This new version (2.4c for messiah:studio and 5.4c
for messiah:animate) is a maintenance update that also contains
several new features and modifications. The list below will
fill you in on what's new.
Features & Modifications
Autosave: Multiple auto save files
are possible now (up to 100, default is 10.)
Incremental Scene Saving:
Save fxs or mpj files incrementally. The new scene will
automatically be incremented by one, so if the original was
myscene0001.fxs the new one will be myscene0002.fxs.
Object Sequence Loading Added To
Dmorph: The surfaces will remain the same as those of
the base object you applied the dmorph to. This is handy if you have an object, which has
been textured in messiah. When the object is replaced, the
texturing will remain intact.
Particles: Now able
to choose NULLS in particle slave popup.
Particle Emitter: Now has
visual guides for type (cone, box, plane).
Spot Light Cone can be
seen when looking through the spot light as a view object.
Motion Graph now zooms
with the current frame marker as the center, instead of the left
edge of the graph.
Mouse Wheel zooms graph
when cursor is over graph. Graph view jumps to Current Frame
Sliders: min max
can be set for the viewport sliders.

The view no longer changes focus to the first view,
when saving, or auto save is activated, and you're in a quad or

rotation assignment problem.
