Overview Exporter
« on: July 20, 2012, 01:21:03 PM »
I have started work on an Overview/Radar Exporter. This tool is now packaged in WW. It is, however, still unfinished and does not provide accurate pos_x, pos_y and scale values.

I am aware of these limitations and working to get them solved.

In the meantime, here is a preview of the workflow:

WWMT 1.82 was released today. The Overview Exporter is updated to V0.2.

I have updated the calculations for pos_x, pos_y and scale. I think that pos_y and scale are correct now. pos_x is "close" but needs more attention. The function works best now if you use the Safe Frame.

I will continue to work on this function.

So today I returned to this tool. And the above talk about the calculations being correct are bogus.

Luckily, I figured out how to calculate the proper pos_x and pos_y this evening. And I'm making it a little more convenient to export the overview for CSGO (which uses DDS files rather than compiled VTF files). Unfortunately, MAXScript has not interface to create DDS files directly, but I'm making it so you can save the DDS from the Render Frame Window.

I'll probably release this in an update this weekend.
