New release, 3.4.24. New feature, Views
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:42:15 AM »
Release 3.4.24
----------------

Dave Pitts has a added a neat feature, views.
Problem: You have 30-40 columns, one for each model. You are scrolling right to left modifying effects
Solution: Views. Views allow you to pick a subset of models that you want to work on. Give it a name. Now when you open a sequence, apply the view. Only those models in your view will show
Question: Does this affect the save process? Answer: No. Even though you view may show 5 of the 50 columns you have, when you press save all 50 will be saved.




Dan Kulp has added a feature to the Star Model.
If your star is in concentric rings (30,20,10) (50,30,20) , you can specify these when creating the model.



I have increased the maximum size of a custom model from 300x300 to 1000x1000



Finally, Don Julien continues to improve the Papagayo effects


XLIGHTS/NUTCRACKER RELEASE NOTES:
=================================
3.4.24   Oct 28, 2014
   -enh (dpitts) New feature to allow creating views. A view is a collection of models. When you select a view it acts
      like a filter and only shows you the models contained in your view.
    -enh (dkulp) Star model can now have multiple star size layers to model exploding star type things
                     Example: a 100 node star may have 50 for the outer layer, 30 for the middle, 20 for the inner.
   -bug (djulien) Fixed multi-cell morph (caused Papagayo flicker), avoid error if try to save file with no pgo data
   -enh (sean) Increased custom model from 300x300 to 1000x1000

This new views feature is VERY NICE handy. Can I add to what should be the next logical feature enhancement... when you hit the Create Random Effects button, can it be for just that one view only - it would save me from having to go to my All Models view, protect all effects, then switch back to that specific view and unprotect the cells. Can I also ask for a new pony for Christmas? 

Thank you Dave, Sean, Don, Dan, (and anyone else i missed) !!!

I love these changes, but the program will not run for me after I install it.  Went back to 4.23 and all is well.  Running win 7 x64 12mb RAM core i7 processor.

Dave, while you were in making the changes did you notice a way to lock the time and label columns so that when you scroll left across the models you still know where you are.

Neil, with the views u show models such that they fit on your screen, u never would need to scroll off screen. It would still be nice to lock first column
