Several questions about Artistic and Pen display modes -
In both of these display modes the background is locked (i.e. - the option to choose another image file is greyed out) - is there any way to override this and choose another background?
The background shows through the objects in Artistic and Pen. I can see why that should be the default - in order to achieve the look of pen on paper (or parchment). But is there any way to alter that behavior so, for instance, the background could be a 2 color gradient but the objects would be another color? I know I can change the background and object color in shaded and rendered mode but my client likes the look of the line drawing of Artistic and Pen but wants me to show her more flexibility in background choice and object / background relation. I’d like to stay in the Rhino environment and not have to export to Illustrator.
In the McNeel docs there’s a page called Display Modes. That page suggests that under View > Display Modes > at the end of the list, after Pen, there’s a tab for New. I don’t have New - has it been moved? Deleted? Disgraced?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
