Medium - Export Pipeline guide

Hi all, 

As you all probably know we've expanded a lot of the export options within Medium at our V1.1.1 update. To walk you through all the options, what they mean, and how they all connect we made this little guide for you. 

Enjoy!

Let us know if you have any questions. 

*EDIT: Update to include origin information

@MattHickman I take it will have a new version soon - regarding all the new transform gizmos and all 🙂 still feeling a bit confused

Updated the guide to include sculpt origin info

I have found that the lathe origin is a good way to centre a sculpt to like a home position. Are you considering putting a home origin option in ?

Yeah, for the purpose of exports and previews we may do a little trickery with how the sculpt is oriented relevant to the camera just to make it easier to get it right off the bat.

Awesome look forward to it - I think what would be good is a reset home position - just like the default sphere scene at start up - like I'm ok with tweaking translate and rotate, but have come into issues with pivot origin drift - esspecially when in mirror.

Is there anyway to change the default path Medium uses for saving files? Want to switch it to a network drive so files are by default accessible across the local network.

You should be able to reggedit this: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Oculus\Medium\LibraryDirectory
If you're comfortable doing so.

Used regedit to change the path and it works. The down side being you have to copy all of files from the default path to the new path for it to work. Really just want to point the sculpture directory there and maybe a few of the others not preferences and everything else.

Any way to specify the path for specific sub directories?

Any plans to let the user pick a path on save? Or set other paths?

No way to do this yet, but improving the import/export pipeline is high on our list right now.
