апдейт до DAZ Bryce 18.104.22.168
Установился вместо предыдущей версии, серийный номер не потребовал... наконец "профиксили" работу Брайса на большом экране, где пропадала часть интерфейса. Исправлений много и несколько новинок (приведу весь список на английском):
Displacement Mapping-Bug fixes
0037171: Spatial Sampling for displacement doesn't work
0036825: Setting Displacement has no effect
0036512: Displacement mapping does not respond to transformation tools
0036511: Displacement mapping does is not responding to texture mapping modes.
Changes to the DAZ Studio Bridge to take less memory
Fixed since Bryce 7.0 was released:
Bryce : Implemented : Bryce Bridge: Add progress bar to Bryce indicating status of data transfer;
Bryce : Implemented : Anisotropy for specularity channel
Anisotropy is controlled by strength and direction, direction is calculated from RGB color as a vector (R-0.5, G-0.5, B-0.5), where RGB values are within [0..1] range, one can use textures to fine control anisotropy.
Anisotropic influence can be further extended to blurred reflection and diffuse channel.
Fixed #0039195 : 22.214.171.124 doesn't load objects and alters volume materials.
Fixed #0039197 : Crash when selecting create terrain icon
Fixed #0039190 : Clicking on tree icon crashes Bryce
Fixed #0037706 : Loading object from library fails
Fixed #0039191 : Selecting trees from object library gives errors message

Implemented #0037267 :tone mapping operator is added and used for exported images ( Mac side )
Fixed #0038924 : Specular Map Exponent doesn't accept numerical input;
Fixed #0038128 : Deleted instances reincarnated after the master is removed.
Implemented : Anisotropic specularity driven by texture gray value and calculated in tangent space.
Implemented : Anisotropic reflections driven by texture gray value and calculated in tangent space.
Fixed : Anisotropic specularity cutoff in shadows.
Implemented : Curvature shader, Curvature is used from DTE similar to Altitude and Slope and other shaders, but unlike them it also has to enabled in the material settings in the menu where bump mapping methods are switched. this is done because curvature calculation is time consuming.
Implemented #0037267 : Check button is now can be used to turn on/off using tone mapping for export and preview image
Implemented : Curvature for color modes
Fixed #0038875 : HDRI Transparency Control Greyed-out. Now sky uses HDRI transparency slider to blend HDRI and sky, scenes that used blend will have to adjust transparency slider and possibly base sky color.

Fixed : Volume materials from 7.0.x.x are loaded incorrectly

Fixed #0039473 : progress bar displays the tone mapping process when the check button is on and while exporting tone mapped image
Fixed #0039466 : equal HDR images share one tone mapped data buffer among them now. Tone mapping for HDRI happens only once - when the check button is pressed. Tone mapping for resized small HDRI preview happens every time preview is updated
Fixed #0038923 : Displacement Not Working After Use of Specularity;
Fixed #0037277 : HDRI include / exclude feature forgets setting

Исправили мост между Даз Студио и Брайсом. Правда теперь Брайс требует для работы версию Даз студио не меньше 184.108.40.206 (на сайте доступна версия 220.127.116.11). Но работает нормально.
