Shaders : Added support for attribute substitutions in all string shader parameters. Tokens of the form
<attr:attributeName>will be automatically substituted with the value of
attributeNameat render time. We recommend using this mechanism for passing texture paths to shaders, while allowing the paths to be modified independently of the shaders themselves (via a CustomAttribute node) (#3331).
This mechanism uses the same syntax as Arnold’s native attribute substitutions, meaning that substitutions now occur in Gaffer before reaching Arnold.
ShaderTweaks : Added
ignoreMissingplug that suppresses the error that would normally occur for an attempt to tweak a parameter that doesn’t exist (#3353).
ImageTransform : Added
Layouts (#3323) :
Added pinning menu option for following numeric bookmarks.
Improved legibility of pinning menu.
Viewer : Added X-Ray shading mode to the scene Viewer (#3344).
ArnoldLightFilter : Fixed bug whereby changing a
light_blockerparameter during an interactive render caused the transform for the blocker to be reset (#3358).
ArnoldShader : Fixed bug which could cause user defaults for shader parameters to be ignored (#3333).
Orientation : Fixed UI for “Quaternion XYZW (Houdini)” mode. Previously the
quaternionplug was disabled in this mode (#3352).
StandardAttributes : Fixed popup menu for the
Layouts : Improved handling of errors when loading a layout which contains a missing editor (#3355).
ScriptWindow : Fixed automatic creation of ScriptWindows so that it interacts correctly with custom code that calls
ScriptWindow.acquire()on script creation (#3362).
GafferCortex : Fixed bug which caused plug connections and values to be lost when reloading a Parameter. Also added support for StringParameter userData that specifies StringPlug substitutions (#3370).
OSLExpression : Fixed bug that caused execution to request
context.getTime()even if the expression didn’t need it. This could cause errors when dispatching tasks (#3373).
Arnold metadata : Disabled
Scene Path Browser : Fixed a bug when browsing a scene for a promoted plug (#3377).
NumericBookmarkSet : Added new set subclass that mirrors numeric bookmarks (#3323).
TweakPlug : Added
MissingModeenum arguments to
ScriptWindow : Added
MenuBar : Added
addShortcutTarget()method to allow keyboard shortcuts to be associated with windows other than the parent window of the menu bar (#3359).
CompoundEditor : Added
editor()method that can be used to find an editor that the user is currently interacting with (#3372).
OpenGLShader : Added support for glsl source code parameters (#3344).
ScenePath Binding : Prevent crashes caused by passing None to constructor (#3377).
