Avoyd BETA is out with:

  • Automatic render. We're in the middle of reworking the render workflow to make it easier to use. You should expect further changes.
  • Fixed file browser sort by name

Avoyd Beta fixes a problem with .vox import: materials that have been set to be emissive or metallic at some point in MagicaVoxel have an emissive or metallic value encoded in the vox file. This causes Avoyd to render them glowing or with specular even though they're supposed to be diffuse (for example). Avoyd now sets those values to 0 when importing a vox file.

Avoyd Beta fixes cancelling a render causing automatic rendering to fail until a new render is manually started.

Avoyd Beta adds Reference Grids to the voxel editor: x, y and z planes you can position in space for more precise editing.
To try them out open Tools > Edit Tool, the options are under the Reference Grids section at the bottom of the window.
They are a work in progress, your feedback is welcome.

Avoyd Beta adds the Shine Sun Here tool which moves the main light to shine on the area you point to. It is the inverse of Move Sun Here as it moves the sun directly behind the camera.
To use Shine Sun here:

  • Hover the mouse over the area of the model or landscape you want to shine the spotlight on.
  • Right-mouse click and select Shine Sun here from the context menu.

Troubleshooting: if the area is still in shadow, it is due to something being in the way of the sun. You can look behind you and use Move Sun here to adjust the sun position.

Avoyd Beta adds functionality to the Reference Grids in Tools > Edit Tools.

For each one of the x, y and z planes, you can now:

  • Change the scale of the major gridline
  • Toggle between transparent and opaque

To do:

  • Major gridline offset from 0
  • "Move grid here" in the context menu

Avoyd Beta increases the cameras range to 10 x 256000 voxels. You'll get a warning if you try to edit voxels beyond the range of the world AABB: -131072 to +131072 voxels.
