Hidden import options.

Hi all,

It is now possible to use the FBX translator to import .3ds, .obj and .dxf files directly into EIAS. The translation is the standard used in all other major apps for FBX import, and should provide a much more reliable way to bring these formats into EIAS.

Instructions.

1. Go to the file menu > open
2. Change the file filter to ‘all files’
3. Select a .obj, .dxf or .3ds file
4. Click ‘Open’
5. Press ‘Okay’ on the FBX import box
6. Save the .fac conversion

A new project will open with the converted file.

Just be aware that materials don’t translate well with FBX,
Ian

fraction of numbers in HSV color picker mode

Hi all,

this might be not so obvious but EIAS color picker allows you to input fractions of numbers in the HSV color picker as value, for example 7.5 degrees in the Hue value instead of 7 or 8. This comes in currently handy for me in a project were i have 48 parts which should represent all different colors fom the whole HSV color spectrum 0-360 degrees. As you can see 360 divided by 48 gives you 7.5 degrees. This is pretty cool, due to the fact that not much if at all other programs have this feature. Try that out with any 2D or 3D app in OSX/Windows Color Picker and you will see that this most likely won´t work... and you will have to go another route to obtain the proper values.

Hope that this tip might be useful for someone.

Regards
stefan
