Toon Boom Harmony 15.0.1 Release Notes

IMPORTANT: An important fix was made to the licensing mechanic of Harmony in Harmony 15.0.1. If your studio uses a license server, you must upgrade Harmony 15.0 to Harmony 15.0.1 on the license server before upgrading your workstations.

Here is the list of changes in Harmony Premium 15.0.1, build 13289:

Features

Feature Description
Interpolation Grid for Master Controller

The Interpolation Grid script allows you to create a 2D point Master Controller that makes a character rig take one of many poses set in a 2D grid without having to do any scripting—see About the Pose Interpolation Grid Script.

Multi-Layer Write Node

The Multi-Layer Write Node allows you to export multi-layered Photoshop Document (.psd) and OpenEXR (.exr) images—see Multi-Layer Write Node.

Refresh Script File List

Added a Refresh button and menu item in the Script Editor view, to refresh the list of script files.

Enhancements

Enhancement
It is no longer necessary to uninstall the previous version of Harmony before installing the latest version on Windows. If an earlier version of Harmony with the same major and minor version numbers is installed on the machine, the installation wizard will automatically uninstall it before installing the latest version.
Renamed the "Project" scope in the Script Editor view to "Scene", since it is used to create scripts in the scene directory.
Improved drawing speed with large brushes on bitmap layers.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue where packages exported for another database from macOS or GNU/Linux-based WebCC servers would not contain the scene data.

  • Fixed issue where extra files linked to a Master Controller node would not be copied over to the scene when using the Save As command.

  • Fixed issue preventing from creating script within the project folder in Harmony Server.

  • Fixed issue where pencil texture palettes did not preserve their palette type when copying them into a template.

  • Fixed issue where opening two scenes one after the other in the same session, both with a palette that had the same name, but different colours and textures, would load the wrong palette in the second scene.

  • Fixed occasional crash when using the Eraser tool on a bitmap layer.

  • Fixed issue where Transformation Limit node would increase rotation instead of decreasing it if parent transformations included a flip.

  • Fixed issue where constraint node would invert transformations on the z-axis applied to nodes that are flipped.
