Viewports turn red. Rhino WIP for Mac

Hi everyone

Sometimes viewports turn red in Rhino WIP, one or couple of them simultaneously (see pics). To get back to normal display I have to extend the viewport with this problem and then close it. Not a big deal but still not an ideal one. Anybody knows what this problem relates to and there is any chance I can solve it?

I’m using MacBook Pro, 2018, macOS Mojave, V 10.14.3 (18D109)
Processor 2,9 GHz Intel Core i9
Memory 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
Graphics Radeon Pro Vega 20 4080 MB
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Thanks for advance,

Hi - Are you seeing red all over or just in specific circumstances?
Please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and post the result here.

Hi Wim.
I didn’t notice that I got red viewports in specific circumstances, but truth be told, I didn’t pay attention. I’ll observe this week when it pops up.

I dind’t find SystemInfo Command in this version but I guess you need this info:

Thanks for that information, Natalia!

We have another thread going on about this issue. The developer wonders if something happens when changes to the sidebar cause viewports to resize.
Could you continue this conversation in that thread?


Okay I will join the thread, thanks, Wim.
