Arnold : Added support for Arnold 7.2.
PointsToLevelSet : Added a new node for converting points primitives into OpenVDB level sets.
ArnoldOptions : Exposed Arnold 184.108.40.206’s Global Light Sampling feature via a new
ArnoldAttributes : Added
shadowAutoBumpVisibilityplug, since Arnold 220.127.116.11 now correctly implements this feature.
Shader : Added support for shading input connections to splines. After double clicking on a spline to open the editor, you may select a control point, and then drag an input to the value control. Works in GafferImage, GafferObject and Arnold. Supports a max of 32 values in the spline.
FloatSpline and ColorSpline OSL shaders : Added a
directionparameter, with options of
Constraint : Disabled the
referenceFrameplug in the NodeEditor when
OSLObject/OSLImage : Fixed missing
+buttons in GraphEditor on Windows (#5222).
Viewer : Fixed missing VDB visualisations on Windows (#5223).
SceneReader : Fixed reading of USD primitives containing
primvars:normals. These are now correctly loaded as a primitive variable called N, taking precedence over the UsdGeomPointBased normals attribute.
SceneWriter : Fixed writing of indexed normals to USD files, so that the indexing is retained on load. Note that this means that normals are now always written as
primvars:normalsand never via the UsdGeomPointBased
CompoundDataPlugValueWidget : Fixed bug which prevented the addition of new plugs when an existing plug had an input connection. This affected the ContextVariables, CustomOptions and CustomAttributes nodes, among others.
NoduleLayout : Added a warning message when a required custom gadget has not been registered.
GafferUITest.TestCase : Added testing of NodeGadgets to
SceneView : Added Python binding for
ViewportGadget : Added Python binding for
OSLShader : Added support for
enabledExpressionmetadata in OSL shaders. These may provide an OSL expression to control the activation of parameters in Gaffer’s node editor.
Cortex : Updated to version 10.4.7.0.
