A number of new tools have been developed with View 2022.1.2
We have a measure tool which creates dimensions between two selected entities. Has controllable units (meters, inches, etc.)
Color may be changed
Text is always flat to the screen for readability
Recomputes when the referenced meshes move – uses ActionGraph behind the scenes to accomplish this
Distance only right now – shortest or center/center or min or max values
Snap the dimension measure to X, Y or Z axes as desired
We added a tool to put comments / scribbles / etc. on an orientation of the model.
Built on top of Waypoints
Manager for markups
Boxes / Circles
The comments are on a 2D layer on top of the current 3D model
We added support to make these first class citizens.
Editable which allows a user to update it based on new objects in the scene or lighting conditions
Renaming to something other than Waypoint_0, Waypoint_1, etc.
Reorder waypoints to better define the order you may want to walk through these in a design review
Playlists now allow for drag&drop of Waypoints to create a custom slide show or dynamic camera play
Easily navigate huge worlds with a single leap.
General tool for Create or View
Twist your orientation, if desired
Camera becomes set at the height of your head (Approximately 6ft off the floor you landed on)
Select any object and turn it around on a turntable.
Moves the object, not the camera
The Sky Browser is now the Environment Browser supporting more than just open skies.
Ground planes are now supported
Shadow planes can be turned on when just using an HDRI
Default environment does not need to be a sky but could easily be a room or other studio scene.
