Title: RailClone Pro 1.1.0 beta
Post by: iToo on January 31, 2011, 08:10:14 PM
Note 1: Beta versions include new features and fixes, but a beta version is NOT the final version of the product and therefore we not guarantee an absence of errors that may disrupt the computer's operation and/or result in data loss. Use it always at your own risk.

Note 2: New .dll files has been included on this release to provide VRay support: RailCloneVRay150sp3.dll and RailCloneVRay20.dll. These files are installed by the setup program in the Max root folder.

New features:

- CPU Multi-core support. Global performance have been improved

- Proxies and high-poly meshes support for VRay:
    * Lets you to render huge number of high-poly objects using minimal resource
    * Proxies and objects are converted on the fly to native render instances

- Mapping Coordinates (Randomness rollout)
   * Avoid texture tiling, applying box mapping to the Segments along the path
- New "Display" rollout:
    * Configurable "Boxes" mode for Viewport and Render
    * Adaptative mode. Use "Boxes" mode on viewport if the number of faces specified is exceeded
    * "Boxes" display mode is more accurate respect to the full geometry
    * Render mode: Automatic mode uses native instances for VRay or Mental Ray. Meshes mode creates a unique mesh for the geometry
    * Build button and Max.Faces and Max.Segments parameters have been moved from the General rollout here
- Fixed geometric issues when applying both random rotation and scale
- Bevel works properly on splines with collinear vertices
- Geometry->Copy From/To works properly on RailClone objects with modifiers
- Fixed minor Library Browser issues

RailClone Pro registered users can download the software from the User Panel ( (My Betas section).
