tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T68500: Two important features.

Sounds good, but this is not the right place to put feature requests. I'd recommend expanding it with more details, concept pictures, maybe references to other successful implementations, etc. and posting it to RightClickSelect so regular Blender users can discuss the merits of your proposal and vote on it.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T68498: Outliner: Modes & activating cameras or scenes.

I think @Andrzej Ambroz (jendrzych) is suggesting to get rid of the inline datablock icons that appears when the item is folded (orange box in image). You can still see the object hierarchy as normal when expanded, so you can still examine which datablock belongs to which object - but it is a little redundant to tell the user that "this light has a light", "this object has a mesh", "this camera has a camera", etc. which is the only thing that the inline icons do.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T68415: Blender 2.8 wont open.

Your card (Intel HD Graphics 4000) is an Ivy Bridge architecture GPU; this predates Haswell and is therefore, as per the requirements page, not supported.

I believe your graphics card is not supported. As per the requirements page, blender 2.8 supports "GeForce 200 and newer". Your card falls in the GeForce 9 series, older than the 200 series.

Looks like you need go to Preferences -> Themes tab -> User Interface panel -> Menu Back subpanel -> Inner -> increase Alpha. If not that, then something in that general area.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T68265: Incorrect 3D Cursor Movement with Axis Constraint.

This is expected behaviour. Moving an object and constraining along an axis works in the same way. If you want to move only on X axis, then it makes sense to cancel any Y movement. If you want to constrain the cursor to the XY plane (ie. horizontal/ground plane, without Z/vertical movement), press Shift+Z.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T68190: Link duplicated & shift parented object displays wrong transform.

I think this is correct behaviour. I'm guessing that internally blender does this: first unparent the object from the old parent, then parent it to the new parent. That is the equivalent of this:

That's a large file! Could you try removing extraneous things from it so that it's just the bare minimum necessary to replicate the problem? (eg. ideally your file would just be the eyes and associated material/texture.)

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T65708: Hair collision problem.

You should provide a description of the problem when you submit a bug. Nevertheless I'm guessing the issue is that the hair doesn't collide/interact properly with the cylinder. This is a known problem and the hair system (particularly collisions) is due an overhaul at some point. For now, if you search around the blender community you should find others who've had similar issues and shared their workarounds.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T65654: Edge extrusion error MacOs.

Blender doesn't know how to differentiate between extruding perpendicular to the surface and extruding in the plane of the surface. If it did, and automatically toggled the extra fill face, it would potentially break workflow for those who extrude then transform in two seperate steps. Blender can't foresee your intent, so you have to let it know by choosing a particular extrusion mode.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T65654: Edge extrusion error MacOs.

This is because selecting all edges around a face also selects that face, so the face is also extruded.
You can get the behaviour you want by hitting Alt+E (or go to 3d view header -> Mesh menu -> Extrude submenu) and choosing Extrude Edges.

Can reproduce on latest master. Wiggling one end of the default bezier curve, with a subsurf modifier (view subdivs=1) it will leak about 4mb a second. Add some bevel geometry, some extrusions and up the view subsurf level, and it can start haemorrhaging 100's mb a second.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T65623: Volumetric Material Goes Black in Orthographic View.

Can't reproduce in latest master with object volumetrics.
Does go darker with world volumetrics with ortho camera, which in a way is to be expected: an ortho camera is idealised as being infinitely far away, so an infinitude of even the thinnest atmosphere would obscure everything. The weird thing is that, for me, it doesn't go full black at low densities. Go to Properties->Render tab->Volumetric panel->increase End distance.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T60379: Cycles preview lockup / memory allocation loop while changing adaptive displacement parameters..

It looks to me as though the memory allocation is not entirely runaway, rather blender is just going all the way up to max subdivisions (Properties -> Render tab -> Subdivision panel ->Max Subdivisions). At the default of 12 subdivisions for a simple cube, the required amount of memory is about 16gb (probably, I always pull the plug on it before it gets there though).
