Rhino BETA 2017-Nov-28 Now Available

Download Rhino BETA now!

What is BETA? We’re not adding any new features, nor are we making significant changes to the UI. We’re also done breaking the APIs, so plug-ins written for this Beta will work in the commercial release of Rhino 6.

For the next few builds, we’ll be wrapping up documentation, localization, and working with our third-party developers to get their plug-ins ported to Rhino 6.

I am having an Issue with Cycles. I simply can’t use it anymore. It is not shown as a Renderer Option. Another buggy thing is that my Viewport Panels are gone everytime I reopen Rhino. I haven’t had this Issues with 11-21 (I can’t remember the last time I checked Cycles though!)…

Simular issue here, I have installed the beta twice now and can not select cycles as a renderer. States current render is rhino with no other option, I checked the plugin list and it shows the cycles plugin is working and I can choose different cycles acceleration methods I.e. CPU, NVidia or Amd .
Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

C.f… @nathanletwory there is no more cfr cycles for rhino just raytraced viewport

Correct, it was already gone in the public BETA from the 21st. CfR will be available again with the next WIP (pretty much right when V6 gets released). If you want to do modal rendering for some reason (i.e. render at different resolution than current viewport) you can use ViewCaptureToClipboard and ViewCaptureToFile. Those both use the same modal rendering mechanism, just without the modal render window.

Thanks for information :smiley:
