tessellated geometry
    • Saving/Loading
      • Fixed an issue where new UVs (that are not already saved to asset file) were not being embedded in a scene file/scene subset

    4.11.0.383 (June 12, 2019)

    • Strand-Based Hair
      • Duplicating a texture Set from the Texture Sets list context menu, in the Paint workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor, now causes the newly created texture set to become the active one
      • Fixed issues with initializing/updating Brush controls in the Paint workspace of the Strand-Based Hair Editor
        • Brush state does not persist across sessions of the editor or the application
        • Each editor session initializes and sets default values
