New Art Pipeline release 2013.2
« on: Feb 26, 13, 01:21:33 PM »

Version 2013.2 of the HeroEngine Art Pipeline is now available for download on the downloads page of the account management system for Hero Cloud developers:

This version of the pipeline is only for developers using Autodesk Maya or Max 2012 or 2013, however Maya and Max 2010 and 2011 are still supported. 

Users of 2010 and 2011 should use the 2012.4 pipeline, which will remain available on the account downloads page.

The primary change is a bug fixed with the HGM2OBJ.exe.  Due to a fix to a long standing issue in the Granny update taken to support 2013 exports, the obj converter for the facegen pipeline was scaling and rotating all meshes even when unnecessary.  The converter now assumes an HGM does not need scaling and rotating unless the new "/S" command is used when calling HGM2OBJ.exe.

Other updates include removal of deprecated FaceGen and Fixseam UI scripts from the Max scripts file.
FACEGEN IS STILL SUPPORTED! The two UI scripts were not intended for release as part of the pipeline and were removed to prevent confusion.
