Deformer names are sorted alpha-numerically in the weight editor and weight paint panel. Now bone2 is listed before bone10.
The bone primitive (Get > Primitive > Implicit > Bone) now has shadow icons like regular skeleton (chain) bones.
The fcurve editor has undergone a facelift and now offers a new working mode and new icons on the toolbar. But don't worry,
all the fcurve editor's previous commands and functions are still there!
Suite vs. Classic Mode
There are now two different modes in which you can work in the fcurve editor:
Suite mode: This mode is on by default and is designed to be used if you're running the Suite version of Softimage. If you're used to
working with other Autodesk 3D applications, you may feel most comfortable in this mode. It displays a simplified set of icons
on the toolbar, and provides the same context (right-click) menu no matter what you click on in the fcurve graph.
Classic mode: This mode provides all tools that you are used to as a seasoned Softimage user. It is the same as in previous versions of
Softimage, although most of the icons look different.
For a list of all the icons available in the fcurve editor toolbar, see the Icon Reference.
To switch between the two modes, do any of the following:
- Toggle the command from the fcurve editor toolbar.
- Right-click in the fcurve graph area and toggle the option (if you're in Classic mode).
- Open the Fcurve Editor Preferences property editor and toggle the option on the Editor tab.
The following commands are new and only in Suite mode, matching the equivalent functions in Classic mode - see Editing a Function Curve's Slope for more information:
Isolate Curve Command
The new command and icon isolate only the selected curves in the graph. This lets you keep your general filtering option, but focus
on just one curve (or a few curves) at a time that you're editing. If you select other parameters in the animation explorer
on the left, their curves are also isolated and then displayed in the graph - see Isolating Selected Curves
