Freestyle integration into Blender

May 31, 2009

Weekly update May 25-31

Filed under: Update — The dev team @ 8:40 PM

This week, we worked on enabling the saving of the Freestyle configuration to file. So far, style parameters are saved correctly, but a bit more work is needed to save module paths. Once this is done, the branch will be updated, merging trunk from the 2.49 release into the branch.

We will then work on choosing Blender scripts (defined via the script editor) as style modules, instead of selecting them from disk. The advantages would be many:

  • style modules could be packaged directly into .blend files.
  • style modules could be configurable at runtime. That would permit the animation of module parameters, would simplify the creation of Freestyle UI scripts (like the ParameterEditor).
  • it would greatly simplify adding style module support in the compositor.

If anybody finds the lack of style module loading from file limiting, please let us know.



  1. I think that the loading of .py files as style modules shouldn’t be necessary anymore, provided that the new version will be able to save and reload modified style modules. As usual, thank you for the continued work. Can’t wait to build the new branch!
