Beta Update Version 3.7.13

Updated to 3.7.13 (Win, other versions follow soon)
  • Depth/opacity/radius may now be defined as functions (curve) of pen pressure. It is very useful to customize and thin tune of brushes. 
  • Andrew made the possibility to define alphas via curves too -
  • Proxy (multiresolution) works now via decimate! This helps a lot with thin surfaces.
  • New command in voxel room: Use "VoxTree->RMB->Split with..." to split one source volume with target in two parts. This works in both modes - surface and voxels.
  • Resolved conflict with layers by dragging and windows scrolling - drag bar appeared over each layer.
  • Additionally a lot of smaller bugs fixed...
