Environments and rendering

Hi there,

I have two issues, as the following.

1- I can’t see the environments in the preview !! as I’m using MacBook .

The second issue in the rendering does not show good quality; as you see below screenshot it’s not 100% Clear

Hello- please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and post the results here.

For the rendering, you may want more samples - I beileve the default is 50. And, you may want the denoiser - run PackageManager command, and search for and install the ‘Intel denoiser’ and then enable it in Properties for the raytraced viewport. Does that help?
