WISH: SetObjectDisplayMode: Proxy?

#1

Proxies are important when rendering vegetation and other complex models.
Maybe a display mode that shows a simplified version of the geometry could be useful for Cycles or other rendering engines that don’t have proxy objects.

Something that would show only a percentage of vertices or edges and that could work inside blocks.
This way any geometry could be turned into a “proxy object” in one click, just by changing the display mode.


(Nathan 'jesterKing' Letwory) #2

If you need to optimise your scene for Raytraced (Cycles) then objects that repeat you should add as block instances.

Of course some sort of Level Of Detail approach would help as well, especially for objects farther away from the camera.

Yes:

Could be nice to get some focus on this topic.
