Background rendering

how can I get a result like the one in the attached image?

This is a tough one to answer right now with the Rhino for Mac WIP alone. There are a bunch of rendering changes in the works and I bet in the next few builds a result like this will be possible.

In short, you need a noise texture in the bump channel of a metal material for the water plane. Then the environment can be set to a two color gradient from violet to blue. The Skylight will need to be on and a directional light added for the sun. This technique will work in any renderer for the most part. You can use Maxwell or Keyshot now on OSX to render your Rhino models outside of Rhino or wait for the rendering changes to happen in Rhino for Mac that will make it possible there.
