Windows installation packages (.msi) 2 months ago

From Jan Walter to ~wahn/rs-pbrt-announce

I update the rs-pbrt *Download* site, which does include a .msi (Windows
installation package) for blend_info as well now:

https://www.rs-pbrt.org/download

You can find both files as well here:

rs-pbrt v0.9.6 release 2 months ago

From Jan Walter to ~wahn/rs-pbrt-announce

I released two new versions of my crates last week.

https://crates.io/users/wahn

The renderer is currently not changing that much anymore. The Windows
.msi installer was changed to report the dual licensing correctly (MIT &
Apache 2.0), and to contain two executables, one to render .pbrt (v3)
files, and one to parse and render Blender's binary .blend files (in
theory independent of the Blender version using it's DNA info).

Using the crate blend_info not as an executable to inspect a .blend
file, but as a crate (like the example mentioned above) is now
documented a little more:

blend_info v0.2.7 2 months ago

From Jan Walter to ~wahn/rs-blender-announce

I just released blend_info v0.2.7.

I started to document the crate a little bit more by adding two
sections:

1. Usage as a crate (used in your own code): In the examples folder I
   added example Rust code how to use read_dna(...).

2. Examples (used as a standalone executable to query .blend files):
   That part of the documentation already existed.

https://docs.rs/blend_info/0.2.7/blend_info

Otherwise there were no changes to the library part.

blend_info v0.2.4 3 months ago

From Jan Walter to ~wahn/rs-blender-announce

Yesterday I released blend_info v0.2.4.

It can help you with following pointers now.

```
blend_info 0.2.4
Print some information about a Blender scene file

USAGE:
    blend_info [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] <path>

FLAGS:
        --dna         Print information about DNA of Blender
    -h, --help        Prints help information

blend_info v0.1.1 3 months ago

From Jdb Walter to ~wahn/rs-blender-announce

I just released a first version of
[blend_info](https://crates.io/crates/blend_info) on crates.io. At some
point I was working on a similar project on
[codeberg](https://codeberg.org/wahn/rs_blender/src/branch/master/blend_info)
and I kind of hacked that into [rs-pbrt](https://www.rs-pbrt.org/) to be
able to use **some** binary Blender `.blend` files directly as input for
my physically based renderer. The executable for that is called
`parse_blend_file` file and details (or a video about it) can be found
[here](https://www.janwalter.org/jekyll/rendering/cycles/rs-pbrt/2021/10/25/conference-room-cycles.html). Anyway,
the new crate should help parsing any Blender file (independent of the
version) and extract information you like to use, kind of cherry picking
stuff. I will use the library in a future version of `parse_blend_file`
(as a prove of concept) but want to involve other people early, because
they can help me defining a re-usable library, which can be used for
