Of course, sculpting with simple materials is also possible with Eevee rendered view. It would be nice to be able to sculpt with Subsurface Translucency in real time which is not supported yet, for example details when you sculpt an ear.
NO idea where ‘drawcalls’ impact performance per se, but am I /we likely to see getting into edit mode on 100K > objects faster now ? Everything else is OK ( still slow compared to houdini that I must use atm ), but rotation in viewport ( even edit mode) is SOLID which is appreciated mucho, seems atm its just going INTO edit mode which is the laggiest. Takes too long to get rid of large selected vertices etc, but I get that, no doubt speed ups are coming.THe worst is waiting to go into edit mode for me at least.
no difference between 2 or 1 px in themes, general thickness set as “thin”
Here are some bonus questions:
How can I put the axis indicator at bottom left?
How can I make units display as subunits (1cm instead of 0.01m), not the same as “separate units”
How can I make temporary windows (settings, render result, etc) NOT always on top, so if I click another part of blender it goes background but not closes nor minimise?
Any icons pack to use 2.79 much more comprehensive icons?
Is there a way to view statistics (vertex counts, object name, etc) in the unused space right of the tabs?
talking of tabs… any way to make it a select to use less space?
any way to make the 2 lines option links (edit/object mode, vertex, edge, face, pivot point, snap, etc) into one line?
how can I put an N panel into another tab, so I can see object and cursor position at the same time?
thank you, but I don’t want to use a single unit, I want cm if it’s under a m and mm if it’s under a cm, or km if its more than 1000m, the natural way of measuring things (you don’t say 63360 inches, you use miles), as in 2.79.
I know is more technical to use a single unit, in which case I would use mm, but for non so technical items I like the natural way.
To all these questions, answer is No.
During transition to new design, developers had to make some choices to keep development under control and it was not possible to offer customization on everything.
Recurrent feedback like this one will help to determine future evolution of UI.
But for the moment, unless you have skills to rewrite Blender’s sources code, that is not possible for simple user to make such changes.
User has no control on placement of floating elements like axis/navigation gizmo, HDRI Preview, Text/Statistics, Adjust Last Operation panel.
Icons customization has been reduced to colors.
That way, ability to create derivative themes respecting color codes or monochromatic icons was not confusing learning of new icons. During transition, it was important that everybody had same reference.
Statistics can not be set next to tabs. Because there is no space for that, unless you only use very few workspaces.
You can display statistics directly in Viewport or in Status Bar, at the bottom.
Developers made tabs for workspace because that was a frequent request.
Now, it looks like old dropdown list will become as frequent.
New way has not been done to preserve old way. So, in future, they probably would have to think about a new system supporting both. But such thing could probably take a lot of time before becoming a reality.
In that case, choose Adaptive as length unit.
I am not sure if that responds your question. But, as in 2.79, there is a Keep User Interface option to avoid render temporary window to pop up, in Preferences > Interface > Editors > Temporary Editors.
By hiding Tool Settings Bar, custom orientation, pivot point and snap settings are transferred to Header.
So, just disable View > Tool Settings.
Like in 2.79, shift left click on header of panel you want to see visible in all tabs.
Thank you very much good sir for your time on responding me in so much detail…
I practically don´t use workspaces, just sometimes to manage UVs, but usually I just slide a new panel to open an image editor and then collapse it. In any case I rather have them in a select than tabs.
Statistics in the status bar works too thanks for the hint.
Uhm nop, I want to render in new window, but that window keeps in the way unless I minimise it.
You comparing selected object outline which meant to be thicker with edit modewire frame…
Thru it does look like there is also problem with Outline Width because only difference i see is between 2 and 3 pixels
Scene>Units and select what ever you prefer
You mean like they were in 2.79?
