General Setting

Allow relative content for HTML files is a new setting that relates to the viewing of any HTML documents, that are created by a Specification, in DriveWorks Live.

This setting determines how any files embedded within a HTML document are served to the user.

Ambient Occlusion

Ambient Occlusion is a camera effect that can be enabled on the Default Camera or any Camera Entity added to a 3D Document.

Ambient Occlusion is a shading and rendering technique used to approximate how exposed each point in a scene is to ambient lighting. It darkens creases, holes, intersections and surfaces that are close to each other. In real life, these areas tend to block or occlude ambient light, therefore they appear darker.

New Function

FsGetURL is a new function that retrieves a URL for the given file to be displayed in a browser.

You can then use this URL to show the document in a WebFrame control or use in a hyperlink.

Save Copy Group Settings

Data Management Tasks - Copy Group and Pack and Go allow a configuration file to be saved with all the settings applied during the wizard process.

This allows the same settings to be instantly run when the tasks are required in future.

Specification Macro Task Nodes

Specification Macro Task Nodes can be resized to uncover the task name and any rules applied to the task properties.

Data Export Documents

SQL Server Data Export and ODBC Data Export Document UI has been updated to better support high resolution monitors.
