Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T54054: Bmesh boolean modifier fails with co-planar geometry (carve doesn't).

Despite this having been closed, I still intend to spend some cycles seeing if I can make the bmesh solver handle at least some of the coplanar cases. Carve seems to have worked sometimes but not consistently - from what I can read, it is not claimed that it works in those cases but I guess sometimes it did. The algorithm Carve used was completely different from that used in the BMesh code, so pretty hard to just adapt the parts that may have been solving the coplanar problems. As to why not just leave Carve as a backup: existing developers got tire of all the bug reports against Carve (crashes, not working in certain cases); combine that with the general difficulty of dealing with external libraries (dependencies, versions, hard to push fixes upstream, rot when new compiler versions don't work, ...) led to the decision to remove Carve now that BMesh boolean does pretty well in the general (non-coplanar problem) case.

Howard Trickey (howardt) claimed T54054: Bmesh boolean modifier fails with co-planar geometry (carve doesn't).

This is not something the current bmesh boolean code was intended to handle (coplanar intersections). So one could say that this behavior is "working as intended" (where "intended" = "undefined" in this case). The user can, of course, move one of the planes very slightly to get it into "defined" territory, but understood that that is tedious for the user especially if there are a lot of things that need to move and no easy single command to find and move all of them at once. So I will take this task assigned to me to see if something can be done, but there is not likely to be a quick fix to this.

Unfortunately, it is not the last known one for bevel. I'm currently working on T53459, which is taking a lot of effort to fix (end is in sight, though).
For this bug, as mentioned earlier, the problem is that I don't understand the theory of subdivision with constraints on boundary normals well enough to make the general case ensure curvature continuity.

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T52602: edit mode bevel issue.

I agree it is weird, though sometimes things like this happen because it is impossible to simultaneously set the bevels for all edges to what they should be mathematically (due to interactions with the bevels at other edges, and the code tries to "compromise" in cases like that). But I need to investigate more to see if that's what is going on here.

Thanks for your suggestion, Jac. And thanks for the clear examples in your rightclickselect post. While it seems strange to me to have a different treatment of seams for odd and even numbers of segments, I can understand your argument. What about other edge attributes (e.g., smoothness; bevel weight; ...). In your opinion, which edge attributes should go exclusively to the middle edge, which should go to all of the edges, and which should go to the outer edges of a beveled edge?

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to T50819: Bevelling an edge loop gives bad geometry.

The fix just committed only fixes this bug if the 'Clamp overlap' option is enabled. The fact that sometimes the existing code stops the edge slides when it hits another vertex was not something that was intended to find and fix all geometry collisions. Even 'Clamp overlap' doesn't do that, though it tries harder.

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) 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).

Howard Trickey (howardt) added a comment to D2150: GSoC 2016: Added PBVH based vertex and weight painting to Blender..

What is the status of this patch? Is it likely to get applied in the 2.8 branch any time soon? Since a GSoC 2017 student that I am mentoring is also doing Vertex Paint improvements, it would be a pity not to be able to build on top of this.

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.

Thanks. Do you have a stack backtrace? At any rate, I will try with VS2017 which I have at home and see what happens with that.

I cannot reproduce a crash. Maybe I don't have all the same build settings. Can someone who gets a crash paste a stack backtrace? I am wondering if the crash is still in bevel, or whether it is somewhere else now.
