FumeFX 6.0 Beta 10
#1
FumeFX 6.0 beta 10 has been released today.

There've been three months since the first FumeFX 6.0 beta release and in this short period of time we've released ten beta updates with plenty of new features and bug fixes - over 200 in total.
In this jubilar update we've updated Voronoi Shatter with new functionality that gives artists greater freedom in creating fracture patterns.
We've developed two new nodes that can handle shape elements and allow elements extraction and merging.
Grid sources can now add pressure to the FumeFX simulation for all source types.

Those are just some of new features while complete list of new/improved features and bug fixes is below.

New or Improved Features
- New Shape Modifiers node group for nodes that change shape like Voronoi Shatter, Extrude, Displace etc.
- New Element Shatter node that will extract elements from particle shape and generate new particles by using various activation modes.
- New Shape Merge node that combines all shapes from one particle group into a new shape.
- Voronoi Shatter node surface point generation added option to work on selected faces only.
- Voronoi Shatter node added Number of Clusters parameter and moved Number of Points parameter to Point Distribution rollout.
- Voronoi Shatter node added points gen seed.
- Voronoi Shatter node for particle group type added ability to use those as center for uniform, normal and concentric.
- Voronoi Shatter node fragments added smoothing option for capped faces.
- Voronoi Shatter node added Particle Group option as Cluster Center for Location Type Surface and Point Cloud.
- Face Shatter and Voronoi Shatter added two pass through pins that will allow users to directly pass values from input to output.
- Face Shatter and Voronoi Shatter nodes added Parent particle output pin.
- Grid Source node can now use 3ds max object as FumeFX sources.
- Grid Source node added ability to add pressure for shape and geom. source.
- FumeFX Geom Source added option to emit only from faces with certain Material ID, like NodeWorks Sources.
- Changes to the Tessellate node. See documentation for details.
- Displace node added option to apply to selected faces only.
- Tessellate node added face center mode in addition to the edge mode.
- NodeWorks mesh display added option to display selected faces.
- Added Pin connection by Click-Drag-Click in addition to Click-Hold&Drag-Release.
- Replaced +/- buttons for input spinner controls with up/down arrows.
- Added Physx Impulse output to PhysX Results node.
- Added All Events option to the PhysX Results node
- Arnold points will now use one material from first point-particle for point rendering of all other point-particles.


Bug Fixes
- Error with Voronoi Shatter on thin objects like glass.
- Particle Shape adjust pivot does not work unless center pivot is enabled (for non-animated meshed only).
- Global Get/Set Attribute node crash.
- Black screen area appeared when resizing window.
- Displace node didn't pass proper UV coords to the map evaluation.
- Voronoi Shatter fragments - some vertices were not welded properly.
- FumeFX opens closed NodeWorks when FumeFX sim was started.
- Undo/redo system bug for strings.
- Undo system didn't work on datatype for Global Attr Set node.
- Voronoi Shatter Point Cloud/Particle had wrong particle position and point cloud was at wrong location.
- Tab key can skip control when calculation is in progress.
- PhysX static/kinematic partices didn't show up in PhysX Results node.
- Physx Joints can crash.
-  Clicking on node up/down arrows or enable/disable button to automatically select that node and display attributes.
- If control loses focus right after undo, its value will be set as undo operation never occurred.
- Node is automatically opened when user starts dragging link from pins.
- Errors when editing Comment node while editor is set to cache mode.
