Area于3月25日发布了softimage 2013:

这次的更新最让人震撼的是High Quality View port(XSI的视图终于牛逼起来了!),Crowd FX(高级集群系统,支持Mixer!),还有众多细节操作上的改进,太让人兴奋了!



Here is a bullet list of the new features and changes, If there are some things missing they will be small items only.

General

  • Default Camera now 1920x1080 (16x9) @ 30fps
  • New Scene now starts with the B viewport maximized – controlled through Preferences>Display
  • New Texture Editor Preferences (Preferences>Editors>Texture Editor) also includes new prefs for Snap
  • Viewport>Display Options>Performance>Two Sided Lighting
  • Explorer - Application>Data>Capture Options>Return to Current Frame When Done
  • Drag and drop tabs to reorder in toolbars/shelves
  • New toolbar spacer widget for height and width
  • Hide status icon added to groups and partitions
  • Expose pivot editing commands in the transform (SRT) tool RMB context menu

Rigging and Animation

  • Animation Mixer
    • Moving the time cursor in the Mixer or DopeSheet will no longer change the global start/end frame
    • New ability to load multiple preset files at the same time
    • New ability for compounds and source clips to have a custom color
    • Reorder tracks by drag and drop
    • Ability to select multiple clips using rectangular select tool
    • Import FBX animation as source clip (see Crosswalk)
  • FCurve Editing
    • F-Curve retiming manipulator
    • New SDK menu anchor points and Enums (see SDK)
    • The Fcurve editor has experienced some menu command name changes to make it more compatible with the fcurve editors in the other Autodesk applications
  • GATOR
    • You can now select objects, points, edges, polygons, or clusters as the target.
    • You can now use multiple GATOR operators to transfer envelopes from multiple objects.
    • There is a new Envelope checkbox to disable the transfer of envelopes when the Transfer button is pressed.
  • Chain Bones
    • Animate>Skeleton>Draw Bones. The bone primitive can now be used to create a chain
    • Works with selection filters, duplication, move joint tool, snapping
  • Synoptic View
    • Python Support
    • Support for Japanese characters

High Quality Viewport

  • A new High-Quality Viewport reduces the need to frequently preview using a software renderer. With the ability to evaluate work interactively in an environment that closely mimics the rendered output.
  • All standard render tree nodes have been converted to support High Quality output – Examples include:
    • Shadow Pass, Architectural, Environment, Vertex_Color, Incidence
  • Preferences>Display> New High Quality Viewport Options and Defaults
  • New High Quality tab in Viewport>Display Options controls
    • Enabling High Quality Viewport
    • Anti-aliasing
    • Dithering
    • Shadows
    • Ambient Occlusion
    • Depth of Field
  • Supports:
    • Multiple blended textures
    • Contributions from multiple lights at the same time (no predetermined limit)
    • Depth of Field (viewport only)
    • Environment Maps (pass and local)
    • Procedural shaders
    • Normal maps
    • Antialiasing
    • Bumps maps
    • Weight maps
    • Vertex Color Maps
    • Texture layers
    • Screen Space Ambient Occlusion

    • Shadow Softness (Shadow Maps Only)
    • Flat Light
  • Custom shaders and HQ shading can be seen at the same time
  • Hardware Renderer supports the High Quality option
  • HQV uses CGFX as an output and is therefore is graphic card dependent. There are environment variables set in the setenv.bat controlling the samples. Too many samples inside Softimage can crash your card – hence they are limited. Specifying higher values in Softimage, than those in the setenv will be ignored.
    • set XSI_HIGH_QUALITY_VIEWPORT_MAX_DOF_SAMPLES=8
    • set XSI_HIGH_QUALITY_VIEWPORT_MAX_AO_SAMPLES=8
    • set XSI_HIGH_QUALITY_VIEWPORT_MAX_REFLECT_SAMPLES=1
    • set XSI_HIGH_QUALITY_VIEWPORT_MAX_SHADOW_SAMPLES=8
  • A few items which are not supported:
    • Area Lights
    • Raytraced Soft Shadows
    • Photons
    • Car Paint Shader

Rendering

  • There is a new option Automatically Delete Unused Nodes on Refresh in the Render Tree
  • New support for specifying partial frame rendering using Frame Set option – IE "1.1, 1.2, 1.3"
  • Render Region Context Menu: New refresh mode
    • Interactive. Camera, Time and Region State. Manual
  • Preferences>Rendering. New Region Tab to control various elements
  • You can now use irradiance particles together with final gathering. (FG has precedence)
  • Local rendering options now show the label "Local" as well as appearing in Roman typeface in the explorer.
  • Color Clipping: mental ray - premultiply with Alpha turned off the RGB values no longer get clamped to 1.0 for floating-point images.
  • Softimage 2013 uses version 3.10.1.4 of the mental ray.

Modeling

  • Merging or Blending Polygon Meshes
  • When merging or blending polygon meshes, you can now transfer all clusters even if they don't have any properties (like local materials, weight maps, vertex colors, etc.).
  • The Split Edge tool has been improved to make it easier to split edges close to existing vertices. If you still have difficulty, try zooming the view.
