Twilight Render 2.17.12

Post by Chris » Thu Jul 06, 2023 8:52 pm

We have released a new update with a variety of fixes and feature improvements.

The Post-processing popup is now resizeable and should be sized more accurately for its content.

The Batch Rendering editor now allows deleting of batch items using the 'Delete' or 'Backspace' keys.
Additionally, some settings issues in the Batch Rendering editor have been fixed.

We are introducing the PBR Material Template for Pro users! The template makes use of the standard format for most PBR materials available for download: Color, Normal Map, and Gloss Map. And while most of TWR material templates are physically based, the PBR template allows you to install materials directly from .ZIP files with auto-assignment of the image textures.

To use the PBR template, select it from the list of Material Templates inside the material editor.

From there you can manually assign Color, Normal, and Gloss, or you can choose to install the material directly from .zip by clicking on the "Install from .Zip" button. Browse to the .zip file you want to install and select it. TWR will prompt you for a folder location to extract the material textures to. Then image files will be extracted and the correct ones will be assigned to the material.

For ease of use, you can specify a folder to use for all extracted material textures. This also makes it easier to find the image textures for future use. You can specify the folder in the Twilight Render Options window, by going to Extensions -> Twilight Render V2 -> Options, and choosing the Directories tab.
