tools mbFeatherTools 3.2 Update

0 Comments

Hey folks, version 3.2 of mbFeatherTools is now available. Softimage 2015 is now fully supported. The licensing system has been improved so it only creates the FeatherTool property in scenes where the plugin is used. There is also an “Activate License” button in the toolbar in case you accidentally delete it.

If you are switching machines often, you can now store your key on the network and point Softimage to it with an environment path. You can set the environment variable MBFEATHERTOOLS_LICENSE to the path where you want to store the license file. For more info, please see the documentation.

If you have not yet received the update, please contact me.
