Added extra layers of safeguard measures in code in renaming of the .xgen files. Users should now be able to rename a scalp mesh even if the name is part of the XGen collection/description names
Ex. If a scalp geo is named as ‘head’ and the XGen collection/description is named as ‘head_col/head_des’. This will work now.
Deep Backup Tool:
To be able to safeguard all the renaming tools introduced, this tool has undergone a decent change.
Deep backup will now make a copy of the entire xgen folders and store them in the data folder.
After a deep backup, your scene will be saved, and another scene will be saved (in the scene folder) with a .temp suffix. The tool will open the .temp file after deep backup. This is to prevent Maya attributes getting saved into the deep backup file in the data folder.
It will now also work for users that save maya format with .mb.
XGen IG Guides to Curves
Converts Interactive Groom guides to curves
Guide Color Tool:
Guide color random settings should now respect the color’s value. It now takes in the Color Random value as a %, then adds to and minus from the color value to get the minimum and maximum value of the color.
Example. If the color value set in the layer is 0.30, with a Random value of 20 (0.2), a value range of 0.1 and 0.5 will be sampled to color the guides.
Curve To Curl:
Attribute sliders are now lowered to 0.001 to allow more control for scenes that do not use real world measurements.
