There's 2 features I'm currently looking for. The problem might/will be that they're really no use to me unless they end up in the CVS. So that's the mayor requirement... no pay untill it's in there. I know that can be a real headache, but I'm not seeing this as a paid job, but as an incentive to make something happen.
If you have any questions or ideas feel free to post them here.
The 2 features:
I wrote the BrayBaker script a while back.
It works but it'll never be clean or efficient. Have a look at what it does if you don't know what I'm talking about.
Basicly the idea is to make it possible to render the "skin" of a mesh to it's uv layout.
It only needs to work with the blender internal renderer.
It should work with raytracing as well. So the skin needs to be exactly as it would be when in a regular render.
Also it should not be possible for any other objects to appear in the bake (except for reflections/transparencies).
I don't think using the regular camera is an option, you may need to look deeper into the render code.
And the big one, a must for game developers... it must be possible to render the skin of a high poly object to the uv layout of a low poly one.
I have to say, and this one's important!... timmeh is working on the pynodes and it is looking like an improved form of baking shouldn't be hard to implement using that.
Which means... if he gets it to work... the bounty is his. Still I'd rather have a fully integrated internal function than having to use any form of python for this.
The bounty $150.-
I know the bounties are very modest and will never pay for the ammount of time it'll cost.Export to scr
It's a simple one and I heard there is an old patch that does it already, but for some reason it got discarded.
It might be as simple as finding that patch and rewriting it a bit.
All it needs to do is take the current export to .exe and make that into a proper .scr with preview and other requirements for screensavers.
Those that aren't present when you simply rename the .exe to .scr.
I don't even care what the preview is, it can just be a black screen or a blender logo.
The bounty $50.-
But then... this is all I can offer at this time... and I'm happy I can offer something.
