Any updates on this? I could not test the patch as I have yet to find a way to build Blender with Cycles :(

Gottfried Hofmann (gottfried) added a comment to D1985: Light Linking.

Light linking is essential for product visualization. We often get requests for lighting that would be impossible in a studio but possible in CG (if there was light linking). Right now we can hack it somewhat by using diffuse shaders and glossy shaders with 100% roughness and making a distinction via the light path node, but there are too many situations where this approach does not help.

I see the problem. But in case of normal objects this behaviour introduces a lot of new problems.

Gottfried Hofmann (gottfried) added a comment to D1404: Force Field Visualization and Debugging Tool.

Btw: Could you add vertex colors or weights to the ribbons? Since the direction is already denoted by the ribbon, you could just use abs(strength) of the force at each point. The max could either be set by the user in the UI (similar to how particle speed display can be customized) or you just use the max from all the points that are visualized...

Gottfried Hofmann (gottfried) added a comment to F206657: forceviz_04.blend.

Comment about vertex attribute: It seems to me like it is using just an attribute, which you can use for a Cycles shader for example. I think it would be better if the user could select a vertex color layer for that so the effect can also be previewed in non-rendered viewport. And using weight layers (for absolute force) could make this even useful for some nice motion graphics effects.

Gottfried Hofmann (gottfried) updated subscribers of T43516: force field noise wrong behavior (?).

I can confirm - the fact that the noise setting is additive is odd (even though common in nature), especially considering that noise can only go up to a strength of 10, thus having little effect on a force field with strength 1.000
