Bump maps, render mode viewport vs render

I’ve searched but can’t really find what I’m looking for.

In render mode in the viewport everything looks fine, but when I render, the bump maps dont show. I had to push them up to 100% to see them in a render, but then in the viewport render mode they look terrible - speckled. Also, while lighting looks fine in the viewport render mode (Skylight is off) colours are often washed out/overexposed once rendered. Am I missing something? Is it not possible for a render to be much closer to what you see in the viewport render mode?

Unfortunately, what you are reporting sounds like a known issue (MR-2058) that we cannot properly fix until the next major version of Rhino for Mac. I wish I could be the bearer of better news. Let me know if I’m misinterpreting what you are seeing…I’m “reading between the lines” a bit here.

Thanks Dan. Cant see the issue MR-2058. I’ll just use workarounds for the moment.
