Seamilar ... the sequel

Recommended Posts

Working hard on the next features. And as always: simple things tend to take up much more time then anticipated.

When using the native BodyPaint tools for unwrapping I noticed many times that UV polygons ended up flipped/mirrored. I figured this could easily be fixed, and decided to add this as a feature. Seamilar does now automatically detect flipped polygons and will mirror the island when needed. This feature has been part of version 2.1 of Seamilar, but for some (unknown) reason was never brought to the attention.

In version 2.2 the UV view gets another step towards becoming an editor, as points, edges, polygons and islands can now be selected and manipulated.
Color configuration has been added to make up your own preferred island colors.
Tools and commands have been added, and not least important, shortcuts and icons follow the native Cinema 4D policy.

A specific rendernode version of the plugin has been written to avoid the need of deleting the Seamilar unwrapper tag, before sending to a render queue. All customers of Seamilar will receive such rendernode version of the plugin, free of charge.

As always, still a lot of tweaking and even more testing to be done before release time.

Hey @SIgor - I tried for a while to add a Seamilar 2 review but I can't see how to. On the product page for it I can't click the little stars, or the word review there - just wondered how I get into store reviews section ?

Thanks

@Cerbera Thanks for trying to add a review.  I wish more would do so, but I understand not everyone would know what to write.
On the other hand, I am more than happy with the positive feedback provided in this thread. I originally had expected a lot of questions, but it seems the plugin (or its documentation) is self explanatory ... But then again, I might simply be biased!

Just for the record. Version 2.2 has been distributed to the customers.
So, before diving into the next features on the todo list, I will spent some time on SPETI and its identical twin sister TINA.

Yep, tried again, but still no joy I'm afraid !  I guess I am meant to be clicking the stars, and / or the word review next to them, or is there some glaringly obvious other way I have missed ? :) 

Don't worry, @C4DS I'll keep trying :)

With the hype around the current BodyPaint beta update, I am sure this is probably not the right moment to post any updates. As everyone seems to be all over the beta download, I am not sure anyone might ever be reading this ...
Also considering that possibly near future update of Cinema 4D (be it beta or R19 release) might show some enhancement related to UV ... Maybe, maybe not. Who knows.

Anyway, while I don't consider this moment to be the best to post any update on my Seamilar plugin, I still wanted to show the next concept I have been working on. Not sure if this rings any bell with all the other exciting news around, but I sure was looking forward to show this progress.

Guys, reviews can only write those who purchased a product directly from the store. :)

OK, that explains it.
Those who purchased the plugin at introduction price before it was part of the store can't write a review. Good to know.
Well, there are enough "store-buyers" to write reviews ... wondering who will be the first.

As you can see, even with our products, for some reason, no one is up to too write something down. :/

And those reviews can really help sellers, so I am not sure how to "force" people to be a little bit more engaged.
