I simply can’t figure out how I can “re-upload” a scene and retain the lighting settings. When I chose a new file (almost identical to the old one), the lighting settings are all back to the default and under “load light scene” I only see “default” and “legacy”.
This surely can’t be how it was designed to work. Why have re-upload but then it changes the lights and I can’t load the light scene. As mentioned before saving light-scenes only makes sense if they are global, meaning if I save the light scene in one model I want to be able to see that in another model.
I mean I don’t want to be too critical here, but the whole experience of setting up the model and parameters on shapediver.com is a huge mess. Its unintuitive, cumbersome and has many bugs for the little functionality it actually has. Setting up lights is unusually hard, especially since any edits you make wont be very permanent. You always end up setting up all the settings again any time you upload something. You can’t rename lights and they have typical developer names like “DIRECTIONAL0”, “DIRECTIONAL1”, etc. That is a perfect example of developers being in charge of functionality and interface design, which is exactly the impression I get from it. A bit of UX and basically a redesign of the whole editor are the only ways out of this that I can see.
The biggest problem really is that it would be much more sensible to set everything up in Rhino/GH already, but that would mean you would have to have the same viewer model in Rhino as on Shapediver.
