  1. I can sometimes fix this issue by changing the render mode from 'final quality renderworks' to 'custom renderworks' with the same settings.
  2. There are three or four types of errors, but knowing that they are there, I don't go looking for them, so I cannot give a complete writeup. Two different errors in lighting, black background instead of white, the new shadowcatcher texture does not work in viewports and alpha channel fail – are among them
  3. Yes, I do both types. But for large and heavy jobs viewports do not consistently render the scene correctly.
  4. Sorry for the rant – I actually do love VW...
  5. How is this still an issue? I am waiting for VW to stop re-rendering a scene for the umpteenth time, because I accidentally made a slight swipe on the mouse, as the rendering started, and that is a very bad thing. I have hit escape and command-period a few dozen times and yelled at the computer, but to no avail. I would force-quit if it wasn't for the fact, that I have failed to save for a while, and the auto-saves never ever regenerate objects with complex histories, and for some reason I still cannot deselect the completely unnecessary compression of autosaves. So I wish I could just stop those goddang renderings, I don't think it is too much to ask. Ahrrr.
  6. Reversing to SP1 seems to have fixed it. I am not going to update again until SP3, so I guess it will be hard to pinpoint the problem, unless it proves to be a general issue. This is my hardware: Modelnavn: iMac Model-id: iMac16,2 Processornavn: Intel Core i5 Processorhastighed: 2,8 GHz Antal processorer: 1 Antal kerner i alt: 4 L2-buffer (pr. Core): 256 KB L3-buffer: 4 MB Hukommelse: 8 GB Boot ROM-version: IM162.0212.B00 SMC-version (system): 2.32f20 Serienummer (system): C02QCWCWGG77 Hardware-uuid: A8EFF701-E7A0-5C02-8A27-8E8A34904ED8
  7. I use the standard, please send me the link, thank you.
  8. Sure, later. Right now I need to finish a project. Jim, do you know how to backstep to SP1 with Service Select?
  9. I restarted, but it did not fix the issue, alas.
  10. The OIP randomly ceases to display information about selected objects. Is anyone else getting this? Please inform me on how to return to SP1 fast with service select – I am too busy to battle with this problem. Regards
  11. Where did my bottom, back and right isometric views go? Am I the only one, who gets greyed-out views? – see the attached pic. As a general purpose user, I do use them sometimes, so I hope, it is a temporary flaw.
  12. I mean the second – but I am mistaken. They only seemed to be reapperearing because I crashed the program repeatedly in the first days when I was checking out new functions. I still wish I could turn off tooltips, by the way.
  13. Congratulations on the latest edition of VW – I enjoy some of the new features a lot. I keep getting tooltips every few minutes – and I get the same ones even if I click 'dont't show again', which is really annoying. Last year I requested an option to turn off tooltips altogether. Did I get it?
  14. Thanks for the SP4. Since version 2017 VW becomes very slow, whenever I press the render tab of the OIP. Let me rephrase that: It becomes very, very, very slow. This was not fixed in any of the updates, so I hope, that it will be fixed in VW 2018. I run VW on an iMac late 2015 with the latest OS. Same problem on my old, late 2011 iMac.
  15. I rarely use interpolated surfaces, but I am doing it right now. And I realize, I do not get any snaps to the control vertices. Instead the snaps go to the now invisible nurbs vertices. I would have used the snaps to align some control vertices to other control vertices – and now I cannot. Can I get a fix on that?
