Main updates of Ver 4.7.0 are as follows.

The Bone structure has changed. In the new version, bone editing is done by node operation.
This will help you organize and manage bone settings. And, the compatibility with FBX/PMD is improved.
  • Align - You can align the parent and child bones straight, or align along the X / Y / Z axis.
  • Play Pose Simple Animation - During weight editing by [Paint], you can play back the saved pose to see skin deforming by the bone movement.
  • [Needle] added - [Needle] has been added to select vertices and apply fine weights. Unlike brushes, you can also paint weights on vertices behind objects.
  • Weight list - you can list and edit the weights assigned to any vertex.
[Bent] and [Shear] has been updated.
Detailed operations such as numerical specification of the bending angle are now possible.
Improved support for glTF format
For glTF import / export, bone and morphing have been supported. And setting items have been added in the Material Property of glTF shader.
These improves data conversion accuracy when import and export glTF files. It also improves the reproducibility of glTF file display on preview display in Metasequoia.
