View Full Version : AD: exrTrader V1.0c released

07 July 2007, 06:48 PM
db&w announces the release of exrTrader V1.0c.

exrTrader V1.0c is available for Windows 32bit and 64bit as well as OSX (both the CFM as well as the UB version). The download archive contains all versions.

This is a free upgrade for existing users.

You can download the latest release at (free registration required for the download).
The normal OpenEXR image loaders and savers are free for use, the exrTrader Layered Buffer Export requires a license.

Changes in exrTrader V1.0c since V1.0b:

Fixed Bugs:

exrTrader crashes if the GUI is open and you click on the plugin list entry again
Saves in wrong directory
LimitedRegion Border doesn't save using the buffer saver
Doesn't read YUV images
OSX Version of exrTrader doesn't compress images
Custom channel names are now loaded and used (they were saved... but not loaded)


The Master plugin settings are now respected by the saver, so both 32 bit float and 16 bit half images can be saved using the vanilla saver. 16bit float is the default. 32 bit integer is not supported and will revert to 32bit float
Multiple instances of exrTrader in a scene will now load back their settings properly. Previously only the settings of the laster image filter where used... multiple times.
The windows version uses a different low level i/o implementation to load/save data. This is mostly technical in nature, but might result in slightly faster loading/saving.
OSX CodeWarrior: changed compiler settings to make the vanilla saver with all build of LightWave (thanks to Chilton for helping me out here).
Improved support for loading and saving images that are not RGBA in the vanilla loader and saver.
Added support for handling foreign characters in file names

We hope you enjoy working with exrTrader.

Best Regards,

Your db&w team.

Oh well, something always slips by...

We just made V1.0d available, which fixes an issue regarding the settings for saving OpenEXR images:

V1.0d Fixed Bugs:

The "OpenEXR Settings..." Generic plugin would apply and add exrTrader, not the "OpenEXR Settings..." master handler.
Fixed a bug crashing LW when the Settings master handler was removed.

Sorry for that :banghead:

The new version is available in our downloads section now.
