I have been unable to run the Cycles Render Engine (as an alternative default renderer) in the last few weeks… So I downloaded the latest version on github. When re-running Rhino WIP (Rhino 6 SR0 2017-5-23 (Rhino WIP, 6.0.17143.8371), I get the following error:
“Cycles for Rhino is too old, get a newer version from https://github.com/mcneel/CyclesForRhino/releases/latest”
The link sends me:
PLUG-IN REPOSITORY OBSOLETE
CyclesForRhino plug-in will be bundled with the next public Rhino WIP.
So, do I understand correctly that the Cycles Render Engine will be provided as a WIP feature in the next release (without requiring a separate module install) ? Any idea when ?
Btw – Not sure if it is my lack of understanding, but I find it sometimes difficult in the posts differentiate if one is referring to the Raytracing Display Mode (based on Cycles) or to the Render Command which integrates Cycles Render Engine. Perhaps this would profit from aggreeing on a terminology for referring to one or the other.
