Added manipulator for disk and point light radii.
Added manipulators for cylinder length and radius.
Tools Menu : Added “Metadata/Clean Up” menu item to optimise file size by removing redundant metadata.
CollectScenes : Improved performance when computing sets, with a 3x speedup being seen in one particular benchmark.
LightTool : Changed spot light and quad light edge tooltip locations so that they follow the cone and edge during drag.
Arnold : Improved speed of translation of encapsulated scenes when using many threads.
CollectImages : Added
addLayerPrefixplug, to allow the layer prefix to be omitted in the case that the input images are already prefixed.
OSL Expression : Added support for getting an element of an array context variable using
contextElement( variableName, index )or
contextElement( variableName, index, defaultValue ). Negative indices can be used to get elements relative to the end of the array.
ValuePlug : Fixed hangs and poor performance caused by plugs depending on upstream plugs with an identical hash (#4978).
Filter : Fixed bug which allowed the
scene:pathcontext variable to “leak” upstream via the
Filter.enabledplug. This caused unnecessary evaluations of the input, and also provided a loophole via which the filter result could be made inconsistent with respect to descendant and ancestor matches.
Fixed a bug preventing anything except strings from being copied and pasted.
Fixed likely cause of crash when resizing Spreadsheet column width (#5296).
Reference : Fixed rare reloading error.
PlugLayout : Fixed lack of update when
Dispatch app : Removed unnecessary and misleading “Execute” button.
SceneAlgo : Fixed history queries for
ScenePlug.objectin networks with nodes derived from
ObjectProcessor. These include :
Metadata : Fixed redundant copying of metadata when promoting plugs.
OpenColorIO : Fixed hang when opening a script which didn’t yet have the
Context : Fixed bug preventing the retrieval of
V3fVectorDatafrom a context.
Process : Added
acquireCollaborativeResult()method, providing an improved mechanism for multiple threads to collaborate on TBB tasks spawned by a single process they all depend on.
ValuePlug : Added
DefaultCachePolicy and deprecated
RegistrationTypesenum that allows the different types of registrations to be identified.
value()overloads that provide finer-grained queries based on the type of registration.
persistentOnlyarguments in favour of new
deletablemetadata from being copied during plug promotion.
MetadataAlgo : Added
Cortex : Updated to version 10.5.3.0.
