Just finished all the YafaRay changes I had planed. It is working with modelspace and protects workspace. Basically, I don't have any more tS changes in the works. :D

Sounds good, I have updated a few things and the last thing to do is include your YafaRa4tSv9.5
Changes since last update:

Background/Look at Selection
Changed the commands for all of the Look at Selection to :

Code: Select all

RsTool.LookAtSelection('%WIN_ID%');RsTool.LookAtSelection('{2C152F81-45A2-4035-8896-9E49D60C8A7A}')
This was neccessary for the new WinGUID_Bar with the addition of some Zoom to Selection buttons.

WinGUID_Bar
Added tS7.61 original commands to all of the WinID commands, so that they work with a selected view too. Same as above.
Added a Zoom to Selection button with a RMB Zoom to next Object, and a Zoom to next Object button with a RMB Zoom to All.

Cameras
Fixed the YafaRay Camera and all of the YafaRay Libraries that included the camera.

Desktop panel - Widgets
Camera check box is linked to the Object Navigation check box.
Fix in the next update.

Unless I am missing something setting an Axis with the Axis widget is not very precise.
Discovered that if you select the Object's Pivot node, you can then set it precisely using the Info Panel.
Any ideas on a user friendly solution to this?
Fix the Axis widget to move in an exact amount and or a Preference panel with settings to set the Pivot?

I see, looks like the positions of the checkboxes got switched.
Truespace pivot is a weird thing, I don't have any ideas to make that better. That's also the reason for the vertex snap, affect pivot only option.

Took me awhile to figure out how to use your Vertex Snap with the Pivot only option.
You have to select the Source and Target before you Snap it. Duh!
BTW... 'Use the selection as the Source' is not working with the shortcuts and 'Affect pivot only'.

This should be a separate tool.
Using your Vertex Snap script renamed to say Axis Pivot Snap
Have 'Affect Pivot Only' enabled and hide ALL the other Attributes
The selected element would be the Target and Source.
Snap, snaps the pivot and shows the Axis widget.
IE: Two LMB clicks.
Even better with no Text Widget and one Keyboard shortcut key, snaps the pivot to the selected element and shows the Axis widget.
Only downside to this method is the Flattening of the mesh. IE: Primitive objects.

BTW... I like using your Vertex Snap with the Keyboard keys much better than the Text Widget. :D

Well, you should pat yourself on the back then and thank stan for fixing the shortcuts. I get the impression you think I created the widgets when it was you how turned my original script into a widget and added the shortcut keys.

LOL...I knew that was coming! :oops: It was fun though using primitive text as a widget / 3D Status messaging thingy. :)
I do not think I changed the original Key changing UI though. Shortcuts? How does your original script work by setting Source, Target, and Snap?
Since my modifications were commented out, let's remove the Text widget, by all means.
