    • Differences between collection line art usage flag:
      1. Collection line art usage is global, used to specify e.g. if a collection should appear in calculation at all.
      2. Invert collection selection is used to easily select a collection and "everything else other than that collection", making it convenient to set up such cases.

  • New option to preserve contour lines when using face mark filtering. (dde997086c)

  • Noise tolerant chaining. This feature takes advantage of original line art chain which is a continuous long chain, instead of splitting it at each occlusion change, this function tolerates short segments of "zig-zag" occlusion incoherence and don't split the chain at these points, thus creates a much smoother result.
