Additional MASH nodes
The MASH toolset gives you new nodes (curve, signal, world, placer, and more), as well as updates to existing nodes.
New way of doing portables: separate .svm packages - useful for plugins & so: reduces main exe size that contains only the program, then you can download the plugin package only if you want it! - ability for me to release a small program update through these separate files, without having to make the whole thing form scratch for each update. → More updated portables and less unnecessary size! This portable release includes: - Maya 2018.4 Portable.exe = main program to run - bifrost.svm (contains folder /ProgramFiles/Autodesk/Maya 2018/Bifrost (251 MB)) - maya2arnold.svm (SolidAngle M2A plugin)(518 MB) - update.svm = future minor build updates for 2018 version ► more plugins can be added later by request, or simply add them to "\Sandbox\Autodesk Maya 2018\roaming\modified\@PROGRAMFILES@\Autodesk\Maya2018\" folder, or similar others (appdata etc), just like the installed version, and at next startup the portable will recognize your new files.
