Overlord - Change log

 

 

[1.12] - 2018-03-20

Fixed

  • Accidentally left some debugging code in v1.11 release
  • Error on line 1745
  • Error on line 1331
  • Error on line 1822

[1.11] - 2018-03-20

Changed

  • Zeroing out the anchor point on paths and parametrics when Center Anchor Point is enabled
  • Removed redundant fill opacity and replaced it with group opacity to reduce stroke transparency as well

Fixed

  • Error on line 1247 - clipping masks on compound shapes
  • Error on line 1247 - clipping masks on groups. Single clipping groups on a layer become layer masks to simplify layers.
  • Text along a path isn’t supported but now the won’t make transfers fail
  • Better detection of group blending modes
  • Better detection nested group opacity

[1.10] - 2018-02-27

Added

  • Support for Ai gradient fills and strokes (yayayayaya)
  • Update fill and stroke colors from Ai
  • Support for clipping masks
  • Factored in Ae layer Position/Anchor Point transforms when transferring to Ai

Changed

  • Hidden Ai objects within a group will not be transferred to Ae

Fixed

  • Text alignment
  • Text leading (supported in Ae CC2017.2)
  • Empty text layers broke the whole transfer
  • Text not transferring from Ai CC2014
  • Further corrected the addition of type name line breaks
  • Smarter layer adding when Ae layers selected
  • Moved parametric shape positioning into the parametric group itself to simplify keyframing and make converting to bezier much cleaner

Thanks: This update would not have been possible without the generous testing time of: Kyle Martinez, Jeff Salvado, Drew Jackson, Nicolas Doretti and Wojciech Piekarczyk.

[1.03] - 2017-11-16

Added

  • Support for Ai Spot Color tints
  • Preference to use New Artboard button to create a new Ae comp from an artboard’s dimensions

Changed

  • Created two install versions: Updatable and Stable. Updatable will allow the panel to be updated by opening Settings and downloading directly without needing to download, install or restart Ae/Ai. For users experiencing issues with the panel not displaying buttons immediately, the Stable version provides a less dynamic system of loading the required files. With Stable, Overlord updates will need to be downloaded manually from gumroad.com/library.
  • Optimized Settings panel

Fixed

  • Accidentally added line breaks to text layer naming which broke expressions that used a layer name
  • Unnamed shapes were naming their shape groups “null"

[1.02] - 2017-10-24

Added

  • Preference in settings to disable app switching when pushing shapes to Ae. Some Windows users report Ae resizing when switching which is terribly annoying.

Fixed

  • Layer blending modes (Color Burn, Color Dodge, Soft Light, Hard Light, Saturation, Color) failed to transfer
  • Compound paths failed when explode modifier enabled
  • Empty layer name when Ai=Ae when sending a single, unnamed layer. Now it defaults to an incremented layer name.
  • Panel failed to resize on some systems (requires zxp install)
  • Core CEP now overwrites existing bundle files
  • Removed error when transferring Ai pattern fill/stroke

[1.01] - 2017-10-18

Fixed

A glitch with the licensing unlock

[1.0] - 2017-10-18

Public release

[0.27] - 2017-10-11

  • Layer blending modes
  • Error messaging system in panel removes the need for unnecessary popups
  • ngAnimate has been added to the the core extension. Error messaging will appear as sharp cuts until the new zxp has been installed.
  • Licensing system

Fixed

  • Removed error when pushing Ai art with no elements selected
  • New Ray palette can now be the first Ae comp created
  • Text justification was not factored in and become misaligned when transfered
  • Removed an error when trying to update a path with a text object
  • Catch for updating a path and having a keyframe selected

Changed

  • Ungroup exploded layer groups within a shape layer to make further ESL exploding more natural
  • If no Ai elements selected do not switch apps on Push. Switching indicates a completed Overlord action.
  • If no Ai swatches selected do not switch apps on Push Swatches. Switching indicates a completed Overlord action.
  • If no Ai guides present do not switch apps on Push Guides. Switching indicates a completed Overlord action.
  • Reversed the order that shapes pulled into Ai are created to match the top-down layer stacking order of Ae.

[0.26] - 2017-10-10

Fixed

  • Download animation didn't turn off after downloading to indicate completion

Changed

  • Removed the default layer name in prefs in favor of pulling from the Ai layer name if shapes or groups are not named

[0.25] - 2017-10-09

Fixed

  • I broke the Settings window while debugging like a moron

[0.24] - 2017-10-09

Fixed

  • Preference switches more responsive click area
  • Preference switches lit background color when enabled for cleaner visibility as a toggle switch

[0.23] - 2017-09-30

Added

  • Detect Parametric Shapes is now on the main panel because it didn't make sense to be hidden in settings.
  • Open the user folder with alt click on Update

Fixed

  • Zack Lovatt (the genius) found a crazy error that would break everything if you had never installed a Battle Axe tool before.

Changed

  • Removed Update Shape and Update Color buttons in favor of automatically updating a shape or color depending on whether or not you have an appropriate property selected.
  • Visual tweaks to the preference panel

[0.22] - 2017-09-25

Fixed

  • Creating a new doc from an AE comp created a 1920x1080 instead of pulling the comp data
  • Accidentally removed the interface brightness adjustments

[0.21] - 2017-09-22

Added

  • Support for CC2018 prerelease

  • Moved Center art to comp pref to panel
  • Main icons

Fixed

  • New Ray Palette preference took precedence over being inside of an existence Ray palette comp
  • Increment the naming of new Ray comps
