Texture mapping slow


(jahn) #1

Hey Brazil
For some reason in large files when I want to update texture maps in the rendered mode it is super slow to update- I am having to import to a seperate file update then reimport.

Adding to this the material properties do not like to be changed in the render mode.

Just to double-check: you mean Rendered mode, not Raytraced, right?

Yeah just using brazil and rendered mode as work flow now.
Also crashes in render mode when you try to turn on a large number of layers.

Can you share such a large file through www.rhino3d.com/upload ? If you paste a link to this discourse topic in the comments I’ll know. The uploader keeps your files confidential.

Where is it that I can save the file with all the materials attached?

(Nathan 'jesterKing' Letwory) #7

Use Save As menu and ensure you have the checkbox for saving textures checked. That will ensure all textures get saved in the 3dm

Did you manage of this case? I see a crash report submitted by you 2 days ago, but I assume you had a crash today as well?

I do see the very slow response on material changes. It appears that Brazil is doing something with baking. I’ll log a bug for this. Actually, I don’t see the slow response on material change. That happens only in Raytraced mode, and that is due to baking of materials.

I also would like to add that when in the brazil material panel when you push the + button to make a new material the rhino render options for Gem Glass Paint etc appear if you use any of these it drastically slows the render -10fold
