I’m the render guy in my office so I have Flamingo installed but not many others in the office do. I’ll have a modeler send me a model for rendering, I’ll spend time setting up all the materials (usually first by importing a standard set from a directory), create a set of renders, and then save and close the file.
But then a modeler may have changes to make, so they go in, open the file, make changes (sometimes importing Acad lines or other Rhino objects), save the file and then pass back to me for new renders.
The thing is, a lot of the time it totally wrecks the file for me. Like the materials are all hyper shiny and weird and for some reason I can’t change them back. Or there are many versions of the same material in there… A lot of the time it’s faster for me to delete all materials, re-import from an older version, resign to all the layers, etc. It’s ugly and super annoying.
Has anyone else experienced this? Do I need to get Flamingo installed on all machines perhaps??
