hi gai & Wendell_Biju,
thanx very much.
the usage of 2 models on 2 layers is a much better way, of course.
it's funny, i use the technique of two version of models in skp since a longe time, i save a dummy of every model , work on it independently and keep a master file for the whole landscape. at the end i reload all components manually and have a finished master.
when this works automatically with the ruby , GREAT, and since i now switch to V8, it's agood time to implement this. thank you very much fir the tip.
and for my "TOTAL RECALL" wishlist topic it then would be important, that
the total recall view can switch all layer settings per view , BUT. a special override function for the model layer must be implemented, to be able to switch the model-layer in all saved views at once( a sort of overall layer switch behind the recalled set of parameters). i use this technique too in my programms. together with the batch picture export.....a dream.
btw, gai, if you can speak to su developers:
i miss a shadow on/of override function , which would allow to switch shadows for the working session, independently of the shadow setting in each scene.
advantage: every scene can be saved with or without shadows, but for the workfllow shadows could be temporarily switched off
and : a function for shadows, where i can change shadow settings for ALL scenes, where the shadow is switched on ( so i could switch off the "shadows on floor parameter" for all scenes at once). i often have 200 scenes in a file, so both functions would really improve my workflow.
regards stan and thanx once again for the lumion tips.
