"Nice.  The Standard engine is somewhat faster for a lot of things-- but models which are plant heavy may actually run faster using the Hybrid engine (as you've demonstrated.)  The Hybrid engine includes may more pathways of light--…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Rosana Almuzara Bertolucci's discussion Render Stop
"You should see a checkbox that allows you to select the render engine-- something like Use Hybrid Engine.   I don't know exactly because the development version I'm using doesn't have it.  I can ask Scott if you still…"

"It will be included in the new SR-- due out any day now (I hope.)  If you want to try it out before the SR comes out, it is available by using a hidden "test" command FlamingonXtDebugOptions.  Make sure to save your work when…"

"Your drawing has displacement maps used in large areas of the view (mainly in the grass materials) these are bringing the render engine to a crawl once it hits objects which have these materials.  Displacements are usually not required or…"

"Haven't seen anything like this.  You can try changing the resolution a little-- you probably intended 2048 x 1536 anyway.  If not I'll probably need to take a look at the model to see if I can reproduce it."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Raymond Chu's discussion texture mapping preview in viewport display
"We've got a minor SR scheduled for early next week.  It won't address any of these issues but it will clear our plates enough to begin work on this project.  We are planning a V5 release of the thing.  We should have a WIP…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Nicholas Mayor's discussion No Transparent Alpha Question
"I'll need to see a picture of the problem to be able to comment specifically, and perhaps the model.  Objects without alpha transparency will refract normally.  The refracted rays may strike the background.  Which background is…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Zac Mowery's discussion Rendering Screen
"You won't see this stuff in rendered view yet. Again, we're working on a version which should display Flamingo materials more accurately.  Not sure about opacity maps yet."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Raymond Chu's discussion texture mapping preview in viewport display
"If you mean "can Rhino preview decals and Flamingo textures more accurately in the viewport"-- we're working on a version that will do this.  Still a few months away.  That version will likely include a near realtime render…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion nXt Studio
"I'm not allowing you to apply to an object in nXt Studio-- at least not yet.  That would have to be done in Rhino.  Right now, you can edit materials (which includes loading stuff from files into the material definition) and you can…"

"I'm getting a weird bug, i'm trying to apply a material directly to an object, but it keeps applying to the layer rather than the specific object? The object, I found out had a material applied directly to it in the rhino file and i was…"

"You may need to change the viewport target in Rhino-- that's likely the problem.   I did add a Walk mode, using the ctrl key, which you may have hit by accident.  In the case of small objects it may be too sensitive.  There is a…"
