Setting to prevent the laptop from overheating


Many users are using Unity with their laptops.
AnyPortrait basically takes full advantage of Unity's performance,
so we have received feedback from users that their laptop is getting hot and inconvenient to use.
On some devices, the degree of overheating is so severe that it can be difficult for users to work.
If you turn on the option added in v1.1.6, you can selectively limit the performance of the editor and prevent your laptop from overheating.

Select the Editor tab in the Settings dialog and turn on the "Optimize the editor's performance for laptops" option.

When the optimization option is turned on, the performance of the editor will be significantly reduced unless it is updated in real time.
In situations where performance is limited, a green battery icon appears in the upper left corner of the workspace.
This option has the following characteristics:
- In all situations where an animation is played, the editor will behave the same as before.
- If you select a root unit, performance will be limited except when playing an animation or capturing a screen.
- When image, mesh, or control parameters are selected, performance is limited in all situations except editing Pivot.
- If you select a mesh group, performance is limited except when you select the Physics modifier or use the Blur tool.
- If you are editing an animation, performance is limited except when you are playing an animation or using the Blur tool.
- Physical effects and IK may behave somewhat unnaturally when performance is limited.

Bone and Rigging settings in the workspace


1. Appearance of Bones : These are options regarding the appearance of the bone.
- Display Method : Select "Arrowhead" or "Needle" to change the appearance of bones.
- Size : The size of the bone. As the value increases, the width increases.
- Scaled by Zoom : Determines whether the size of bones changes depending on the zoom of the workspace.
- New Bone's Color : When adding a bone, you can choose whether to have a color similar to that of the parent bone or have a completely different color.
- Preview of New Bones : When creating a bone, changes the preview of the bone that will be created with the mouse cursor position. (v1.4.2)

2. Rigging and Circular Vertices : These are options for the circular rigging weight vertices of the Rigging Modifier.
- Size of vertices : The size of the basic circular vertices.
- Size of selected vertices : The size of selected circular vertices.
- Scale vertices by Zoom : Determines whether the size of the circular vertices changes depending on the zoom of the workspace.
- Selected weight area : You can affect the area for the rigging weight of the selected bone. Selecting "Enlarged" will enlarge the size of the target area. Selecting "Flashing" make the target area flash.
- Gradient color of Weight : When displaying as the gradient color by weight value, not the color of bones, you can determine the color of the gradient. If you select "Default", the color combination used in the previous version will be displayed. If you select "Vivid" added in v1.2.3, a gradation of bright and easy to distinguish color combinations will appear.

The above images are the appearance of the bone output in the form of a Needle and Arrowhead.

The above images show the effect added to the weighted area of the selected bone.

Gradient color for rigging weights. Default option is applied on the left and Vivid option is applied on the right.

Among the preview appearances when creating bones, in the Line method, "Thick line" shows the position where the bone will be created, and in the Ghost method, "Translucent bone" appears instead.

Show icons in Hierarchy in Unity


A new option has been added to easily distinguish characters created with AnyPortrait in the Unity editor.
If you set the Hierarchy Icon option in the Editor tab, an icon is added to the Hierarchy tab of the Unity Editor.
- Hide Icons : Icons do not appear in the editor.
- Show Icons (Left) : Icons appear to the left of the object's name.
- Show Icons (Right) : Icons appear to the right of the object's name.

Setting the options makes it easy to find AnyPortrait characters in the Unity Editor's Hierarchy.

Resize the Control Parameter UI


When you try to edit using the control parameter UI located on the left side of the AnyPortrait editor, you may feel that the UI of the Vector type Control Parameter is small.
The new option for this case has been added in v1.4.0.

(1) The value of the Size of Control Parameter UI option is set to Default.
(2) As shown above, the Vector type Control Parameter UI is displayed rather narrow.
The UI above is convenient to view multiple Control Parameters at once, but is quite inconvenient to manipulate.

(1) Let's change the Size of Control Parameter UI option to Large.
(2) You can see that the height of the Vector type Control Parameter UI has grown considerably.
Now the UI will be convenient to use.

Size of vertices and pins


(1) By changing the Size option in Appearance of Vertices
(2) You can change the size of vertices or pins shown in the workspace.
This feature can solve the problem of vertices or pins looking too small at resolutions higher than AnyPortrait's native resolution of FHD (1080p).
Not only does the click range increase as the size increases, but if you're working on a high-resolution screen, the click range automatically expands a little further, regardless of the option.

Export editor settings to/import from file


You may want to export the editor's settings to a file to copy to other development environments.
The export to file feature also includes hotkey settings.
There are Export and Import buttons at the bottom of the Editor tab.
- Export: Exports the current editor settings to a file.
- Import: Imports editor settings from a file.
