ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T55038: Consolidate tool-related settings in top bar.
Referring to @Julian Eisel (Severin) post, how can we possibly put all snapping options in one global list?

I think that we can as long as it is considered as options like edit mesh options ou sculpt options.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T55038: Consolidate tool-related settings in top bar.

I think that a snapping popover could handle settings for 3DView, UV editor, node editor and animation editors. It should not be a lot longer than overlays popover.
A magnet button could be kept in each editor's header to enabling/disabling snapping in each editor.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T54908: Workbench UX design.

@Erick Tukuniata (erickblender) had a very good point about zero area faces.
It is quite common to forget to merge snapped vertices and then extrude a face or to cancel just extrusion movement without cancelling the extrusion.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) triaged T54509: Material Update in viewport on Imac as Incomplete priority.

Materials Preview is a small render. It is not surprising that handles user changes better than viewport.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T54440: Cannot sculpt stroke along surface.

This is expected behaviour. "Surface Stroke Placement" is just operating while stroke drawing.
Once stroke is drawn, it is considered as a 3D element in 3DSpace. The stroke is not constrained to surface as you can constrained a mesh on another one with a shrinkwrap modifier.
You can move it or modify it in Edit mode. That is not specific to Sculpt mode.

@William Reynish (billreynish) , some points of your proposal are ignoring some aspects of toolsettings or manipulators.
I mostly agree with proposal but I may disagree with some examples and remarks mentionned to justify what is in proposal.
And some parts of proposal are outdated, not taking into account what has been done in 2.8 branches (Grease Pencil Object,EEVEE,workspace/collections...).
I had too many remarks to formulate. So, here, a separate file that groups them.

Please :
Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date (and use official GPU drivers, not those provided by windows or tablet/laptop maker).
Launch Blender from the command line with -d option and attach as text file here any error printed out in the console (do not paste it directly in comment).
Try to run Blender through Software OpenGL, this will be much slower however, if everything works then it means that the bug is spefic for your GPU/Driver and you should report the bug to your GPU vendor instead.

I think that users are simply working in master without this.
Freestyle Linesets are defined per renderlayer. When no lineset is created or enabled in a renderlayer, no freestyle stroke rendering is done for this renderlayer.
For users, deactivate all linesets is equal to deactivate freestyle pass.

Jan 31 2018, 10:53 PM
ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to D3033: Cycles: add Principled Volume shader..
  • "flame" does not have an obvious interpretation, remapping it from 0..1 to something like 1500..3000K gives a usable temperature but the exact meaning is unclear.

Smoke simulation produces an "heat" attribute. "flame" is here to distinguish flames from smoke. It is a kind of mask to separate two objects that don't share same properties (shapes, emission, color).

This is no more an issue with boolean modifier but it turns into a feature request about array modifier performances.
We could resume it as "At a count above 1000 duplicates, array modifier becomes slow."
Of course, better performances of viewport and modifiers are a target for 2.8 release.
But it is not necessary to keep a reminder about a threshold value to expect developers to try to repel it.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) closed T53613: Placement and Rotation of Instanced Geometry Lost on Quit or Crash as Invalid.

In provided .blend file, almost every object have animation keyframes.
It means that their position is locked by the keyframe.
It looks like you duplicated the tooth named Circle.
But by doing that, you are also duplicating its animation keyframes that are locking the duplicate to same position.

I cannot reproduce on ubuntu 16.04 with an AZERTY keyboard. No such problem with linux.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a project to T53590: Bend tool "bend angle" gets reset in some situations meaning the tool is not zeroed properly: Mesh Modeling.

I think it is a known limitation. It may be considered as a visual disturbance. It looks related to position of selection in the window and amount of movements.
But user should focus on the mesh and not really take attention to the position of mouse pointer.

This is a general support issue and not a software error we can investigate.

Thanks for the report but it would be helpful only when you add a blend-file to the report that demonstrates the issue at hand.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) triaged T53586: Collapse of surface Curves when CTRL+J as Confirmed priority.

In attached .blend, do Ctrl J to join Surfaces curves to observe the problem.
Surfaces Curves are considered as 2D splines. It looks like they are considered as 3D splines only if they are created in edit mode.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T53472: Cycles doesn't render smoke properly with adjusted clipping distances.

There is no plan that goes into details for refactoring of smokes or a developer currently working on it for first 2.8. A refactoring of modifiers is expected for the end of 2.8 series but to convert modifiers's stack into modifiers nodes. Addition of an OpenVDB primitive can be done next year or more years later.

I think it is a known limitation that Camera Clipping is not working with smokes at rendering.

ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) changed the status of T53436: Vertex Group Select/Deselect fails after mesh was extruded and vertex group was again assigned from Invalid to Archived.

You are right if we are focusing only on the belonging to the vertex group.
But here, user is also assigning a weight value to vertices at same time.
