  • Adjusting image when render is complete was broken,this is now fixed.
  • Hooking up Lock Tone Operator control in the Image Adjustment pane

  • Fixed soft shadowing on spotlights. Light radius was hardwired to 1/2 the cone radius and the value specified in the properties dialog was being ignored
  • Changed number of decimal places and change increment in numeric controls in the image adjustment pane
  • Added option to light browser to let you select objects in scene then have the light browser select the corresponding items.
  • Removed JPEG option from Save Bitmap file dialog when saving 32 bit images since JPEG does not support alpha channel.

  • Converted render display image to use less overall memory
  • Crash protected a few places in the meshing code
  • Fixed: The indirect lighting method that is named “On” should be named “Interior”. The other method named “Gather” should be named “Exterior”.

  • Removed “Sun channel” control from the Lighting/HDR (sky) tab.
  • Added “Planar HDRI” to Environment tab background options
  • Added blurriness controls to the transparency tab in the Advanced Material Editor.

Thanks for all of these fixes!

A few questions:

1. Are the settings in the lighting, environment, and render tabs of the control panel supposed to save with the 3dm file? They do not in the March 1 or Mar 10 64bit Rhino5.

2. What default intensity value for HDRI and others got changed? The multiplier in the realtime channels pane is still 5. Is the underlying scale now different by a factor of 20?

3. Render constraints and adjust image settings are sticky, but the channels settings aren't. Maybe an option to keep each of those sticky or not? And if the values aren't at default, that pane should be expanded (or highlighted/blinking) when the next render is launched.
