I can indeed confirm that the bug is now fixed. smile

While you are getting ready for your next release when you get chance you'll have to update your splash screen, replacing the old style TV for a new LCD TV, wink the up-lighter can now be illuminated and atmospheric lighting could be added (drawing attention to the new lighting capabilities) oh! Also don't forget to change the date to 2007-2010 smile

Maybe something like this?

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Emmanuel:

Maybe I'm too quick with this post of my test with v2.4.



From left to right:
- The standard render in the 3D pane
- The "old" photo render
- The new Phong render (all 3 plug-ins have this problem)

The gentlemen are zip-files from the Google Sketchup library in the Collada file format.

Nevertheless, you've done a terrific job once again!

Hans

applause Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Emmanuel congratulations on your 2.4 release. smile smile smile

You've been busy!

Thank you for your kind remarks about the render, please feel free to use it if you want to. I might export the picture of the lady and add a background to it, then import and re-render, at the moment with the picture just being an outline it causes multiple shadows making the picture look like it's out of focus. Might also alter the desk lamp so it isn't so bright. smile

Hans,
After reading your post I also gave the figures a try and concur they render (or rather they don't) as invisible. with any of the 3 new advanced shaders.

Emmanuel,
Once again congratulations, thank you for all your hard work!

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Thank you guys for your remarks and help!
I know why the plug-ins don't work with DAE/Collada models, and will release a new version soon.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Here are the updated plug-ins able to support models at DAE/Collada format:
http://www.sweethome3d.com/plugins/AdvancedRendering-1.3.sh3p
http://www.sweethome3d.com/plugins/AdvancedRendering-PhongShader-1.3.sh3p
http://www.sweethome3d.com/plugins/AdvancedRendering-UberShader-1.3.sh3p

AdvancedRendering-1.3.sh3p is a new file.
AdvancedRendering-PhongShader-1.3.sh3p and AdvancedRendering-UberShader-1.3.sh3p replace the previous files.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Thank you Emmanuel for the fixes, I can indeed confirm that the models render okay with every shader version (apart from some silver surfaces using Uber, please see below) smile

With you being very busy releasing version 2.4 I do hope my updated post on the lighting shader test thread (about a possible solution to the grey/silver leaves and furniture) will be helpful for the next version of Uber.

Couple of quick questions. Why did you choose to remove the advanced photo plug-in page from the front page? I have tried looking for it but so far haven't found it. Also with you releasing 2.4 yesterday what's your thoughts on the release date reading 25th instead? wink I know the date doesn't really matters just thought I'd ask. smile


Thank you for your time and especially for your hard work,

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

Why did you choose to remove the advanced photo plug-in page from the front page?
I just removed the link to the article about Advanced rendering plug-in.
I prefer to keep the home page not to big: lots of people don't have big screens and I even saw people using Sweet Home 3D on a netbook! Recent news can be accessed from the blog link, and I mentioned the update of the Advanced rendering plug-in in the article about Sweet Home 3D 2.4.
The first link returned by a search for "plug-in" points to the article about Advanced rendering plug-in too.

Also with you releasing 2.4 yesterday what's your thoughts on the release date reading 25th instead?
That's an error. Thank you for reporting it. smile

After further tests I and sorry to report the bug is still there but to a much smaller extent.

The catalog view still creeps down the the screen and across by only a small percentage, maybe about 5 pixels at a time. Watching the program open I would guess you programmed in a negative jump distance so as the windows try to reposition/jump it should end up back where is started. Is that how you did it?


If it is helpful I have attached a couple of files to show how far the windows move after 10 saves

Save 1 The reference point to gauge against.
Save 10 is the last save I did.

If I did more saves the windows would creep further but I thought 10 saves was enough to let you see what is still happening.

Sorry to report a bug sad

Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.4

I know it's still not perfect, but the way Sweet Home 3D is programmed prevents me to easily fix it and this behavior varies from one system to the other (I prefer to avoid too much technical details here).
The workaround is to resize the window with the mouse to get a size as large as the screen's size without using the maximize icon.
