3.3.0

RailClone 3.3 introduces compatibility with latest render engines, Arnold and 3ds Max 2020, significant enhancements to default scaling modes, a new supermarket library and several improvements to existing features: - RailClone 3.3 (new) adds compatibility with 3ds Max 2020 including support for Arnold, Autodesk's powerful new built-in renderer. - The entire library of built-in presets now include materials for Arnold using Physical Materials, a cross-platform shader compatible with several renderers. - More Powerful Default Modes, Adaptive and Count modes allow you to scale segments to avoid sliced geometry, and they've now seen a significant upgrade with the addition of support for beveled corners. - V-Ray Next and Corona 2 support, RailClone supports the most popular renderers in the industry. - Supermarket Library, a new library that contains 10 new presets for populating food shelves in shops and supermarkets. - Improved Randomization, the Random number node can now be synchronized between different segments and generators, making it much easier to control randomization. - Clipping improvements, use the material IDs assigned to closed splines for conditional effects and the new Auto Align and Hierarchy modes to make it easier than ever to create arrays from multiple closed splines in a single click. - Improvements to RailClone Tools, new options to force instances, generate separate meshes for non-instantiable geometry, or compile them into a single object. - RailClone Color, randomize between up to 20 maps per segment including the ability to tint bitmaps from either a gradient, a random pixel from a texture or a map applied to a surface. - Macros, streamline styles by collapsing complex graphs into a single reusable node that can have its own parameters, inputs and output. - UI Improvements, work more efficiently with the help a rewritten notes node, expandable list boxes, and the ability to export multiple attributes and parameters at once. - Improved UVs, The UVW Xform operator has a new mode that enables it to be rotated around the texture's centre point.

3.0.9

- Added "Separate Meshes" option to RailClone tools. * When enabled, creates separated meshes for the non-instantiable segments, instead attaching all of them. - RailClone Tools generates correct meshes (no instances) for segments using Material or UVW operators. - Fixed crash in Library Browser using libraries downloaded with old version of Update Manager. - Fixed: Clipping Area is not aligned correctly when using Generator->Z Offset. - Fixed crash with some operations after deleting a Note in Style Editor. - Fixed crash in RailClone Lite loading scenes created with Pro version. - Fixed rare crash with Clipping areas. - Fixed behaviour of arrays when using X Rotation and Surfaces (in this case segments are aligned, but not conformed to the Surface). - Fixed endless loop when using circular references between nodes.
