Update RailClone Pro 3.2.0 ready to buyers:

New Features and Improvements

• Added support for V-Ray Next
• Added Support for 3ds Max 2019
• Added Support for Arnold 5.1 and above

– Includes RailClone Colour support

• Updated library with Arnold materials
• Added Supermarket products to the free library. Include 10 new presets, each with multiple product variations.

• Bevels now can be used with Count mode
• Bevels now can be used with Adaptive mode.

– “Bevel Mode” and “Bevel Offset” have no effect. In all cases is used the same type of bevel with offset 0.

• Added “Sync between Generators” to “Random” node. It lets to generate same random values for all Generators.
• Added UVW XForm->”Rotate about Center”.

– It has no effect with Segment’s mapping.

– To make it work identically to the UVW XForm Max modifier, now Scale is applied after Rotation (previously Scale was applied before Rotation).

• Added improvements to Update Manager.

– Update manager can be configured to check if a library has already been downloaded to a network locations. This can save multi-user offices from having to download the same content multiple times.

– iToo Toolbars (both Forest and RailClone) can be disabled adding the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Itoo Software\DisableToolbars = 1 (DWORD)

• Modifiers in RailClone objects are used on nested objects.

– Only if Segment->Nest is not enabled in the outer object. This mode is not compatible with modifiers.

• Added “SubSplineCounter” to expressions.

– Index of sub-spline when using compound X splines. Valid both for array and linear generators. Starts in 0.

– Several array inputs have been renamed, to more understable names according its operation.

– Left Side -> Start, Right Side -> End, Top Side -> Top, Bottom Side -> Bottom, Inner Corner -> X Corner, LT Corner -> Start Top, RT Corner -> End Top, LB Corner -> Start Bottom, RB Corner -> End Bottom

• For “Style->Free Object” the full spline’s transformation is ignored (Position/Rotate/Scale), not only Position as before.

– This fixes a problem with XRef scenes binded to a rotated object.

– Existing scenes may be affected if were using the Rotation or Scale of the spline. This can be fixed re-aligning the RC object with the spline (ie. using Alt+A) for rotation, and applying a Reset XForm to the spline, for scale.

• Added warning when using Point-cloud mode with nested RC objects.


• Fixed: Bevel Extend and Symmetric options are swapped.
• Fixed: When Evenly->Mode parameter is exported, modifies value of Clipping->Mode.

– To fix it on existing styles it’s necessary to recreate the Generator.

• Fixed: Evenly mode generates extra segments on closed splines.
• Fixed: unable to export parameters with same name.
• Fixed: Update Manager doesn’t close properly when launched on silently mode.
• Fixed: Display->”Use Instance Engine” has no effect in Arnold (always is on).
• Fixed rare crash in Expression Editor with some operations (i.e. using Undo when focus is on viewport).
• Fixed issue when Evenly distance is lower than the Evenly Segment size.
• Fixed: Sequence and Material->Sequence operators start with 2 same segments.
• Fixed: animated Clipping splines are not updated correctly.
• Fixed: Style Editor is not closed automatically when RC object is deselected, if an expression is being edited.
• Fixed bugs with No-Bend segments and Y Splines in Arrays.
• Fixed issues with auto alignment to X->XY.
• Fixed crash using Numeric nodes copied from a macro in the main style.

– Numeric nodes of main and macro styles are not interchangeable. Now RC blocks this possibility in copy-paste operations.

• Fixed: Input macro nodes of different types can be rewired.
• Fixed: Macro outputs cannot be rewired with a node of same type.
• Main configuration of the plugin can be defined using environment variables:

-Each registry key used in the configuration may be replaced by a variable, replacing non alphanumeric characters by ‘_’.

For example: for “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Itoo Software\RailClone Pro\MainDir”, you must define the variable “ITOO_SOFTWARE_RAILCLONE_PRO_MAINDIR”

– The minimum variables to run RailClone Pro are the following:

For Network licenses: ITOO_SOFTWARE_RAILCLONE_PRO_MAINDIR=C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\RailClone Pro

For Stand-alone licenses:
ITOO_SOFTWARE_RAILCLONE_PRO_MAINDIR=C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\RailClone Pro

– If you define the variables in a .BAT file, be sure to not include any space at both sides of the ‘=’ symbol, or it will not work (this is a known Windows issue).

– Environment variables are used only by the Max plugin. Other tools as the License Manager requires configuration registry keys stll.

– If both registry keys and environment variables are defined, the variables have precedence over keys (priority order is Variables->HKLM->HKCU).

• Fixed problems with Adaptive mode.
• Fixed precision error when segment ends just at the spline’s limit.
• Fixed crash in Style Editor dragging a Macro category (not a macro) from the Macros tree.
• Fixed Style->Geometry->Vertex Weld, which was broken in latest release.
• Fixed: in Point-cloud mode, Z-Offset is applied twice for segments with Bend off.
• Fixed bug computing Corner on first vertex of closed splines.
• Fixed resizing Note nodes when Style Editor is zoomed.
• Fixed “Simple Y Offset mode” with collinear vertices.
• Fixed bug when using “Extend X/Z Size to Area” and “X–>XY” mode with splines coplanar to XY.
