[Q][FR] Integration of Thea Browser and Skatter

Postby JQL » Fri Dec 19, 2014 2:17 pm

Jiminy and Tomasz,

Will we be able to pick our proxies from Thea browser directly instead of importing them first into the model?

If not, could it happen?

Thanks,

João

That's a good idea.
We'll see about that when my library starts to take shape.

Do you want help on creating content to your library?

Well, that would be quite nice :D Thanks a lot for the proposition.
Although, first I need to create the library itself to see how the content need to be, and in which form.

Is it possible that this library would be also available on Sketchup Component's Favorite libraries, then the users could use drag and drop funtionallity to populate it. If Using Thea Browser, there would be no need for that as I actually use it instead of Sketchup manager most of the time (Only difficulty is saving components inside it... Maybe Tomasz could find some way of saving model components into the current open folder on Browser, the way he does for Proxies...)

Keep in mind that the way I see Skatter's library is some kind of a browser with predefined presets for grass and stuff like that.
Like you select a type of grass, and it already has all the best parameters (that you can tweak if you want), and you just need to select surfaces and areas.
It's not intended to be a geometry library, but more a preset library (accompanied with geometry)
The "two clicks grass field" ;)

That, I don't think is possible. I'm not sure, though, as I never use it. I'll check.

As for the Thea browser, I could probably add my library folder automatically in the Thea Browser's "Custom folders". It's just a registry entry to add (I already found where ;) )

So the integration of a custom (or official) preset library is in the oven...
I was curious because it's weirdly absent from my beta 0.3...
Sorry I haven't read the Todo/wishlist yet :puke:
