Bforartists 1.0.0 final released

Post by Tiles » 11 May 2018, 08:48

This is it. Version 1.0.0 is gold. This development cylce is finished. Many thanks for all the help and support. Thanks to the team members. Enjoy Bforartists :)

The download can as usual be found in the download section. https://www.bforartists.de/content/download

We have also as usual first the Windows binaries ready. The Mac version will most probably follow this weekend. We have unfortunately still no good news for Linux. No maintainer anymore. But you can always build it by yourself. The source code is at Github. And the advice how to compile Blender works for Bforartists in the same way.
The release notes are located here: https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforart ... senotev100

The changes between RC1 and the full version aren't really worth mentioning it. We just catched two last minute things.

I have still to point at Cuda in the 32 bit Windows version. GPU rendering may or may not work for you. Cuda 9 doesn't support the outdated 32 bit architecture anymore. I have compiled the 32 Bit version with Cuda 8 now. But it throws still an error with my Nvidia 1060. So expect GPU rendering not to work in the 32 Bit version. Please upgrade to a 64 Bit Windows in this case. It is more than time!

We thank you, sir :)

PS: drop the 32bit support - its 2018 :)

Thanks :)

Yes, this was the last version with 32 Bit. Blender will drop it with Blender 2.8 anyways. Nvidia has ended support for 32 bit drivers ...

I can use Bforartists!
I avoided it because I know Blender shortcuts and didn't want to learn yet another set of shortcuts, then I saw a youtube video showing that you can change to Blender defaults.

My setup is
1. use Blender defaults
2. change to left click selection
3. change view navigation to Maya style (alt-left,alt-middle, alt-right for rotate,move and scale)
4. change mesh loop select to double click so it doesn't clash with the maya navigation

Looking forward to exploring all the improvements like delete without the confirmation.

Thanks for this release Tiles and your team :bananathumb: , lot of work behind this release, for information i have found a mistake in your download page, see the sentences with green text and locate the word "digigally" at the beginning, it need to be corrected in "digitally".
