@Piotr the first issue is a know issue that should have been fixed, but apparently isn’t in 7.30 rc (I can’t repeat it in 7.30 build of the day though)
The issue you see in V8 is of course something else that needs more investigation.
ps: I split this topic, but it should actually have been splitted in two, The first issue is I think RH-74624 Shaded display material looks like semitransparent spilled gasoline.
What makes things complicated are these things:
It depends on you monitor scaling
It depends on gamma, typically shaded is not gamma corrected, rendered is.
Today I’ve made a comprehensive test to illustrate this, see attached wire_scale.zip (10.6 MB)
I’m not sure if anything can be done to auto improve it for every display.
Well, not many people are running Rhino on a 4K screen at 100%, you can really only do that on large monitors, or if there is no text on that monitor.
So a solution needs to be found for at least the most common scales.
Does 1.4 scaling work for you in all display modes?

I’m surprised you say that looks ok, it looks super jagged to me. The moiré pattern is a clear indicator.
@ivan.galik thanks, I can see a slight jaggedness in those lines in shaded view, but not in rendered. I certainly don’t see the jaggedness you are showing. Did you find a proper multiplier with _TestWireThicknessScale that works for you?
I’m a little confused at what is happening. Are the curves in your original file white, or do they switch color, like @Piotr was showing?
