I’ve just discovered how easy and speedy it is to display objects via inheritance of Rhino.Display.DisplayConduit in Python.
However, I did not find a way to add lights to the display pipeline.
@jeff If I may be so bold, I suppose you can tell if this is exposed at all?
Can anybody tell me if and how this would be possible from within Python, I suspect it probably involves the RDK at some point?
My goal is to simulate a series of more than 1000 pointlights turning on/off and dimming, based on various algorithms. Since operations on individual lights in the document are propably slower, I want to see if I can tap into the display pipeline. We need a close to realtime preview of the various frames, anything too slow forces us to revert to rending actual frames to files.
Many thanks in advance.
