Sadly, we can't. But the Maya Help is great in that respect: -1 -1 matrix = SP * S * SH * SP * ST * RP * RA * R * RP * RT * T a little further down the line, it is said: RX = | 1 0 0 0 | RY = | cy 0 -sy 0 | | 0 cx sx 0 | | 0 1 0 0 | | 0 -sx cx 0 | | sy 0 cy 0 | | 0 0 0 1 | | 0 0 0 1 | RZ = | cz sz 0...

Obviously I will be of no more help on rotation matrices. I didn't expose the problem correctly to my friend and so it's model was incorrect. Alas he has no time right now to provide a new model. I can now focus on something different ! Me neither. Spent 3h trying all kinds of rotation orders, but ...

While trying to write Rotation Matrixes for the MayaToIndigo exporter, well, we got stuck. I checked the Skindigo tool but couldn't find any reference to rotation code. As this will eventually concern every exporter that generates instances or that will implement efficient transformation-based anima...

Depending on the background of every user, different things might be important, and might be possible to be changed by the user, or not. Lyc, that luminance-output would be positively cool from you to realize! Apart from that, before getting upset, please read the posts: I was talking of sampling "o...

Hi Adam, i'll have a look in RM sometimes, when I get mti back to working. (Currently I've a working Rev. 29 at work, a new Rev at home, and I have to look into the preferences settings things to get that exporting anything) Concerning your problem with geometry not exporting, sometimes it helps to ...

Such a service would be sweet, I'd guess even at a slightly higher price point, if: - the compute power is available when requested and - a secure data transfer can be guaranteed, though how to meet strict req. is unclear. For someone working with an engineering company, sending confidential informa...

1. you can get luminance from the .igi file i presume, that stores CIE XYZ, of which the Y channel is luminance. Great, alas, I can't. Maybe I put my head to violet sometimes. The background is that a software like dialux provides some valuable basis for ergonomics and certification requirements. M...

Additional Outputs: Luminance Output, Z-depth,mat.l/obj. id

Since IES is going to be supported, it would be great if a light-intensity map could be generated as an extra image. That would allow architects or anyone concerned with qualitative statements on lighting analytical means of reasoning, and would make use of Indigos physical accuracy there. Z.depth w...

Hi Dougal, I've added a call to mti_SavePathToFile() in the mti_Main.mel in the menu "tools". Upon first call of mti, I get following answer: // Error: line 0: No object matches name: mti_settings.mti_ // guess that's not a problem, second time seems to work though. Your correct, it's called "mti_Sc...

Hey guys, fabulous work so far and everything: But I am getting frustrated with the whole settings thing. Suddenly, we have a prefs file (.mel) and a prefs file (.txt). And that's only where the confusion starts. I like the idea of moving the whole elements out of the standard indigo-installation di...

just briefly: Let's stick with one file containing all the prefs: We could clear the script up by something like global proc Bla () { // edit these settings to your liking $mti_InstallDir = "bla"; // path indigo is installed in $mti_AlternativeInstallDir = "blaBla"; // alternative path indigo is ins...

500 is fine with me! We should probably also add a statement that hints at low values of power drawn / efficacy if the values are within the range of 0..1. (Do we need a feedback line?) Concerning the Rotation Matrix: I've made a small proof of concept, even though the result has a different orienta...

I've just commited an update to SVN, and it would be great if that code could be checked / added to... I've added phongE support that it now acts as a container whose comment (the .notes attribute) is directly passed to indigo. By using certain keywords, some phongE or global values can be passed to...
