v0.5.4910 / 28 Aug 2023

โœจ Improvements

  • ๐Ÿช‘ Better UX while using the Seat element in the editor - a model on a seat is now displayed while placing the element.

  • ๐Ÿ”Š Added a โ€œmatches durationโ€ event for Audio TTS element.

  • ๐ŸŽญ Animations are now applied to compatible Characters selected even from outside of Ready Player Me.

  • ๐Ÿ“š Updated UI used to create and add files to a Character element's Brain.

  • ๐Ÿ†˜ Better help options in the top bar of the Portal. More visible help icons on the Editor top bar.

  • ๐Ÿ“ You can now select Character files from the File Manager for custom avatars.

  • ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐ŸŽจ Added a configure avatar link in the deployment page (takes you to avatar preferences), and a few UI improvements.

  • ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ Better icons and thumbnails for Screenshare, Zone, Seat, and Embed3d in the โ€œAdd Elementโ€ page.

In The Viewer:

  • ๐Ÿ“ Removed cursor instruction for third-person view (as they aren't needed there). Also, we now show instructions when scene changes from 360 to 3D.

  • ๐ŸŒ The optimization that happens to a project while viewing a link - which causes dormant scenes to be removed from it, is no longer applied while previewing the project. This is because the editor might be working on a project that is currently inaccessible but might later link it into the project.

  • ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Translation updates: Capture Input element's copy for Japanese.

๐Ÿ› Bug Fixes

  • ๐Ÿ”„ When a browser tab with a GMetri view link was duplicated, the session id used to get duplicated - and viewer updates used to get overwritten. This is now fixed.

  • โž• Deleting an element and then trying to add a new element without selecting anything from the Structure Panel used to fail. This is now fixed.

  • ๐Ÿ“ Entering text in input boxes should no longer moves the camera. This issue used to sometimes bring the camera down to ground level (because of the โ€œeโ€ reduce camera height shortcut). Fixed!

  • ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ The input box for camera height no longer loses focus while modifying it.

  • ๐Ÿ“Š Fixed viewer sessions table UI in analytics. It wasnโ€™t being rendered correctly in case there a large number of columns as a result of a large number of variables.

  • ๐Ÿ“ˆ In certain cases, the analytics page used to show errors and the page refused to render. This is now fixed.

In The Viewer:

  • ๐ŸŽฎ Controller movement fixes for VR mode on headset devices.๐ŸŽ‰

  • ๐Ÿ“ท Fixed camera height and name bubble position while sitting.

  • ๐Ÿ” Reset rotation property wasnโ€™t being applied for Third person mode. This is now fixed.
