Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T48583: Bevel Improvements.

Someone else requested something similar to what you suggest -- just that when some vertices get blocked, they stay there and the unblocked ones continue to move. Maybe this should be the default, but I'd like to get some kind of consensus from artists before changing. As you say, it could be an option, but there is a lot of pushback on Blender devs from Ton not to add too many options to tools, but rather make them smart enough to "do the right thing" without options.

Howard Trickey (howardt) claimed T51247: Bevel modifier: Unnecessary clamping.

The problem is that the clamping is very naive right now: just clamps to the min of the half-length of all the edges involved in a vertex bevel. In this case, that means it clamps to the half length of the vertical edge, which doesn't even have advancing vertices on it, and it is a lot shorter than the edge that the vertices move along. It is a TODO to do much smarter clamping, but I'll spend some time now to see if cases like this, at least, can be improved.

Howard Trickey (howardt) raised the priority of T51247: Bevel modifier: Unnecessary clamping from "Normal" to "Confirmed".

This is different from T50994, as it is only about one edge (as reporter notes). It may overlap with one of the problems reported in T50819, premature clamping. I will look into this one now.

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T48583: Bevel Improvements.

Another requested bevel clamping change. See T50994. Requester would like clamp to apply to edges individually rather than globally. Could be consider as breaking backward compatibility for 2.8. Or an option (but we dislike adding too many options).

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T50994: Problem with bevel modifier.

Sorry, the behavior mentioned here in this bug (T50994) is the intended behavior. The clamp that is calculated is a GLOBAL clamp for the offset amount, calculated as the minimum amount that might cause overlap (approximately -- doing it exactly is hard, and a TODO). The reason for this is so that the bevel looks uniform when done -- that is, the widths all look about the same. In some artistic contexts, it could look strange to have some edges beveled a lot and some edges beveled a little (e.g., you might want all edges of a table beveled approximately the same).

I could not get it to crash with my vs2017 release or debug builds. I did try the buildbot 2015/x64/release build, and it crashed, but I don't know how to get a symbol file for this so couldn't get a meaningful stack trace. I have a strong suspicion that the problem now is not with bevel, but somewhere else.

Sorry, I haven't had a chance to look into this yet. The code that prevents overlap is (the 'clamp overlap' option) is only approximately right, since getting it really right is quite hard. But I agree it seems to be failing completely in the case of selecting a whole loop, and hopefully it will be easy to figure out why and correct it.

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T50400: "Blenderman" File Crashes Blender.

I have looked a bit, and made a much simpler file that triggers the same assert:


It seems to have something to do with the geometry being small, too, as scaling the object up and applying scale makes the problem go away.
Will try to find time to look at this next week.
The bug reporter might want to try loading the file I just uploaded to see if it crashes Blender on their build -- that is, try to see if this assert failure indicates that bevel is the cause of the crash, or whether this is a harmless problem with bevel and the real crash is caused by something else.

I'm sorry, I cannot reproduce this problem without a sample .blend file. Please upload the .blend file with the two modifiers, and I will look at it.
I suspect what is happening is that the "clamp overlap" is reducing the width you desire, but that is only a guess without seeing sample .blend file.
Also, is the last picture supposed to be the desired result? If so, could you supply that .blend file too?

Howard Trickey (howardt) closed T50064: When Bevel modifier is applied to specific mesh Blender crashes as "Resolved".

We write our tools under the assumption that the meshes are 'valid'. (If you run the python command mesh.validate(True) it can tell you whether the mesh is valid or not. Rather than try to put all sorts of protective code in all the tools, our policy is to instead make sure no tools produce invalid meshes. At any rate, even if Blender didn't crash, most tools could produce crap results on invalid meshes. Clearly some tool has produced your corrupt mesh -- in the example .blend file that you uploaded -- but without help understanding how that mesh was produced, I'm afraid there's nothing more than can be done here.
Closing this bug, but feel free to open a new bug or reopen this if you can reproduce the mesh corruption (that is, can provide an uncorrupted model and instructions for a next step that causes corruption).
Thanks anyway for the report.

Looking at this now. It seems that the mesh in the test file violates the assumed invariants about BMeshes. If you start blender with --debug, and then toggle into Edit mode, the validation code reports that a particular face has a duplicate vertex and a duplicate edge.

Howard Trickey (howardt) closed T49550: Bevel is not working with Vertex group as "Invalid".

OK, I understand now.
Yes, it is a limitation of using Vertex Groups that you cannot precisely specify which edges you want to include. Because, as I explained earlier, all edges that have both ends in the vertex group will be beveled, and for the simple unsubdivided cube case, you cannot select all the vertices and yet only have a subset of the edges beveled. This is a case where it would be good if Blender also had Edge Groups, but it does not. Using Vertex groups to specify edges to bevel was an imperfect workaround to not having edge groups.

I don't understand what behavior you are expected. The example file looks working as expected to me. When you specify "Vertex Group" as the selection method in the Bevel Modifier it works as follows:

  • all the given vertices are selected, and then those induce certain edges to be selected (the ones with selected vertices at both ends)
  • those edges are beveled

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T49173: Shape of vertex-only bevels is distorted: edges should be curved but are straight.

I call this a feature request, not a bug, since the current behavior is working as designed (though not, as this bug shows, as some users would like). Others have asked for this. While it may seem clear what to do in a case as shown (convex corner of a polyhedron), other cases are not so clear. For instance, what to do if the vertex is in a plane? I can see some users preferring the inward curving edges as you request here; some might prefer outward curving ones (to make a kind of circular shape), while still others may prefer the current flat straight line behavior.

I confirm too. Will have a look soon.

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T48668: Bevel fails in this case.

This looks like a bug I want to fix, so we'll leave this report open and I will fix the bug. Glad there's a workaround for now.

With commit rB520691e5912d2eec you can now control segments with mouse after S toggle. And I fixed the problem with resuming changing offset at the last point you left off, after changing segments or profile with the mouse. And I added the ability to set the segments or profile with numeric input when you are in the P or S mode, respectively.

Good idea. I will do that too, I think.

Ah, good point about maintaining the existing width even if the mouse moves to a different place during profile adjustment. I will fix this.

Cédric: yes, it is possible. The 4th bullet point of this design task "more options ..." is intended to explore this. In particular, the "with setbacks" part of that statement would address what you want here, I think.

Cédric: OK, I commited (with commit rBc8e9e6dda0f9) a change to have the P key toggle in and out of 'adjust profile' mode. I decided to use P rather the Ctrl since Ctrl-B enters bevel and maybe people could continue to hold Ctrl. (Maybe not. At any rate, the P key works and has a good mnemonic meaning.) The Shift key decreases the speed, as suggested (and as it does for decreasing speed of offset adjustment, in normal modal use).

Cédric: do you have a suggestion for how to control the profile during modal? I guess maybe some hotkey to hold down to make the mouse movement affect the profile rather than the offset? Any suggestion for which key, if so?

Better handling of profile = 1, profile = 0.25, and implement profile = 0 cases
