Bforartists 0.7.0 released

Version 0.7.0 is mainly cleanup work in the Properties editor. Quite a few things are hidden in subtabs now when you open a panel. Which makes navigation easier. The rest is a few cleanup things like removed some more double menu entries and placed tools at another location. And the Create Isocam addon is added.

The development focus goes slowly away from changes at Bforartists and towards the documentation. I really start to dig for issues where i formerly simply stumbled across them by opening Bforartists. And the documentation is also a very important chapter. The Youtube video channel has some more content now. And there will be more to come.

More info can be found in the Release Note:

Bforartists Youtube Channel started, first Video uploaded

I have started the Bforartists Youtube channel today. The channel can be found here:

The Bforartists Youtube Channel will be the place where you can find the Bforartists Video Tutorials. I have already uploaded a first tutorial around the Mini Lightlib addon.

The videos are also linked in the Tutorials section of the Wiki. Which will make it easier to find and to navigate to the tutorial that you need. Currently the tutorial seciton looks a bit lonely with just one tutorial. But more video tutorials will follow in the next few weeks and months. See here:

Bforartists 0.6.0 released

Version 0.6.0 brings fixes to the included addons. Some have quit working since they depended at menus that not longer exists. The add menu in the 3D View editor for example. A handful of addons has to be removed since they were not fixable or obsolete. And we have a new addon called Mini Lightlib, which brings some Cycles light presets. And a button row to switch between modes.

Another little issue is that some things are now in subtabs. Which makes the panels not look so crowded anymore. The Display panel in the Properties sidebar for example. Subtabs in panels is something that i will do at other places now too. Especially in the Properties editor, which is the next big project.

Manual updated, new chapter Layouts

I have started to rewrite the manual. I have also added a first new chapter the name is:"2.2 - Layouts". In this chapter are some section which are very similiar to the ones from chapter 2 in general. I will fix them as soon as I found some time for it.

The manual has also been updated for Bforartists Version 0.5.0. This was again just the entry in the history since the elements which have changed couldn't be found in the manual yet.

I really need to rewrite the manual to something more useful. This stuff is really annoying...

Bforartists Version 0.5.0 released

We have reached a milestone release. Version 0.5.0 marks the end of this development cycle. This release brings tabs, or better said buttons, to switch between the animation editors. To switch between Outliner and Properties Editor. And adds buttons to switch between the most important standard layouts. New is the Wire Tools Addon from Lapineige. New is the Smart Delete addon. The Animation layout is revamped. And a few other minor changes. We have also a new splash screen. It comes from a user of the german CG Community page 3D Ring called TiLation. Many thanks for this fine splash screen image.

Bforartists Version 0.4.2 released

Bforartists 0.4.2  is another small release mainly around tooltips and small quirks. There are still some single line tooltips left. But it makes no sense to change them to multiline tooltips for most of them. New is the Materials Library FX addon. This one is also natively included into Blender 2.78 now. I still have to decide if i deliver this addon in future releases activated or not. The loading times are drastically increased when this addon is active.

The download can as usually be found in the downloads section.
