Having found this topic about v2 and seeing date the posts were made (back in years 2012 2013) makes me laugh... and cry... in tears.It is "half life 3" all over again. (Hope you understand the reference).If you don't, it means: "Next major version probably will never be released..."Prove me wrong and I will be a happy camper.Also back to post one in this thread:Current gfx meta-mesh is slow as snail.. Even slower than max native blob mesh..
Did a test- 6889 vertex snow cover like object. GrowFX Metamesh- 3 minutes, Blobmesh 3 seconds.
Nowhere near Thinkbox Frost like we would all want.
Multi-threaded meta-mesh would be great to have in growfx version 3. My grandchildren would be grateful, probably.
My current wishes:1. Node based UI, so you can see everything in one view, not multiple popup windows like it is now:
2. Not backward parenting child objects logic. It is counter intuitive.If I want to change branch length based on its position on parent, that parameter should be available from branches length parameter, not only from its parents parameters.
Node based layout should solve this by default.
3. Library. Now is none. I can only learn from best I`ve seen (free) Krrol growfx plants: https://exlevel.com/forum/index.php?/profile/812-krrol/ Kudos Krrol
4. Some getting started tutorials.I watched some Spanish YouTube videos which are the best training source so far. (Official documentation is fine for general understanding though, but no official material is good as "hands on" training.
Going from version 1.9.xx to 1.10 is misleading and deceptive numbering and marketing. Everyone expects v2.0. It was not version 1.09.
TL;DR version 2 was planed in year 2013. I almost lost hope. Software felt behind initial hype, industry trends and standards.
