DriveWorks V18 SP0 Information

Internet Explorer Support

Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is no longer supported when running a DriveWorks project in a web browser (through Personal Web Edition or DriveWorks Live).

Microsoft Edge was released in 2015 as the browser to supersede IE. Since then IE has not received major updates, or added support for many modern web standards.

Microsoft recently discouraged the use of Internet Explorer in this blog post.

To allow us to continue to take advantage of modern web standards to deliver improved functionality and the best possible user experience across all of our products, we have decided to end support for IE11.

End of support means bugs that are specific to IE11 cannot be fixed, and new features will be introduced that aren't compatible with this browser.

We recommend switching to one of our supported browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.

Windows 7

Operating Systems running Windows 7 are not supported for DriveWorks 18.

Viewing the Data Table Control in DriveWorks Live

Vertical Grid Lines in the Data Table control are now displayed as expected when viewing in a browser.

DriveWorks 18 (onwards) - Drive3D HDR and brightness/contrast controls require WebGL2 compatible browser

HDR rendering requires a WebGL2 compatible browser.

By extension this also includes the new tonemapping, brightness and contrast properties on the 3D Scene's Environment.

This means it's possible to cause visual differences between browsers based on these properties.

If you plan on using these properties and also to support users using both WebGL and WebGL 2 when using your drive3d document in a browser, consider tweaking these values, or the ambient light intensity, based on the browser they are using by making use of the special variable DWCurrentClientDetails (for more info, visit Info: Special Variables).

Information on support for WebGL 2 browsers can be found at: Can I use WebGL 2.0
