Legacy versions

Version 2.1

  • The Tint Strength input in the Simple Colour Corrector Node was of the colour type, but should be a scalar.
  • Added Material Tweaker
  • The blending modes in the Material Blender were not processed correctly. Please note that this is a breaking change if either the modes or the opacity were used.
  • The min/max nodal inputs of the Remap node were swapped. This is a breaking change.

Version 2.0

  • Added Ratio node to split a value according to a percentage
  • Added “Luminance Gamma” to the Simple Colour Corrector. This changes the gamma on the luminance channel preserving both hue and saturation.
  • Added “Clamp Output” option to the Simple Colour Corrector. This limits the output to the range from 0.0 to 1.0
  • Fixed a potential crash in the Simple Colour Corrector if a negative value made it through to gamma changes
  • Added “No Radiosity Reflectivity” to Schlick's, causing it to set the reflectivy to 0% for all rays that sample radiosity
  • Speed up to the Cache node
  • The “Clamp” option wasn't copied with the Remap node

Version 1.9a

  • fixed a crash in “Revenge of the Lenscap”

Version 1.9

  • Added Schlick's Approximation
  • Fixed various issues when nodes were used in Modeler

Version 1.8

  • fixed compatibility issues with the pixel filter in LW10
  • fixed an issue with the Cache node when rendering using VPR in LW10
  • Added a Scene Comment master plugin (It requires TextWrangler as well as the matching command line tools to be installed on OSX)
  • Added the (experimental) StickyFrontUV node which can create front projection UVs for compositing.
    Those stick to the item if it is transformed. Deformations are not supported.
  • Added a Colour Space node to convert from one colour space to another (LW10 only)
  • Added a Colour Space Converter Generic plug-in to convert from one colour space to another (LW10 only)
    You can copy and paste colour values throughout LW using the following shortcuts (on the colour swatches):
Shift-RMB : Copy
Ctrl-RMB : Paste

Version 1.7

  • Added the DepthLimiter Pixel filter. It clamps the maximum distance stored in the depth buffer to increase the quality of depth Anti-aliasing.
