Thanks a lot for update!!! Most problems have gone
Some minors for the sake of completeness though:
- “I would suggest using ‘Shift+h’ as replacement of local mode.”
Thanks, forgot about this universal hiding option. Will use it this way then!
- “When you have multiple hair curves (ribbons) and you work one single item, is should not affect visibility any other hair curve”
Just found why this happened, this is not addon-related at all… I changed visibility with operator panel opened and update operator parameters in that panel… Blender just undo all actions to the point when operator was called. Thus undoing my visibility changes It was not obvious to me, my fault, sorry
- “creating strands from Grease Pencil”
Now there is no errors, thank you! But another inconvenience (imho) arised - after creating strand grease pencil layer became hidden. so any additional grease strokes are not visible… So to add another GP strand i have to manually enable layer and clean up old/previous strokes first.
From other tools it is common to delete grease stroke after use (or have an option for this), which is more convenient - less clicks, smoother workflow
- there is already option in ‘Randomize curve tilt’ called ‘Tilt Uniform’- when set to max value, whole strands will be rotated instead of just the tips. Is that what you are asking for?
No, this is not the same… Tilt Uniform rotates every strand with different angle (though this angle is the same along the curve). In my case i need all strand have the same angle regarding align surface, BUT this angle is not zero, more likely like 30-45 degree. It depends on the camera angle, for better view. So ALL strands are perfectly aligned to reference surface - but rotated on fixed angle inplace. I mean whole strand is rotated (tilted), while curve points flow along surface. More like “align to surface with fixed degree offset, added to each strand tilt”
And the last minor thing - most of actions has “Only selected” checkbox enabled by default. So if nothing special is selected (usually this is so) - operators seems not to work, like “do nothing”. Just not so obvious for newbies, to uncheck it first
