Skylight shadow resolution

Saw this thread and tried rotating - works faster.

Zooming instead doesn’t fall back to the grainy “shadows” (and model representation), it just renders in best config. model keeps being slow JUST THEN.

I see zooming use the dynamic skylight shadow resolution here in Rhino for Mac 6.16. Run the SystemInfo command in Rhino 6 and paste the info back here please. Also let me know how you’re rotating the view please… 3D mouse, Tablet, Track pad, three button mouse etc. Thanks.

Sorry, didn’t realize I was using the RC.

Thanks, I see this too now but only with the track pad two finger zoom (works fine with my Wacom Intuos). I have filed it as

Were you using the track pad or the magic mouse to Zoom? I want to add that info to the report. Thanks again.

Yes, I always use the track pad.

In addition, it doesn’t occur while zooming with [cmd]-trackpad.
That’s better.
