Scene State v9.1.13 ?

Post by Larz2 » Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:33 am

I am testing SimLab Composer v9.1.13 (Trial).

I wish to highlight different objects by changing the material and then capture scene state (all 6 options marked as included). The Scene State Preview image looks fine (correct materials), but when changing different scene states the material don't change, but remain as the last used material. Viewing angle and hide/show works fine.

Is this an error? Or how to make Scene State (Material state) work?

Think about this in the following way.

We have material and we have material properties.

For example you have 2 objects each using its own material, select both of them and drop a material on selection
Now you changed both Material and Material properties for the objects, they are not using the old materials.

But if you changes properties for the material, or drop without select, then you are changing material properties.

Open Material in the scene dialog from the material menu, this will make things clear.

Scene states only saves changing material properties, if you changed all the material it does not know that.

If you need an example, I can send you one.

Thank you for your explanation, but I don't quite understand yet - please send me a simple sample. Thanks!
