Legend — Release Notes

Triaxes Legend 10.3.1 – August 2020

Fixed bugs

  • Crash on Generating Positioning Frame.

Triaxes Legend 10.3 – August 2020

What’s new:

  • Improved text readability in some controls when using the gray interface scheme.

Fixed bugs

  • Incorrect picture size on the Lenticular tab when starting new projects;
  • Problem saving / opening a large PSDD (more than 2 GB);
  • The loss and change of the layers’ names when recording/reading PSDD;
  • Error – the parallax values of the foreground and background are swapped when applied to the layer’s depth map;
  • When resizing the Navigator panel, controls are not redrawn.

Changes

  • New layers are now added to position 0 in depth.

Triaxes Legend 10.2 – June 2020

Fixed bugs

  • Crashing in the “Layer to image size” function;
  • Crashing when generating frames based on the layers with automatically generated depth map;

 

Triaxes Legend 10.1 – June 2020

What’s new:

  • “Layer to image size” function added to the context menu of the layer;
  • “Auto resize layer to image size” function added to the Settings dialog.
    These functions allow you to make editing of layers and depth maps in external editors more stable and predictable. This is especially important when working with an external Adobe Photoshop editor and depth maps that are larger than the layer size.

Changes

  • Automatic depth map scaling was removed. Previous versions of the program, when connecting to a depth map layer, reduced the depth map size to the layer size. This could lead to distortion of the depth map and difficult-to-detect errors;
  • Support for the depth map larger than the layer image was added. If an image and a depth map are loaded as layers in the project, the depth map can be connected to the layer based on their relative location.

Fixed bugs

  • .mp4 export error, if there were spaces in the path;
  • Legend: error with the lenticular encoding when mirroring was on;
  • Legend: error with the name of the encoded lenticular file.

Triaxes Legend 10 – April 2020

What’s new:

  • New tool – Parallax measurer or Parallaxometer – allows you to accurately measure the parallax and predict 3D effect of the printed 3D image;
  • Extended number of processed frames for all software editions. For 3DMasterKit 10 Pro: max N=512, max Lenticular LPI=600, max Resolution 9600 PPI.
  • New ability to edit as layer’s image, as their depth maps in an external editor;
  • New ability to choose different color schemes of the user interface. The new dark theme of the interface allows you to focus on the image and reduce fatigue;
  • Toolbar icons can be enlarged. Now the software is compatible with high-definition displays;
  • The Pitch Test dialog can be opened without adding images to the project;
  • New image export format for the Looking Glass holographic displays;
  • New example and video tutorial on 2D-to-3D image conversion.
  • Drag’n’drop or double click to open .psdd files.

Enhancements:

  • Encoding has sped up by 25%;
  • Better encoding/saving of large-format images (more than 4 Gb);
  • Improved computational model used to apply depth maps to layers. 3D rendering results have become more predictable. That simplifies 2D-to-3D conversion.

Fixed:

  • A big list of bugs (more than 30) and drawbacks;
  • Reading of jpg files taken with new cameras;
  • Software crashes when opening the Pitch Test dialog.

Triaxes Legend 3.3 – September 2018


Fixed:

  • tuning frame generation.

Triaxes Legend 3.2 – July 2018


What’s new:

  • ability to save series of frames as video in the MP4 format with a specified framerate and number of playback circles (Image export dialog was updated). You can use this feature to create “Wiggle 3D” photos for Facebook, etc.;
  • JPG, TIFF file support in the CMYK color model when importing/exporting frames;
  • the lenticular can be generated to a BigTIFF (.tif) file in the CMYK mode;
  • updated 3DMasterKit 9.2 and Legend 3.2. User Guides.

Fixed:

  • working with a .psdd layered template and transparency (ACMYK) in the CMYK color model;
  • interface bug of the Image export dialog;
  • CMYK generation in the demo mode: program crush or file missing;
  • PSD file opening problem in the saved project;
  • problem with Alignment marks saving (frame width) in the manual mode when changing the frame for the first time and closing the dialog.

Triaxes Legend 3.1.1 – December 2017


What’s new:

  1. Decimal values (3 figures) support for the print resolution (PPI) when the lenticular is generated: edit boxes are extended;
  2. Decimal values support for the print resolution (PPI) when the pitch-test is generated;
  3. Decimal values support for the print resolution (PPI) when the positioning frame is generated;
  4. File naming for exporting is updated.

Fixed:

  1. Absent layers when generating frames out of a multilayer template;
  2. Visual flaws when a depth map for layers is generated (when histogram correction is applied).

Triaxes Legend 3.0.0.2 – July 2017


What’s new:

  1. When a multi-view frame series is generated the automatic mode of frame number calculation allows to get a better 3D effect.
  2. Picture layout: alignment marks with advanced settings, dynamic centering marks, crop marks.
  3. Alignment marks generation modes: 3D, Flip, Custom.
  4. Dynamic marks defining the correct lens matching.
  5. Crop marks.
  6. Pitch-test generation into a PSB file.
  7. Play/Stop frame animation with Space-bar.
  8. Ability to lock the Crop Rect aspect ratio;
  9. Move instrument for the relative shift of the source frames;
  10. Ability to change the measurement system (metric or US customary system).
  11. New online activation system. Now it is even easier to use the software.
  12. Transparent background support for the positioning frame and frame line color switch.
  13. Positioning frame can be saved to a PSB file.

Fixed:

  1. additional check of the valid values (min./max.) for some numeric fields
  2. saving templates into a PSDD file
  3. interface elements in the Pitch test dialog
  4. Russian words in the generated pitch-test.
  5. Interface fixes:
    – Lenticular tab – drop-down list with resolution and lpi values,
    – spin-arrows for numeric fields are added,
    – mouse cursor changes in different modes (move, rotate, scale) for 64-bit versions, etc.
    – Positioning frame dialog – drop-down lists for resolution and lpi.
  6. progress bar support (in Win 7)

Triaxes Legend 2.2 – November 2013


What’s new:

  1. Pitch test dialog displays information on the size of the generated image.
  2. Default file name format is changed.
  3. Allowed LPI value range is extended (0.1 – 300).

Fixed:

  1. Pitch-test dialog, Crop Rect dialog and Positioning Frame dialog bugs.
  2. Scaling instrument (scroll boxes are not reset to the middle of the scroll bar).
  3. File resolution saved “from the screen”.
