Hi.

Does anyone know a script or something that works kind of a Notebook and stays «attached» to a scene, so you can take notes about that scene and models.

It would be great. :cool:

I'm nnot aware of one but it's a great idea...Kinda like the notes you can leave in Photoshop...great when working in a team ...

You can add 'comments' to an object, then run a plugin to make those comments appear at the pivot point of the object.

If I had LW right in front of me I could direct ya to it, but I'm on my laptop. Heh.

Thought I'd at least try to help. :)

NanoGator, what I had in mind was some kind of journal to a project.
Thank you anyway.

Ah. :)

Well, let me ask you this:

Do you want the journal to:

a.) Add to your portfolio

b.) To record your ideas

c.) To maintain continuity so you don't get lost in your project

d.) ... something I haven't though of?

Understanding that, I might be able to help ya... :)

b) and c)

When I'm fine tuning materials , hypervoxels and so on, I use to right the values in a real notebook.
I think everybody does it.
This digital notebook was intended to substitute the paper one, and, 6 months after, I still could see what I did to acomplish some task or how can I do something that I don't recall anymore.
If it stayed attached to a scene or a model, it would be perfect.

:beer:

Cheers

Ah, good for you! I wish I was better about that..

Have ya thought about using Word? (Or even Wordpad?) You can do both text and screen grabs in there...

Come to think about it, I might give that a go for my next proj!!

You can open up a scene with WordPad and I'll bet someone knows hows to add comments without touching the original scene.
Its funny cause it looks like a LScript except without all the commands.

Photoshop type stickies would be great. I'm always taking notes on a writting pad on my desk... is just a matter of time before I loose track due to so many notes. I usually do that for surfacing and position/rotation settings that might need to go back to if needed.

good idea. Stickies!

wgreenlee1,

I will follow your tip.
I'll take notes in Notepad and then paste it to scene file in the notepad.
I'll be waiting for the stikies.
Perhaps some good soul could come up with them.;)

I think I'm going to start doing it to if I have a really important scene that I would be working on.
Like,if I have an idea for use later on during the scene creation them I'm going to write it in the scene file.
Another thing like you say material settings and the like could also be used in case of altering the original surface settings with out saving it first.

G'day gents!

There is a comments script for LW.

Look under generic L_scripts in the scene tab. You can add comments on a per object basis. You can add a null and apply the item comment display custom object to see the comments in the viewports! It is the same way all those cool rigs have all the control objects labled.
This is what i love a bout LW the most. There seems to always be a workaround, if a real solution can't be found!



These things are hard to find when those scripts zip by so fast.
Hey William, this would be a great thing to fix.

It'd be cool if comments could be attached to the schematic view...
