We made a build but it is wrong and Arthur who builds it is away this afternoon. So I hope he can re-build it later today. 


Here is the latest build notes though:


Update 1:

- In 1* fog was never visible

- Custom AutoUV didn't set all texture and custom settings

- Custom AutoUV and base materials of Lumion couldn't use the original texture UV

- Some new scenes had SSOA range on maximum and a water model in the void

- Our rotated grid AA was not active in 1920x1080 and 1280x720 screenshots

- On ATI cards car colors where black while painting

- Sometimes a material initialisation file didn't load and reinited the material

- Freeimage now uses a different dll name to avoid collision

- Fixed a few issues with bloom improving performance and memory usage

- Deleting and adding a new object with the same name now works

- The white landscape option had a problem with the correct shader

- The landscape set icons now update correctly the first time you load a landscape

- Reloading a model had a problem if surfaces where removed

- on ATI cards characters had incorrect rotation when moving them with the move items movie effect

- the home menu text was not visible on a 2500x1600 monitor

Added / changed:

- When icons are at the exact same position they will now get a small offset this works up to 5 icons maximum

- Added 2d billboard material for custom billboards that face the camera

- Added DDS and PNG to texture loaded dialog

- The LOD of trees for final movie and photo is now 10 times further

- Q and E now move up and down the camera

- Added tangient calculations for original UV maps for use with Lumion material system

- Moved the help button so incidental click is reduced

- Created a paging system for materials so that you can have more materials on a model

- Stopping an animation uses the camera at the moment of stop as the new camera

- Playing shows a play bar in record mode

- Renamed the custom materials and gave new icons and new slider names

- Default settings for materials changed

- Selection of materials for new materials is now order dependend

I think the release candidate Demo version doesn't have it so you will need to look for it in this forum. It is in one of the posts.
