I had a problem with my sidebar without an icons, and I had to install once again default.rui, anyway after this problems, and restarted sidebars I can’t work in Rhino, while rendering /V-ray/. I could work before - I could minimalize render window, and work at the model, opening another file, reopening and so on, and now I can minimalize render window, but I can’t do anything more… when I shutdown render window while rendering, I can’t even to stop it, cause “stop” button works only in this freaking window which I closed so I have to wait till it’s done to unblock Rhino. Do you have any idea how to change that? Is this typical problem with Rhino - I’ve serched Google and nothning.
Thanks for your help.
There’s a lot going on in your post but, generally, in Rhino, when you render, you can’t keep working in the document. The “Stop” button will stop a RhinoRender session. At that point, you will again be able to work in the document.
I’m not sure if that answers the question…
Thank you for your answer. Well… yes and no, because I could work in rhino while rendering before I got this problem with sidebar. Seriously, I could click render button, start rendering, minimalize render window, and work on model, even open new document, and my rednering was still in progress. For me it was so natural and obvious than when i lost this ability I start to ask my colegue how I can restore this function, and she said that is not possible to work on the model while rendering, she can’t… but hey, I got this before! I work for a years like that, so it wasn’t a mirracle or a dream For me it was a shock that I couldn’t work on a model during RhinoRender session. So… does anybody has such experience like me?
Rendering with the built-in “Rhino Render” has always used a modal window that prevents you from continuing working in the Rhino scene.
If you are always using V-Ray to render, the issue that you are reporting is likely a V-Ray issue and is something that you will have to contact Chaos Group about.
