Yes they do. Many did and I’m not planning on going back and quoting everyone.
And having a Windows Forms-based paneling is just bad. It’s old and should be done better.
Talking about which design approach to take, well, that’s subjective, and I wouldn’t argue there. I’ll say ‘Go flat. It’s sharper, quieter and better’, but someone will say ‘No. Go full 3D. Pop everything out, make it scream’.
I would only like for us to agree that Rhino’s UI is old and rusty, and needs a change, and someone should look into that.
And for the fifth time - The behavior of the UI doesn’t need to change drastically. Rhino’s UI behaviour has some very good ideas behind it and I like it. If it was unusable to me, I wouldn’t use Rhino.
But the skin and the code behind it should be modernized.
I never said people are “narrow-minded”. Please don’t take my sentences out of context.
… talking about how different software packages are implementing ‘monochromatic’ design, because today UI designers are doing some amazing things. They are out there, you just need to look around, and appreciate the good work they are doing.
As someone said before - Building a new UI is not just “slapping-on” a new skin. It needs to be done through a scientific approach. Reviewing user data, and taking into consideration the wishes and needs of those users.
The design and the overall look is just a bi-product of it all.
How far are McNeel ready to take this, it’s up to them. Will it be just a revamped design over their existing GUI, or really go into improving some aspects of the behavior of their UI, I don’t know.
I would encourage them to go full-blown “Blender 2.8”, and rethink how different people use Rhino. But that’s just me.
In the end, something needs to be done. Rhino is lacking behind and it might hurt the users and the functionality of the software itself in the long run.
