I’m using Colibri to iterate through a set of solutions, and export screenshots along the way.
This is working fine, but when using a rendered preview mode, each image is one step behind.
I guess this is because the rendered preview is drawn only after grasshopper finishes completely.
As a workaround, I am now baking (and deleting) the objects with a script, but I am wondering if there is a better way to trigger a rendering before an image export.
Hi @nathanletwory, I saw you answered a few related posts, so I hope it is fine I address you directly.
Exporting views goes well for non-rendered display modes, but for a Rendered view I cannot get the viewport to update before exporting an image
also does not help unfortunately. Can you think of a way to make this work?
Did you try the script from a couple posts later?
Thanks for your suggestion. I tried the script before, but without luck.
To be sure, I just tried it again, and by chance I discovered a way in which it does work:
- if the current display mode is set to Rendered, it won’t export the updated view
- if the current display mode is set to any other, and you request a “Rendered” export, it does!
