UVLayout v2.08.05 is now available for download by all users. Use the Support Login panel to login to your support account, then click on the Support Download menu to the left to access the Windows, OS X and Linux installers. This update adds more features to the shell Packing tool.
Changes to existing tools:
- Pack Rotation : Added the option to rotate shells by smaller increments (i.e. 45, 30, 15, 10 and 5) when searching for the best packing solution. The rotation testing will now also use multiple CPU cores if available. Note: The Pack Rotation tools are currently only available in the Pro version.
- Pack Wrap : Added new option to pack everything into the 0 to 1 tile but allowing shells to extend over the boundary of the tile if they wrap around into free space on the opposite side. You can see an example of this in action at Example:_Pack_Wrap.
- Pack Coverage : Tile coverage feedback now updates continuously, not just after packing.
- Load options : Clean and Weld are now disabled when running in Maya plugin mode, as selecting these broke the sending of UVs back to Maya.
