I’ve been playing around for a few days with D5, after buying the pro version, and trying to do a commercial project i’ve done in the past. Let’s see about d5 for medium sized residential projects…
A lot of things are great, but some really need improvement fast.
Instead of adding new features, I would concentrate on making this version quicker and easier to work with. Workflow is key!
I have a load of suggestions, but i will start with the materials:
Could be i’m doing something wrong, but if I don’t, I think it’s very strange that i have to choose if a materials has displacement, but no opacity.
Or a materials has opacity and light intensity , but no diplacement etc.
If i want to create my own water, with displacement, its impossible.
Also a light emitting transparent material is impossible.
There should be a material with all options enabled, or with checkboxes to enable certain parameters.
Also it would be great to have brightness/contrast/invert etc. controls for all map types, like height and ao.
Will keep you posted and keep up the good work!
