Environment sun bug?

Can anyone dup this. Make a (simple)surface. Give it a material. Add a environment ( I chose sky ). Select sun . See if program crashes. Running V5 sr13

@pascal . If you have time to dup this . Maybe in V5 it’s too late for a fix. I haven’t tried in the WIP. Thanks,Mark

Does the crash reporting system come up, or what exactly happens?
If the crash reported does come up, are you sending them in?

Hi John, what comes up is a crash report. I am not near the internet when I’m drawing. I can duplicate it and send it in if it helps. Thanks ,Mark
I was wondering if anyone else could duplicate it.

Hi Mark - a couple of questions -

what other panels are showing when this happens?

What is/are the display modes in the viewports?

Are your display drivers up to date?


Drivers are up to date. I am using one viewport(generally right view) nothing as far as extra . I tried to dup it to the simplest form. Just a 2 point rectsngle surface. Give it a material. Put an environment(sky). Go to turn on sun, thats when program needs closing( not responding) then send mcneel crash report(dialog box).
As soon as I am able and it happens again, it will get send in. Thanks, Mark
Oh, rendered in viewport.:slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Mark - does this happen if you start in say Wireframe in all views, do your thing, get the Sun going, then switch the view to Rendered?


I generally like working with a single viewport. I did start in wireframe. Let me try and get all the steps down and I’ll get it back to you. Let me say that I did use pictureframe to have as a reference image. I neglected to say that up front. The rest is as explained as before.–Mark

Hi @pascal, I sent in a report on this problem. Luckly it doesnt do it in the WIP.
Are you able to duplicate this behavior ? In my work, this the only instability I have come across. Thanks, Mark

That’s correct - there won’t be any fixes to Rhino 5. Good thing that it works in the WIP (-:
