Release Notes

App – 2020.728 (1st Aug 2020)

Features:

  • Included an addon to record video from My View and review it in the gallery.
  • Included an addon to show the Annual Energy Production (AEP) of a windfarm

Bugs Fixed:

  • Show the look direction of a render in the title bar (it used to be direction from vp to centre of project). This fixes the problem with large distributed projects where the vp is in the centre.
  • Set the sequence number in the bottom panel to a sensible value.
  • RepeatingStepper cancels Events when it is removed from view. This fixes an issue where the event continues firing even if the user has left the view.
  • Add a keyframe logger to the settings screen. This allows us to record the keyframe from the motion and location sensors.
  • Declination is negative so always apply it as a -ve (rather than jumping between +ve and -ve each frame)
  • Set the Target location when the Fly Through first loads (so we always get values) and hide the viewpoint name as this doesn’t make sense in Fly Through mode.
  • Show the Streetview banner if the license found on the server (as well as in local cache). Requires the update event from the server to be handled and display the banner.
  • Ensures that the Streetview preview popup shows correctly when the map is tapped on.
  • Minor wording and layout changes for consistency
  • Ensure that the creating large wireline90’s can be done on the iPadPro12 2018 as well as older capable devices.
