    Form.Z 8.6.0.2 – Text Issue

    Trying to place a Text with «Smooth» option, often leads to an error as shown in the screenshot attached to this post. If editing an existing Text in the «3D text Editor» the function is not as expected: E.g. the change of the font type clears all other parameters, such as «adjustment».

    form•Z 8.6 Update Released

    Could you kindly bring back the automated «Check for Update…» functionality back again in Form.Z 8.6.0.2 ?! Or could you at least indicate the exact version and build number in your download section HERE. It is really very cumbersome with all the adjustments in recent times, which have such big effects even in the smallest version jump ...
  4. Dear pylon I am using Form.Z 8.6.0.2 and Maxwell 4.2.0.2 with MacOS 10.13.3. I have did as you suggested just above. Same thing: Overexposed previews with «Realistic Match». For better investigation I have made a brand new Form.Z file. Then I added a new Material out of the Form.Z library (Brick 01). I made 4 different Versions of it, you may take a look in my Form.Z which I have placed on my Google-Drive. The Preview of «Fastest» still looks best, but I have to admit: In final render the original Form.Z material is a bit overexposed as well… By the way: Does it matter for the final Render, which «Material Type» ( Shaded / RendersZone / Maxwell / Vray ) is selected in the Material Preferences? Cheers!
  5. @Craig: Thank you for your suggestion. All parameters for Glow are set to 0. @pylon: Find a zipped Form.Z file attached to this post. The preview looks best, with «fastest» method. If «Realistic Match is used, all previews are overexposed. Materials.zip
  6. Hi Pylon I have done, as you suggested: Removed Vray temporary, but without success. The Preview of «Realistic Match» is unchanged overexposed. Take a look at the new Screenshot. Is it the same as in Mxed? Is the preview setting a small scene, where the Material is saved in and rendered? Where is it located? Maybe I can adjust…? Theo+.
  7. Working with FormZ 8.6.0 Build 10017 and Maxwell Render 4.2.0.2 on MacOS 10.13.3 High Sierra, I found the following irregularity: A Sofbox Light is always visible to the camera, even if the responsible Paramenter are set accordingly. For a better explanation are 2 screenshots attached. Or what did I overlook ...? Thank you for your understanding - or the support. Theo

    Maxwell Softbox Light never hide from Camera

    Hi Pylon Thank you for your reply: I did as described and it worked! Thank you for your support. Now I would appreciate, if you could fix the follow: - Could you please fix that problem, or at least disable the one option if the other is enabled. - Could you kindly take aware of the other small issues, I have mentioned, such as: The Statusbar, the not expected behavior of the preview window and the issue with the saving a image to disk. - Small UI glitch: The slider in Maxwell do not display the «W» correctly, if an amount is over 999 (because 4 numbers take to much space). Cheers, Theo.

    Maxwell Softbox Light never hide from Camera

    No. I mean I can not save a finished image after the render via Menu > File > Save image... It does not matter, in witch image file format I try, nor the location, nor the name.

    Maxwell Softbox Light never hide from Camera

    Hi Pylon As you have requested, I have prepared the FormZ file. I will send you this file together with the MXI and the Screenshots right after via WeTransfer. In the Screenshots I have placed some captions for better understanding. During that process I figured out an other quite worse issue: I am not able to save a finished render image to disk. Evertime a press the OK button in the save dialogue, Maxwell crashes. I tried several image file formats. Cheers!

    My wish list for V9

    Should be obvious nowadays, all points. Especially since certain features in version 6 were still available… 11. Bring back DRAFT 2d workspace!
  12. Great! Thank you. Version 6.7.3 is still a stable and useful tool – especially the drafting part!

    Yes, the UI is really a bad and sad story. Since the first days Version 7 came out, I have reported again and again issues, bulky things and desolate designs of the UI to Autodessys, without understanding. This is all the more pitiful, since the program actually offers great features and the versions up to v6 were so elegant…

    Using FormZ 8.6.0 Build 9995 and V-Ray 3.6.0.2 I would like to say, that it is getting better and better, but: If there are already some V-Ray Materials defined, Form.Z crashes very often when create a new one by clicking in the materials palette. By the way: I would appreciate it, if you would adjust the design of the V-Ray render viewport...

    Issues with Auto-Save and Undo In Form.Z 8.6 Beta Build 9985 the Auto-Save function is not working anymore. The interval is set to 10 minutes. The destination folder is a new set custom folder. But after there will be no Copies… From time to time, it suddenly stops the Undo function. I could be, that the corresponding menu point is greyed out. And then there is no way to return… Both is very sad… :-(

    In memory of Paul Helm

    Only now I have discovered this thread. It touches me sincerely, then I also had for years contact with Paul via e-mails I have sent to the support. I always had the feeling that someone was straightening up to take care of my (small) computer problems. My sincere condolences to the family. Kind regards from Switzerland.

    Future of Formz

    Please ensure that the version 6.7 runs with the latest version of MacOS! It is not only that the UI of Fz 8 is scary – there are still some features, which I miss painfully and which were in available in 6.7 : The scale-appropriate represent or render of window. The simple export of Hiddenlines as DXF. Operations with simple lines, such as trim and expand. Please do not hesitate to publish the previews and betas earlier. Please get in contact with us customers more quick concerning your future plans… Theo+. Alfredo Häberli Design Development, Zurich, Switzerland
