In the 18+ years that I have been using Rhino I have lost 187.5 hours of productivity, or the equivalent of 4.68 work weeks, working 40/h week, by one tool an done tool alone: named views.
Why? because you let me save and name a view. so when I do any screenshots or rendering where views have to exactly match, if for some human reason I moved my camera I never know and I spend lots of times creating views that are not actually the name view that I named and saved. and even locked!
I just made a video with a current working file (added a bounding box for confidentiality reasons).
Take a lock a this bizarre movie, where I show a long comedy of errors:
- I change the view by rotating my camera, but the name view will stay put, like if was still correctly named/saved view.
- My thumbnails do not update, even after I check the update icons.
- They only update after I check the ‘lock view checkbox’ (not the update icons)
- The lock view checkbox besides wrongly updating thumbnails doesn’t seem to do anything. My view is still unlocked.
This is a terrible workflow. It’s been going on for waaaaaay too long and it needs to be fixed. It’s time.
Thanks for listening to this same complain I’ve been having for now 15 years or so. It’s time we can put some of the old complains behind so we can focus on the new ones. And don’t expect that my memory will fail, even if/when it does, I maintain a really good Serengueti folder with all my old, new, and yet-unshared Rhino UX horrors.
Who’s bugging this? who’s fixing this?
