AMA – Advanced Modifier Array 0.5 beta3

Hi to all,

Advanced array patch is an improvement of the modifier Array.
These changes are intended to give a bit of randomness to the copies.
Such as: location, rotation, scaling and materials, plus as many other small new features.

Tracker :


Info :

Builds :
Win32: Blender-AMA-32.rar
Win64: Blender-AMA-64.rar
Mac OS X: blender-ama-svn42671.dmg

Patch :

This builds includes my new “Advanced Modifier Array”:


1. Local Rotation.
2. Array distributed on a curve.

Advanced Modifier Array v0.5 beta3 new features and fixed bug (from v0.5.2) 14\12\2011:

1. FIX: “Start Cap” and “End Cap” appears in “Curves” without “Curve Cap”.
2. FIX: “Mid Cap” appears in “Curves” without “Curve Cap”.
3. FIX: Fixed a display bug in “Edit Mode” of the “Mid Cap”.
4. FIX: Initialization of variables for the rand offset.
5. UPD: New UI and improvements, based on PDF of Leandro Cavalheiro.
6. UPD: Two ways to use the modifier:
– “REGULAR” : Standard Method of cloning.
– “PATH” : Cloning along curve.
7. UPD: The “Offset Between” is now in the “Fit Type”.
8. ADD: Ability to bind object “Mid Cap” to a different curve from that of the copies.
9. ADD: Ability to add to the curve of the “Mid Cap” also “Start Cap” and “End Cap”,
respectively the first and last Control Points.
10. ADD: “Scale” can have negative values, to create clones smaller than the original.
11. ADD: The “Mid Cap” is subject to noise, but only in the “Sequence”.
12. ADD: “Start Cap – Mid Cap – End Cap” now have the ability to use a random material
belonging to the object cloned.

Advanced Modifier Array v0.5 beta2 new features and fixed bug (from v0.5.1) 3\11\2011:

1. ADD: Ability to add a “Mid Cap” in various sequences and on “Control Points” of a Bezier
and NURBS curve.
2. ADD: Ability to add multiple clones of a “Mid Cap”.

Advanced Modifier Array v0.5 beta1 new features and fixed bug (from v0.4) 278\2011:

1. FIX: When you allocate a new clone, the assigned material is not the first but the next.
2. ADD: Added option “Sequence” in the tab “Advanced Material”.
3. ADD: Possibility of repeating a material many times, in the mode: “Sequence”.
4. ADD: Ability to add a central object “Mid Cap”.

Advanced Modifier Array v0.4 new features and fixed bug (from v0.3) 178\2011:

1. FIX: Failure to deallocate the last clone.
2. FIX: The Dupli Group maintains the “Noise Offset” even if the Advanced Noise
is disabled.
3. FIX: Elimination from the undo of the button “Refresh For. Offsets”. So the undo of
the clones work well.
4. FIX: The functions for the “Offset Noise” now use the functions in “BLI_rand.h”.
5. FIX: “final_offset” was calculated with a clone more.
6. ADD: Each clone can now be associated with a random element of the “Dupli Group”.
7. ADD: The “Dupli Group” respects the “Restrict Mode” of the modifiers.
8. ADD: Updating the “Count” when you change the “Fit Type” except for “Fit Length”.
9. ADD: New UI.
10. ADD: The “Noise Offset” for Loc-Rot-Scale now has no limits.
11. ADD: The “Offset Noise” now has 5 decimal digits.
12. DEL: Elimination of the “noise factor”.

Advanced Modifier Array v0.3 53\2011:

1. ADD: Random variation of the position, with the choice of direction.
2. ADD: Noise Factor: multiplicative offset value.
3. ADD: Lock offset.
4. ADD: Saving and reading the offset locked.
5. ADD: Offset for scaling and rotation. (The rotation is based on the center of
the main subject)
6. ADD: Distributes the elements in a circle on an axis to choose.
7. ADD: Material random to each cloned.
8. ADD: Ability to tie a group array.
9. ADD: Cloning between two points.
Feature inspired by Mode 501:
10. ADD: New UI.
11. ADD: The noise offset is now updated only when pressing “Refresh Ad. Offset”,
inherent to the style of Blender.


•     ALTA :

1.    Dupli Group:
A.    Assign the material of the clone to “Dupli Group” inherent.
B.    Material at random also the “Dupli Group”.
2.    Enter a button to the randomization of the materials. So it does not change the rand offset.
3.    Associating a curve to the array.

•     MEDIA :

1.    Add offset to the rotation on its axis.
2.    Choose the direction of the offset for the X-Y-Z.
3.    To activate the “Dupli Group” even when you press the button “Apply” of the modifier.
4.    Assign a color ramp to the modifier array for color gradient.
5.    Mid Cap:
A.    Allow to merge to the clones (Merge Verts).
6.    OB-CAP: Keep the original material for each Cap.
7.    Create a form to aspirale with clones.
8.    MultiScatter.

See you soon with many new features!

Best Regards,
Fabio Russo (ruesp83)

P.S.: I wish you a merry Christmas!!! 🙂

New Image Layer in development

Hello everyone!!

I started to implement the code in Blender, which allows me to create layers for the images. (Image Layers)
I started from a base created by KWK [1], began this work for Gsoc2010.
I did not find much news! Also, the last commit in his trunck is August 16, 2010.

My current job is to insert the code created by him in the current build of Blender!
See you very soon with new features!

Best regards, ruesp83
