We're very pleased to release Clarisse iFX Olympus R2b!
As usual, you can download this release from your Download Area.

Clarisse Olympus R2b is VFX Reference Platform CY2018 compliant.
More information can be found here:

Please note the Clarisse binary in this release can be either runned as Clarisse iFX or as Clarisse BUiLDER. To run Clarisse iFX, use the '-flavor ifx' command line argument. To run Clarisse BUiLDER. use the '-flavor builder' command line argument. On Windows, you can run Clarisse iFX or Clarisse BUiLDER via their respective shortcuts.
Also, it is now possible to run mixed instances of Clarisse iFX and Clarisse BUiLDER at the same time on the same machine when using floating or node-locked licenses. To check the actual level of the running license, please use the "Help > About" dialog, or Licman.

Please also note that, due to Apple's very limited OpenGL support, Clarisse Olympus R2b does not run on macOS and it is not released for this system. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Finally, please note that release note entries starting with a [BUiLDER] tag are only relevant to Clarisse BUiLDER. When a release note entry does not start with this tag, the entry is relevant for both Clarisse iFX and Clarisse BUiLDER.

What's new in Clarisse iFX Olympus R2b:

New Features and Enhancements
Graph Editor
  • Graph Editor toolbar now provides attribute filters: animated-only, kinematics, non-kinematics.
  • Collapse/Expand hierarchy buttons apply to current selection or to all when nothing is selected.
  • When the Tooltip button is activated, Curve/Key information related to item under mouse is displayed next to mouse position.
  • Graph Editor toolbar now split in two: the right one, intended for curve/key editing, holds 3 buttons for extrapolation behavior (pre/post/both) + the delete button + the keyframe controls that were previously in the bottom-left dedicated sub-widget
  • Typing an expression (+=, -=, *=, /=) in key time/value numeric field now applies with respect to each selected key time/value.
  • Using time numeric field without expression on multiple keys applies change relative to each selected key time (the field used to be disabled on multiselection).
  • A contextual menu now pops-up on right mouse button click: Select All/Previous/Next items. Rectangle selection now selects crossing curves when no key is grabbed. Selected curves now turn to orange instead of white. Some editing actions are available from the contextual menu : Clear Curves/Remove Keys, Quantize, Copy Curves/Keys, Paste Curves/Keys
  • Right toolbar provides several tool buttons: to insert key at given time (with no shape modification), to stretch selected keys (either time or value), to warp selected keys (both time and value), to bake selected curves with a given frame step.
  • Panning can be performed with either left or middle mouse button together with Alt or Space modifier.
  • Zoom (RMB drag as well as mouse wheel) is now performed around initial mouse position.
  • Keys just added with middle mouse button can be dragged immediately.
