general Applink-Wish

Recommended Posts

Hi Applink-Developers, hi Andrew...

I am not sure what the latest installer/applink-description suggest.

But I see that there are are Applinks which allow to initially send Geometry created inside 3DCoat to Program XY and there's

others which don't support this. So I can for instance send Geometry from 3DCoat to Voidworld and I believe also to Blender and other

programs by using the File/Export to - Pulldown...

In other programs (example on my disk: Messiah - but there could be others as well) such isn't posssible.

Here the linking-chain has to start inside Messiah by opening the desired mesh and sending it over to 3DCoat -unless I've overlooked something

crucial. Could this behaviour please get streamlined so that every Applinking-Process can also start inside 3DCoat? Could the Applinks also all

use one common Output-Directory (at least by Default)? Otherwise we start cluttering our Disks with loads of large temporarily files, which in

some cases even sit in the C-Drive...

In general after installing AppLink XY there should appear item in File menu

File->Open In -> XY

This is a way to initiale all starting from 3DC

Thanks for your reply Andrew.

I have several Applinks installed (Voidworld, Messiah, Blender) but I don't see "Open In"

All I have is "Export to" - but (for now) only available for Voidworld and Blender.

Another wish for all Applinks: Please consider "Send to" with a Submenu of all installed Applinks.

It could also include a Link called "Source-App" so that one could Hotkey the Exchange back.

Then one only needed just one Entry for the Applink (One would not need "Open in original App").

I'm lead to believe that 3D-Coat and Solid Iris Thearender are considering developing an app-link. I certainly hope that is true and I think that is such a "no-brainer" good idea that I've just bought 3D-Coat. :)
