ColorEdge dasn't work properly
« on: January 27, 2009, 12:52:58 PM »
Hi,

thank you for this plugin!

But when I make an animation I have a problem. See please the images.
I begin to render for example from the frame 20. The first image "TorusFrame20.jpg" is ok.  Bat the third image "TorusFrame22.jpg" has a bug. The sixth has the bug still more. And so on...

What is the problem?
The max's file is also in Attach.

3D MAX 2009, 32bit, Direct 9.0c

Thank you in advance!

The problem is a fault of design:

To speed up the computing of faces and edges, we create a geometry cache that is initialized when ColorEdge is created. The problem is that the cache is not updated when the geometry of the object changes, as happens in this scene.

Unfortunately there is not a workaround without modifying the plugin. We will fix this issue for the next ColorEdge release... sorry.
