@wim Your assumption is correct, plus smoothness and efficacy of interactivity.
@nathanletwory Do you have Keyshot installed? Not trying to be obnoxiously opprobrious, rather, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video tens of thousands, then hands on is, perhaps, priceless.
If the answer is no: I sincerely think toying with Keyshot will be more effective than any video posted. If the answer is yes: have you noticed how quickly one gets something looking way better than what @wim conjured? (Sorry wim, trying to help.)
More importantly, notice the fluidity and rapidness of interaction while manipulating and studying views in real time? It is this aspect that, if you can simply mimic in a mode, will be recognized, applauded, and will add serious value to Rhino, IMO.
Others on the forum have repeatedly pointed to this particularly welcome KS aspect as well. If memory servers, @gustojunk took you to task over his first impression of relative interactivity of an earlier WIP. I know you worked on that and improved, yet such is still wanting, in comparison, last I looked, which was about a month or two ago. Sorry, I’m putting very limited time into 6 until Mac 6 WIP is out, so if I’m off or behind, I apologize.
Look, I don’t know what is technically possible with present resources. I think the effort so far is really great and welcome. I know it will only improve too with time. Just trying to keep the bar high.
To be clear, the aforementioned is related to the rapid viz aspect of the raytraced view, not perfect presentation renderings. Rather not hear about gemstones and Maxwell, please, different aspect. (But those Maxwell diamonds someone posted in another thread were really really good!)
