Rhino 5 anti-aliasing setting to match Rhino 4

I am testing Rhino 5 at the moment, and I don’t know what settings to set Rhino 5 at so that I can see lines clearly.

I took a screen shot comparing Rhino 4 and Rhino 5. As you can see, Rhino 4 produces sharper and clearer images.

Is this something to do with Anti-aliasing setting? I set the setting to None and still does this blurry thing.

Any ideas?

Hi Toby - here in V5, if AA is set to none, I do get a clean crisp ortho aligned rectangles as in your image - I can only get the blurries if I ask for 2x or 4x antialiasing.


Where in V5 is the AA settings for curves?

Hi Joddy - In V5 there is only one setting for AA, under Options > View > DisplayModes > OpenGL, it is not separate for curves, if that is what you mean.
There is testLineSmoothing, which does do nice things to curves/isocurves/edges and is independent of the AA settings. You can play with that, keeping in mind that this is an unsupported test command that you use ‘at your own risk’.

Pascal, there’s something odd om my V5 (Evaluation).
The AA dropdown list is disabled.
Also, what does it actually affects?

Hi Joddys- what does the info about openGL and the video card, below the setting, tell you? It may be that your card does not support AA - that is the case on my MacBook Air.


I’m using a notebook with it onw graphics processor…that’s probably it.
