Golaem (2016/05/18)

Important Notice

Bone expressions of the SetBone behavior have been unified between Golaem Crowd 5.1 and 5.1.1
Use MEL function golaemCrowd51To511() to update your scene from Golaem Crowd 5.1 to 5.1.1

New Features

  • New Apex Cloth Behavior (Windows only) - Beta


  • nCloth Behavior now supports Input Mesh Attract
  • Trajectory Edit Layer now supports Maya deformers
  • Trajectory Edit Layer now supports curve smoothing
  • Trajectory Edit Layer now supports two modes: curve length preservation or frame based position
  • Trajectory Edit Layer can also be combined other transform layers
  • Perceived Obstacles and Perceived Entities attributes in the Navigation Behavior
  • Smooth Position Filters in the SetBone Behavior
  • Effector bones can now be scaled within the SetBone Behavior
  • Flock perching is now a Behavior
  • Particle systems are now linked to their Population Tool Locator
  • Improved "Save" Behaviors (it is now possible to specify what objects will be saved along with the Behaviors)
  • Improved display of Vector Field nodes
  • Improved Outer Flow of Vector Field nodes
