[REQ] Layer entities as reference
« on: January 26, 2022, 03:59:53 PM »
Is the subject feature possible? It'd be revolution for those who need to instantly synchronize linked files from other applications

Thanks for the useful suggestion, we've added it to our wish list. I think it'd be particularly useful in combination with the new name matching features.

Best,
Paul

Paul & Itoo devs is there any progress in this direction?
This feature would make our life a LOT easier. Currently using forests in reference mode is impossible in many situations - because visibility can't be saved in scene states for batch rendering.

Nothing yet and no promises I'm afraid, but we're evaluating if it's possible for a future release.

Best,
Paul

I see.. without any obligation, roughly  when the next release is planned?
P.S. it's 2022, competition is too hard, clients need lots of pictures fast, hence batch rendering+render states for visibility per view management is a crucial point.

We are already working on Forest 8.
If there are not problems, first public beta will be available very soon.

 :-* Wow At last ForestSets  with layers (could be saved in Scene states)! Thank you Itoo so much!
P.S. is there any brief "what's new in v.8?" ?
