I mean I still use it as part of any rendering task but obviously there isn’t going to be a V6 version. I just tried to see if I could switch to Cycles, but not just yet, buggy and incomplete as Neon still is. The complete lack of a low-quality dynamic display during rotation is a showstopper for trying to use it as an actual “working” view, even if it’s somewhat faster to render than CPU-only neon(at my old job I was able to get a Caustic board, which was awesome…maybe I should try to get it from them I wonder if the Win7 driver would work on 10?)
I wholeheartedly concur! For now I’m stuck with a slightly dated workstation at work - a Quadro 4000 card on a Xeon E5-2620 CPU - and Cycles (as a realtime renderer in the viewport) is just not cutting it in terms of speed, ease of use or quality compared to Neon. I guess there’s still some optimizing to do, but for now I’m shying away from the WIP for that reason.
james, my cycles here defaults to bounding boxes when rotating and as such rotates quickly. Are you not seeing that with your set up?
I’m using a quadro 6000 and its pretty snappy…I had neon and a caustic board too, and I don’t miss it with the current cycles set up-
What’s the story with Neon for Rhino 6? If I buy Rhino 6, will I miss Neon too? It’s worked well for me for ~4 years. MUCH FASTER than the standard Rhino render and images look way better too, though maybe it’s just easier to use? Waiting 2.5 hours for a decent render instead of a few minutes in Neon won’t be fixed by buying new hardware! Looking here:
Maybe there is a standard “preview” mode now that is really fast and good? Oh yeah, I see… Looks cool!
New and improved [R6] viewport display modes produce stunning high-resolution output images at interactive frame-rates.
No Neon for V6
I don’t think so. Rendered and Raytraced mode probably will get you pretty far, as you already may have noticed from the what’s new page.
