2.101 is ready for download from:
The goal of this version has been to be able to run a techuelife island tree script and so the necessary C++ instructions have been added.
This script creates 60 leaf copies from a single leaf. Each leaf copy is positioned and rotated from look up data contained in a multiple Vec3f container and a multiple Rotation container. The 60 leaves end up in a single IndexedFaceSet. This is more efficient than using 60 Transform nodes with each one referencing a single leaf because 60 Transform nodes would have to be calculated for every frame.
To witness this first for seamless:
Click on the web button and paste in the fowling url into the worldUrl field:
http://www.seamless3d.com/wrl/techuelif ... e_s9b.smls
then click go.
After the smls is output as a wrl you will also want to delete the numbers generated by the script or the file will be much bigger than it needs to be.
field data to delete:
All of the coords, normals and the coordIndex for the leavesIfs IndexedFaceSet and the fields inside the script node indexDest, coordDest and
This version of seamless has had a number of bugs fixed including the bug reported by Taranis
that would cause seamless to crash if an Appearance node was clicked (and not dragged) in the hoppy script example.
I wanted to get this demonstration uploaded earlier but a few events slowed me down such as my new 17" flat screen CRT monitor dieing on me a few days ago
I have ordered a new 17" LCD to replace it. I hope LCDs are less likely to die, my 17" CRT was only about 23 months old. It will be about a week before my LCD arrives in the post so in the mean time I am using my old 14" bubble screened monitor! arrrrrg it's horrible! The highest resolution I can use is only 800 by 600! I don't know how I ever used it for so many years without going mad lol
