Any bugs should be reported to the tracker. Also, I will posting a Windows optimized build for the alpha1 real soon, so check back. All my builds now go to

It gives me an error:

Code: Select all

blender.exe - Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because MSVCR71.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
:? What could it be?

simply install MSVCR71.dll into blender.exe folder or system folder.

No, this is a clean CVS build. If it's not in the CVS, it isn't in this build. :wink:

how much from the SOC will be included?
for example the good boolean code is not in the cvs yet.

we had a blast again today with the new driven key blend file.
we made a speed animation contest. lots of fun!

I think Ton is working on all of that right now. They are going to integrate that as well as the new interface that Matt Ebb designed. This build is really pre-preliminary.

why isn't the [optimal draw] for subdivs working? has this been forgotten when moving over to the modifier system?


ah! it's this small [apply modifier to editing cage during modelling] circle button now. but what does the [optimal draw] button do then?


nevermind... figured this out too. :)

Wait a minute, you mean the interface from Tuhopuu is coming to blender-bf??

If that's so: Woah! You've just made my day! :) That would be excellent news!
