Add Image Effects to cached viewports that are out-of-date

Andy Broomell


Currently you can only apply Image Effects to a viewport if it is considered Updated, otherwise Image Effects in the OIP is greyed out.


This is can be problematic, such as in this scenario:

-Update a Renderworks viewport of one area of model, perhaps at high res / high quality.

-Work on the 3D model, perhaps in a different area that doesn't even show up in the aforementioned viewport.

-Go back to the Sheet Layer and notice that the previously rendered image is a little dark, so you want to utilize Image Effects to lighten it before exporting the sheet. However, the viewport is now considered out-of-date, so you have to take the time to re-render the entire high-res rendering again for no other reason than to be able to apply Image Effects.


It would make sense that unrendered Viewports have Image Effects greyed out, but previously-rendered viewports that happen to now be out-of-date need to have it accessible. There's an image cache there that we can see, so why not let the Image Effects interface use it so we don't have waste time re-rendering.
