K3 RC6 official release

Postby Janusz Biela » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:27 am

This is last RC version avilable in download section. Next: Full K3.
After Full K3 we will start K3.1.
Changes:

Code: Select all

3.0 RC6 12-06-2018
- LWO3 direct loader
- LW2018 clip maps, normals and bump enabled
- monte carlo SSS shader
- Kray3Render does not reload whole scene (faster render restart)
- bug fixes:
   random Layout crash after few test renders
   instant crash
   cubic mapping error
   new diffuse model couse Modeler error
   SSS crash when is SubPatch
   smooth surface with SSS not working
   Crash when no ISO standart types


SSS shader still developing but I will release scene for that.
I suggest install again in LW K3 plugin (add plugins) after exchange files.

Thanks!
I remember now this bug (simple I forgot send to bug tracker)
G. will fix this soon.
Actually fixing bugs now are very fast. G. can fix bugs in minutes becasue K3 code now is very organized and clean.

Hope I can help.
Keep in mind that from our point of wiev "fast" bug correction is when we receive the corrected version of RC6(7) fast. At the times of RC4 we had to live together with the annoying modeler-layout switch bug too long.

From now bug fixing will be very fast. Now we are on hunting phase...before was too many job to do with code (missing this, not balanced that, etc)
Since almost everything is supported from Lightwave we need help to catch all crash bugs.
Thanks again!

We hunt now crashes - if any please send me scene (scene must be set for 100% crash)
Please remember we do not support specularity (it can crash LW/K3)...actually G. must put trap for this feature.

Can we get access to RC6+?

I have to do some kitchens, and because the lumi bug, with RC6 I have to mod many-many surfaces (clock on the oven, spots, etc etc.)
I need to know in this case what does the 8 days old "soon RC6+" means
