Hello, just for my curiosity, isn't Blender 2.92 as well as 2.93 based on Python 3.7.7? Why are you compiling for Python 10, not yet officially supported for the Blender development? I read there are plans to move to Python 3.9 but that's all I know about. I repeat it, just for my curiosity. Thank you.

Hi Paul, I simply verified that your issue was replicable with and without your sample files. At this point it's better to leave this into the good hands of the developers for further investigations.

How is it that the versioning has switched directly to 2.91.2? This version numbering is both in the file names (https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.91/) and in Blender itself (as shown in the splash screen). Probably, this was intentional but, just in case, I let you notice it. Thanks.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T83824: Cannot Install Some Addons.

This is not a bug. Some zipped add-ons are not properly set for direct installation from the zip file. If the add-on is just a single xxxx.py file, it should be packed singularly. In the contrary, if it is made of more that a single python script, these should be placed inside a dedicated folder, and the main script should be named

__init__.py

(with two underscores before and after init).
If you check the content of the zip file you attached, the "singular file script" is placed inside a folder but there is no "init__.py" and Blender don't know how to handle it after you install it. You have two solutions: 1) extract the single xxxx.py file somewhere, then run the installation procedure in Blender, choosing this single python script; 2) go to your add-ons folder and look for the CircularArray-master directory that has been created when you installed the add-on; inside it you will find the CircularArray.py script, rename it to init__.py. These steps should solve your problem.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T82223: A.N.T. Landscape - Error when eroding landscape after deleting vertices.

The issue is that you shouldn't change topology of the mesh deleting single vertices. If you, instead, delete an entire row of vertices, it works when you click on Landscape Eroder. This applies to all current versions: 2.83.8, 2.90.1, 2.91.0, and 2.92.0.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T77897: Materials Library: Addon doesn't check if matlib folder is present or not .

The above behaviour happens also on Windows 10, and I can confirm that the second time you try to activate the add-on the \matlib folder is created again and everything go on smoothly.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T74801: Can't create new libraries.

When the add-on is activated in the Preferences, and if you haven't previously set a path in the add-on's preferences, a new folder will be created inside the Blender's root installation directory, named \matlib, and new libraries will be added there. That might be a reason for the user not being able to create a new library, because probably he has no rights to do it. The user should try to set a path for the materials folder outside of the Windows programs directory and check if he has rights to write inside it. The following is a screenshot from my portable 2.83LTS version where as soon as I activated the add-on the folder \matlib was created and new libraries are stored there.

Please check that Filmic is set correctly in the Color Management section of the Render Properties. To me they appear to work fine both in Eevee and Cycles, both in 2.82a and 2.83.0. I can get your second image's result only if I set the Color Management to sRGB. Hope this helps.

I've tested Blender 2.82a official release on Windows 10 64bit (portable version), which is installed out of the Windows control on a separate hard disk drive, and I've been able to create a new library (see the new .blend file inside the add-on's folder in the screenshot below), to add/remove materials, categories and assign categories to materials. So, might your problem be caused by insufficient user rights on the Blender installation folder (and therefore the add-ons folders)? Try to use a portable version and unpack it outside of the Windows Programs directory.

Unfortunately, with such scenario, it seems that even with the previous version 2.79b, when you edit the linked object using the Edit Linked Object add-on (ver. 0.8.1), and then return to the start file, it doesn't apply the correct relative path to the just edited file breaking links to external assets.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T52572: CUDA Illegal address errors Windows.

I started experiencing such an issue after I updated one week ago my Win10 Pro 64bit OS from Build 1511 to 1803 on an ASUS G752VS notebook (NVIDIA GeForce 1070), and then I updated the Nvidia Graphics drivers to the latest version. Reinstalling the graphics drivers (398.11) with a clean install didn't fix the issue. The error appears randomly when switching the 3D View to Rendered mode; closing and restarting blender and re-opening the same .blend project file sometimes it allows the GPU to render without errors.
The Blender version is 2.79b 64bit official portable release; the same issue appears on the latest buildbot releases 2.79.4.
The following are screenshots of the issue appearing after switching the 3D View to Rendered mode inboth Blender 2.79b and 2.79.4:



In the latter screenshot I first did a full render successfully then I tried to switch the 3D View to Rendered and the error was triggered. Hope this helps.

Did you try to run Blender with its default settings? If that way it works, then you might try enabling one add-on at a time to discover which one could be the cause of the issue. You may also run Blender in debug mode and watch the Blender's console messages for clues. The last warning message is easy to fix in the preferences.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T53136: Paint palletes import robustness.

The information about this add-on on the Wiki page https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Paint/Palettes is outdated and still referencing version 0.9 and Blender 2.58 while current version is 0.9.2 and Blender 2.63. Thank you.

As per the R(0°) formula the "sqr" term should stand for or should be read as "to the power of 2" or "squared" not as "square root of":

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T52850: object in edit mode cannot be hidden in layer in outliner.

I can confirm that in 2.79 official release 64bit that's is the behaviour. In Edit Mode you cannot hide the object currently being edited but you can hide other objects in the scene while you're in Edit Mode. It was the same in 2.78 and previous versions.

Sorry, I missed those changes because that is the release notes for 2.8, but what about 2.79 (https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.79/Cycles)? Will these options still be available? Thanks.

Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T52580: principled BSDF Reflected Roughness bug..

Perhaps the "issue" raised by the user is due to the Glossy Indirect pass which if the Filter Glossy parameter is set higher that 1 will blur the glossy reflections, giving the impression that they are missing. Here are some examples and the .blend file created for this tests.

Here on Win10 Pro 64bit (build 1511) portable, and Blender 2.79RC2, the reflections work correctly with zero roughness as you can see below:

Thanks for your efforts. From several years I use this script named Link_Sky_to_Sun_Lamp.py by Oscurart and Greg Zaal: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wap2jimkud5dntv/link_sky_with_sun.py

Hello. I did some tests and found that it got broken with the 2.7x series while it was working with previous 2.6x versions. Hope it helps.
