Dev update #23: 10th year anniversary and... IK?!


Recommended Posts

You two are legends! I've been using MI for almost a decade at this point. And watching it grow from a niche game maker project to what looks like a professional-grade animation software is mind-boggling.

 

 

I thank you for your efforts Nimi. You've been an incredible developer and I wish you nothing but good luck with your next projects.

 

Also give us the source code pls :ph34r:

The blurred text was for suspense for Twitter, the blurred options are;

Keyframe settings:

- Constraints (Above the "Material" tab, will have options for path following and IK if supported.)

Render settings:

- Reflections

- Gamma correction

- Object material maps (Projects won't have the options visible by default for UI cleanliness for new users, will need to manually show the options.)

I never thought I'd live to see the day reflections got added to MI. Are they screenspace, cubemaps, raytraced, or something else?

The new indirect lighting (/global illumination) and reflections use screen space ray tracing.

This is ABSOLUTLY INCREDIBLE!

The biggest advancement in Mine Imator's history must be this one. I appreciate the upgrade, and so do other MI users. HUGE BRAVOS to the Mine Imator Development team for their tireless efforts and commitment to progress Mine Imator for the community, you all deserve a pat on the back for your accomplishment. 👍
I'm really looking forward to this update

everything looks very cool. but I still feel that there are things that I think are missing. one is this topic of local and global position in objects: link

and another topic would be (and I feel like it's still a topic of discussion for years) is the topic of "Bend in objects" (and I mean the bend as the bending of the arms and legs of the characters), I know that it's been here for a long time ( I was present) I know that a vote was made here between the "square bend" and the "soft bend" for version 0.7 of mine-imator and that in the end it was obtained in version 1.0.0. The point is that the "bend" Type applies to all objects that have it, and cannot be applied individually to each object. I think they should make the "bend" not be "global" but that each object has defined the type of "bend" that will be used in the project. In fact, in modelbench they could add the option of "type of bend" with the options "square" and "soft" to define it in the objects.

Likewise, all the work they have done so far is appreciated. I will really look forward to this new version. :steve_wink::Cake:
