This is great. It’s worth getting just for the focus/isolate tool by itself but the entire addon restores much of the missing functionality in 2.8 and it’s great that you can pick and choose what parts of the addon you want or not.

This is so awesome… what a great addition to 2.8. Thank you so much.


(NewVisitor) #4

Why you delete git repo? May be you move it to another server?
So sad… I can’t create package for my os from gumroad ((( (not direct link)
How about
[bpy_prop_collection[key]: key "MACHIN3tools" not found
issue?


(MACHIN3) #6

I have replied and made the repo private. I was hoping you had received my reply via email.

Get it from gumroad please, I’m tired of github messing up the folder name and attaching the -master string.


(MACHIN3) #7

Please elaborate.

This is my overlay for Gentoo Linux


This is something like ubuntu’s ppa, but can update from live git sources, so i get latest versions of all my packages in one click, do you understand?)))
So, for sources without direct link (like gumroad) can’t create live package (Gentoo’s ebuild)
This is cool update mechanism, but not so common.
I am sure there are several users besides myself)))
Therefore, if you yourself are very comfortable using the public repository I ask you to add addon to git
Thank you for developing great tools for blender!


(MACHIN3) #9

Working on a fix right now.

edit: Should be fixed now.

First big thank You for the addon!

In latest Blender 2.80.34 build i cant set Matcap switch. For example when i try to enter ‘matcap_base.exr’ i have ‘NOT FOUND’. (i have file in …Blender\2.80\datafiles\studiolights\matcap)

In Shader Pie in LookDev mode i cant see “Scene World” window.

It is possible to set directions in Yours pie menus? For example ‘MACHIN3_MT_modes_pie’.
Face selection to bottom, vertex to top ect…
When i try to do it in text editor, pie dont work at all.

ps.

two litte typos:

in addon - Name of Material to appAnd

in help website (customize section) - Sreen

Hi MACHIN3,

is there a way to align an object to a face?

Something like


or


(MACHIN3) #14

Right, can you please enter this in the python console and show me what it outputs:

for mc in bpy.context.user_preferences.studio_lights:
    print(mc.path)

I think it’s due to the backslash in windows paths, but want to confirm it first.


(MACHIN3) #15

Use them as they are or edit the code if you want to customize them in that way.

Not helpful.
