Deselect all with a single pressing of the “a” keycode

Since Blender 2.80 the deselect all function – complete deselection of all objects or geometry – has been switched from a single press of the “a” key to a double “a-a” or a combination of “alt+a” keycodes. To return the deselection function to a single “a” press, we can edit the settings of the selection operators. Or, since Blender 2.81, a special checkbox is provided for this in the keyboard shortcuts settings.

  • Open the “Preferences” window
  • Switch to the “KeyMap” section
  • Turn on the “Select All Toggles” checkbox in the “Preferences” subsection
  • Save the settings by pressing the “Save Preferences” button in the upper right corner of the window.

Now the selection of all objects/geometry and their total deselection will be performed by pressing the single “a” key.

Blender add-on: BIS v. 1.9.1.

BIS (Blender Interplanety Storage) updated to v.1.9.1.

  • All materials in the database have been updated for the new data storage format.
  • The current version fixes the final transition to the new format. Please update the addon to the current version and no longer use the previous ones.
  • The base of materials with the previous format is saved in the archive. If you have any difficulties with your materials, it is always possible to restore the material from the previous backup version. To do that please contact the BIS administration.

Blender add-on: BIS v. 1.9.0.

BIS (Blender Interplanety Storage) updated to v.1.9.0.

  • Updated some parameters for Blender 2.83 nodes
  • The format of data storage in the library has been changed. Now the backward compatibility is fully supported, saved materials, and node groups for any previous versions can be loaded with the add-on version 1.9.0. In the future, it is planned to update all materials and node groups in the repository to version 1.9.0. After that, backward compatibility with older versions will be removed from the add-on. Users can update their materials themselves by downloading the material from the repository and updating it by clicking the “update” button. It is not necessary to do this; in the future, all non-updated materials will be updated to version 1.9.0. automatically.
  • A code refactoring was made, now more attributes are saved for each node. Getting of the attributes is now automatic.
  • The size of the saved data is reduced due to archiving on the fly, which should reduce the amount of traffic when working with the add-on.

How to get the render pixels coordinates in compositing

When fine-tuning the finished render in “Compositing”, sometimes it is necessary to refer to the pixels coordinates of the processed image, for example, to apply effects distributed over the entire width or height of the image.

We can get the distribution factor of coordinates along with the height or width of the rendered image using texture nodes.
