Display bug? No seethrough edges with Sun+Skylight

It has been a while (early V6) since this is happening: when Sun and Skylight are enabled, any edges visible through transparent objects disappear or become very faint. It messes things up here, especially the ability to get nice illustration-like viewcaptures with edges, or working in that setup in general.
Any chance we can have that fixed ? @jeff - is that something you can see/replicate?

Here is what I mean:

Hi @Jarek
Sorry to hi-jack your thread, but what software do you use to make those nice videos?
TIA, Jakob

hi Jakob,

I use Camtasia for screen recordings, and for sharing in the posts here I upload to Screencast free account directly from Camtasia (it is one of the production options). The process is really quick and simple.

hth,

I can’t seem to load the video into Rhino and reproduce the problem… :smiley:

Seriously though, you should always include your simple model on things like this, and maybe even your display mode exported to .ini file… It just really helps me here on my end so that I don’t always have to try to reproduce the issues from scratch. If you were the only user I had to deal with, then it’d be ok…but there’s at least 1 or 2 more users that I think use Rhino, so including as much as you can in your post knocks down a lot of time on my end… :wink:

Thanks,

No problem; since it happens in all models (video just shows any simple boxes) I skipped the step, sorry. I made two boxes for you (transparent materials and solid) and exported the Rendered mode I am using when seeing this.

If this is not just my problem, hope it helps the other 1 or 2 Rhino users out there…:wink:
