Hi,

sIBL_GUI 4.0.2 just came out of the oven!

This release is considered as stable, bringing new features and fixing some issues. I'm putting the development in maintenance and will only release for blocking issues for a few months since I have some others personal projects to run!

The main feature of that build is the new notifications manager that will lead to a reduced number of clicks, and less clicks is better Smiley

sIBL_GUI - Notifications Manager

...

...

and a development video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31_CUIAIhk4&feature=g-upl&context=G244ffcdAUAAAAA...

It's now possible to search in various locations in the Script Editor Component, that should be handy while editing a lot of .ibl files at once.

sIBL_GUI - Search In Files

...

Here is the complete Change Log:

Hello,

sIBL_GUI 4.0.3 is out!

While the minor version has only been bumped by a digit ( 4.0.2 to 4.0.3 ) this is actually an important major build code wise.
A lot of stuff have been reworked under the hood, sIBL_GUI is faster, cleaner and better.

Improvements have been introduced here and there making it more user friendly:

  • New slick Ui theme.
  • Yes / No To All for various dialogs.
  • Ability to purge the Database from invalid entries.
  • Views default message.
  • Wizard when no Templates are found.
  • Support for multiple concurrent instances ( Although it's not recommended for Database integrity ).
  • Exceptions reporter.


...

sIBL_GUI can now act as a TCP server and / or client and be remote controlled or remote control other TCP servers through the new TCP Client Ui and TCP Server Ui Components, for instance I use it at work to communicate with Katana and Maya.

An exceptions reporter that will keep us informed whenever the application encounters an unhandled exception using https://www.crittercism.com/ has been implemented.

sIBL_GUI is now also a proper Python Package available from here:
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/sIBL_GUI.

If you have Python, PyQt and pip, you can install it issuing:

Code:
pip install sIBL_GUI 



Now for the fun stats, this release represents:

  • Around 580 commits over 5 repositories ( Not accounting the various tests not version controlled or discarded ).
  • Around 275000 lines changed.
  • Took around 6 months to complete ( Although I had a quieter rhythm compared to the 4.0.0 release ).


Here is the complete Change Log:

sIBL_GUI - 4.0.3 - Stable:

sIBL_GUI 4.0.3 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/sIBL_GUI/issues?milestone=4&state=closed
Umbra 1.0.4 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Umbra/issues?milestone=4&state=closed
Umbra 1.0.3 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Umbra/issues?milestone=3&state=closed
Umbra 1.0.2 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Umbra/issues?milestone=2&state=closed
Manager 2.0.3 - Stable - https://github.com/KelSolaar/Manager/issues?milestone=2&state=closed
Manager 2.0.2 - Stable - https://github.com/KelSolaar/Manager/issues?milestone=1&state=closed
Foundations 2.0.4 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Foundations/issues?milestone=2&state=closed
Foundations 2.0.3 - Stable - https://github.com/KelSolaar/Foundations/issues?milestone=1&state=closed

  • Implemented an unhandled exceptions reporter connected to https://www.crittercism.com/
  • Ensure that sIBL_GUI frozen version doesn't require administrator rights on Windows.
  • Overall Ui style update ( ScrollBars, Icons, etc... ).
  • Add wizard for case when no Templates were found.
  • Loader Script Component now uses TCP Client Ui Component interface.
  • Implemented mechanism to flush invalid / missing Database entries in Database Operations Component.
  • Implemented Yes to All / No to All buttons in relevant dialogs.
  • Implemented Trace Ui Component.

  • Implemented command line support for modules execution tracing through -t, --traceModules parameter.
  • Implemented support for per instance logging file.
  • Views display user friendly default message.
  • Rename Db Component to Database.
  • Rename Database Browser Component to Ibl Sets Outliner.
  • Add support for Python 2.6.
  • sIBL_GUI is now a distributable Python package: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/sIBL_GUI
  • Dropped support for XSI_Arnold_Dome_Light, XSI_Arnold_Standard and XSI_MR_Standard Templates.
  • Dropped support for 3dsmax versions prior to 3dsmax 2010.
  • Dropped support for Maya versions prior to Maya 2011.
  • Disable mentalrayGlobals.passAlphaThrough attribute in Maya_MR_Standard and Maya_MR_Lightsmith Templates.

Cheers!

Hi!

I just released sIBL_GUI 4.0.4!

This is hotfix that should address the 3 exceptions I got reported in the 4.0.3 build, especially the encoding related one that made the 4.0.3 pretty much unusable for some users.

Here is the complete Change Log:

sIBL_GUI - 4.0.4 - Stable

sIBL_GUI 4.0.4 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/sIBL_GUI/issues?milestone=5&state=closed
Umbra 1.0.5 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Umbra/issues?milestone=5&state=closed
Foundations 2.0.5 - Stable - Milestone: https://github.com/KelSolaar/Foundations/issues?milestone=3&state=closed

  • Fixed the encoding related issues preventing the application to work properly.
  • Fixed ui related exception in Online Updater component.
  • Prevented exception in TCP Server Ui Component when requested address is not available.


Don't hesitate to let me know if any issues or whatever!

Enjoy!

  • Implemented a better version rank calculation definition allowing to properly compare various version formats.
  • Ensured Reporter is not initialising the Crittercism Client API 2 times.
  • Handle Templates with no attributes sections.
  • Fixed onlineUpdater Component exception when trying to install the Templates in an user defined directory.

Hi,
Thanks for this awesome plugin, just made my renders that much better and more realistic. Smiley

I just have a question, from KelSolaar/sIBL_GUI_For_Maya

I noticed there are 2 files that i did not get when i downloaded the SIBL plugin. gatherfiles.sh under the utilities folder and .gitignore. Where would i put these files in my installation or users directory?

I downloaded and am currently using SIBL GUI "STABLE" for maya. I would also like to know what is the difference between SIBL stable from SIBL nightly? What would the SIBL umbra be also for?

Hello!

If you grabbed sIBL_GUI_For_Maya from source you will have some more files that you can ignore ( gatherFiles.sh is the file I use to package the helper script, and the .gitignore file and .git directory are used for version control: http://git-scm.com/ )

The difference between the Stable and the Nightly ( Not really Nightly since I don't do a daily build ) are that the Nightly build is much more unstable and less tested than the Stable.

Voila!

having some problems with installing sIBL_GUI.

Ive installed with .exe file for Windows, but when I try to open the app nothing happens.
I can see the process popping up in the task manager, but it exists straight after. I also tried with the cmd -v 4 option, but still nothing happens.

I have Python 2.6.4 and PyQT installed.

Hi,

Same problem here.
It was working perfectly fine but today I launched the program and nothing happened.
I reinstalled the sIBL again but the issue is still there.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Hello!

Can you try to see if specifying a custom preferences directory using the -u parameters helps?

Code:
sIBL_GUI.exe -u C:\My\Custom\Preferences\Directory 



At least I'll know if it's coming from corrupted preferences or higher level issues.

Hey,

I tried that but it didn't work. sIBL doesn't respond at all.

Thanks.

Allright, this is very odd, you have tried a fresh install I guess also? ( Removing all the preferences and installed files )

Yes, it's a very strange thing.
I've been using sIBL over the years and it worked fine all the time on my computer(s).

I tried to uninstall sIBL, re-install it again and tried to launch it specifying a custom preferences directory, but it didn't work.

Where can I find the original preferences directory? So I can delete that folder, maybe that one is causing the issue.

Thanks!

Depending on your os: http://kelsolaar.hdrlabs.com/sIBL_GUI/Support/Documentation/Api/resources/pages/...

I will release a new build this weekend and will try to provide a console executable also, so that it's possible to get details on whats happening on startup.

Hi,

After some tests my sIBL is working again Smiley
The problem: My antivirus "Avast" was blocking the software.
Why? I have no idea, but this antivirus is all the time updating from the net so, probably it got some unwanted updates which were causing the issue.

Thanks for the support!
