Changelog:
3.4.4
* Added orthographic camera support.
* Enabled adaptive subdivision and displacement for quads.
* Hiding progress bar when it's not doing anything. (e.g. when stopped)
* Added cancel scene build button.
* Made loading scene from disk and parsing run in another thread, so it doesn't block the GUI.

3.4.3
* Added new section plane feature.
* Added new section_plane scene node type.
* Added "full draws" for the OpenGL preview, to redraw more of the scene after movement has stopped if it was skipping objects due to low FPS.
* Added shift-key modifier for realtime camera control, to apply roughly 1/3rd sensitivity scaling.
* Accidentally scrolling the mouse wheel while panning (middle mouse button) no longer changes image zoom.

This also has support for shared shader parameters, but someone forgot to add it to the changelog. :?

Good Stuff! Orthographic camera is very exciting!

Couple peeves as a Mac user:
Command-Q still reloads the scene, instead of quitting the application.
And we are still missing the "File > Save Material" menu for saving materials from an open scene (apparently this shows up in the property editor pane for Windows users - but we don't get it in OSX).

thanks!

Hi,

we've seen this issue before and we know how to fix it. Will upload a new windows build as soon as possible :)

There's that big error window popping on ISL errors instead of the nifty bubble messages, editing ISL is impractical. There wasn't such issue with 3.4.4 closed.

Seems to work here.
It will only use the bubble message while doing realtime changes to the material. When you load a broken material and start rendering it will show a normal error dialog.

As it turns out the issue is specific to displacement shaders. It might as well have been there for longer.

Hi Ono, I'm very interested into the new section "section plane" but I cannot find any reference into the "Technical Reference".

Can tou please post some sample ISL code here?

Thank you

A. Delle.

Check the red subline in the image;)

Regarding that section Plane... why are the meshes simply "cut away"??!
Shouldn't them be invisible to the camera but still be there and interact with rays???
The rooms should be still in the shadow, don't they..?

That result could be achieved by some simple Boole Modifier in C4D...
