Hi all -
I have been having fun trying out a new render engine (Bella Render), side-by-side with our current production render engine (Maxwell).
I am curious to know why the render engine setting is a global setting, and not a document-specific one: some projects might use one, others another, but when I change the render engine in one, they all open with that newly selected render engine.
The problem is I think some things get lost in translation. I think, for example, that Maxwell materials get converted into Rhino materials, and lose the “referenced” attribute if the current renderer is not Maxwell. This means I have to be careful not to open a file with the wrong render engine as the “global” engine.
I would love to propose that this setting become document-specific, with the caveat that there are surely ramifications I am not familiar with…!
