AddonList. Assign addon to a tab in 2.7. Render/Auto Tile Size. From BlenderWiki Installation Install the addon by opening User Preferences, and choosing "Install from file... " in the Addons tab. Auto Tile Size should be the only item in the list, but if not, simply search for it. Check the checkbox on the right. Info This addon gives you some quick controls to get the best possible tile sizes for the fastest possible Cycles render.

So this addon allows you to choose a target size and then automatically calculates the actual tile dimensions to ensure squareness and consistency. As a rule of thumb, GPUs like bigger tiles (256 x 256 usually) and CPUs like smaller ones (often 32 square), thus the two target values are stored separately in case you switch between them often. For a detailed explanation of this reasoning, see this blog post. Usage At the bottom of the Performance Panel of the render settings are the target tile sizes. The best tile size will be calculated and the addon will attempt to stick as close to the target as possible. Amaranth Toolset. Animation Jump X Frames on Shift Up/Down When you hit Shift Up/Down, you'll jump 10 frames forward/backwards. Sometimes is nice to tweak that value. In the User Preferences, Editing tab, you'll find a "Frames to Jump" slider where you can adjust how many frames you'd like to move forwards/backwards.Make sure you save your user settings if you want to use this value from now on.

Find it on the User Preferences, Editing. Render Remember Layers for Render If you're doing lighting/rendering tasks, you'll probably have a bunch of layers that you want/need to be enabled for final renders. Cycles Cycles: Set as Render Samples So you've been tweaking the samples per shader amount very carefully, finally found a sweet number that works. Nodes Nodes: XYZ Sliders for Normal Node Tweak the Normal node more accurately by using these sliders.

Scene Debug List Empty Material Slots Having empty material slots with no material assigned to it, is very rare, but can happen. Misc. rRMB Menu 0.6. Hey, I am creating an RMB Menu addon, as an UI experiment, and maybe it will turn out to be handy.You can download the current version here: it is on Github (Help wanted!) - menu makes most sense when you have Blender set up for LMB to select.---21.05.2014 - Not everything is functioning at the moment, because I have insufficient skill to do some of the coding. For instance, first entry is "Place 3D Cursor", but the operator works only when you actually click on the 3D View. So I guess it needs a way to store the mouse position when you invoke the RMB, and then use it when you choose "Place 3D Cursor".Also, I would like to place some of the content from the Sculpt/Texture Paint/Weight Paint/Vertex Paint toolbars into the menu, and I have no idea how to do that. It seems to be possible, as can be seen here - help is appreciated.27.05.2014 - 0.2 Release.

MultiEdit ALPHA 3. Alternative to pies. QuickPrefs. Macros Recorder. From BlenderWiki Installation Hit CtrlAltU to load up the User Preferences (or use the File menu and click Save User Settings). Click the Install Addon... button at the bottom, then navigate to the script. Check the little box on the right of the Addon entry in the list to enable it. If you want to keep this addon available at all times, follow the above steps on a fresh .blend (CtrlN to create one), then hit CtrlU at this point. When enabled, it would add "Record Macro" menu entry to the Text menu in the Text Editor, and a panel in the Tool Shelf with the buttons to record/stop recording and to regenerate active procedural object.

Usage Click on "Record Macro" to start recording; click "Recording... Note that starting the recording from a 3D View would allow you to record some extra context information, such as pivot mode and transform orientation. The addon also allows you to save parameters of procedurally generated objects and regenerate them afterwards.

Import Images as Planes. From BlenderWiki Description This script imports images and creates planes with them as textures. At the moment the naming for objects, materials, textures and meshes is derived from the image name. One can either import a single image, or all images in one directory. When importing a directory one can either check the check-box or leave the filename empty. As a bonus one can choose to import images of only one type. ('jpeg', 'jpg', 'png', 'tga', 'tiff', 'tif', 'exr', 'hdr', 'avi', 'mov', 'mp4', 'ogg', 'bmp', 'cin', 'dpx', 'psd') If someone knows a better way of telling if a file is an image which Blender can read, please tell so ;) when importing images that are already referenced they are not re-imported but the old ones reused as not to clutter the materials, textures and image lists.

If one re-imports images but chooses different material/texture mappings, new materials are created. Has an option to translate pixel dimensions into Blender units. Usage Options: Material options Blender Render. Edit Linked Library Blender Add-on. Nodes Efficiency Tools. From BlenderWiki This addon gives you several tools that help you work with nodes quickly and efficiently. Many functions work for both the compositor and shader nodes, and some functions bring features already in the compositor to the shader nodes as well.

Some tools are made for a specific function, however we have made it our goal to allow complete flexibility for you to use the tools in every situation, even where we did not intend. Please report any bugs, and feel free to suggest features. Use menu in properties panel of Node Editor or CtrlSpace keyboard shortcut or individual shortcuts for tools Lazy Connect Lazy Connect Lazy Connect with menu (Shift) Drag holding down CtrlRMB Make links between the nodes without having to precisely select the sockets. . Also, use Ctrl⇧ ShiftRMB to show a menu of inputs and outputs to make a more accurate connection. Lazy Mix Lazy Mix Drag holding down AltRMB .

UV Equalize and Tube Unwrap addons (updated) Hello, i've got a big update of Tube UV Unwrap, read below..Tube UV Unwrap UV unwrap tube like meshes (all quads, no caps, fixed number of vertices in each ring)notes:Works only on tube-like part of mesh, this is defined by selection. Tube-like mesh is: all quads, no caps, fixed number of vertices in each ring. Best example of such mesh is mesh circle extruded several times or beveled curve converted to mesh. There must be active vertex on one of the boundary loops. Active vertex defined where seam will be placed. Archimesh. Window Generator 2. Add Simple Curve. Generate floor boards quick and simple. I am currently enrolled in Andrew Price's Architecture Academy and in one of his tutorials he mentioned how easy it would be to have a simple script that could create floor boards suitable for architectural renders like those available in some other modelling packages.

He even thought about asking someone to develop it but for some reason or other it never came te be. Add Floor Boards Because I think it would make a useful addition to the ArchViz' modeller 's tool set I put together a simple script Add Floor Boards. Once installed it can be found in the Add->Mesh menu at the to of the 3D view. The object that is generated by the script is a simple collection of rectangular faces adorned with a solidify and a bevel modifier so you can tweak some stuff even after the tool properties are no longer accessible.

Installation Usage After clicking Add->Mesh->Add Floor Board a default floor board is generated. BLAM. Sun Position addon.
