In Rhino 8 the default "Final Quality" render is now set at 1500 samples


In Rhino 8 the default “Final Quality” render is now set at 1500 samples. I believe this is an increase in samples from Rhino 7 [1000 samples]. If so, why please the increase?

[I tried searching the Forum.]

Thank you,


Final quality has been 1500 samples since 2019.

Raytraced default setting is 1000 samples. Maybe that is what you mixed up?

Hello Nathan,

Yes mixed up. And simply mistaken. I had taken the “Final Quality” setting for a render with in a view port not an image render. The word “session” escaped my reading / reading comprehension. For Rhino 8 now even I can comprehend because you have kindly programed in the “Quality” dialog drop down the number of samples.

Probably apparent that a rendered image is not a workflow I am at all familiar.

Thank you for the help and clarification. Much appreciated,
