Brazil 2.0 for Rhino SR3 Beta 3 Now Available

Hi all

Brazil 2.0 for Rhino SR3 Beta 3 is now available from:

We've been working through your wish lists and bug reports, and there's a few nice bits and pieces in here.  In particular, we've fixed the displacement issues (shadows and mesh face edge artifacts) and we've sorted out the decals-on-blocks problem.  There's "Self" support for exclude lists and ray depth overrides for all ray casting materials.


 - Andy

2012-12-19: Service Release 3 Beta 3


  • "Self" support added to Exclude lists where possible.
  • Override max ray depth option added to Chrome, Glass, BAM and Porcelain
  • RenderBlowup retains the previous frame buffer and renders over the top of the previous rendering if possible.

Bug fixes:

  • Decals did not work correctly on block inserts
  • Porcelain specular color did not work
  • Renderblowup command did not render the same area that has been selected in the viewport.
  • Per-pixel displacement artifacts appeared at mesh edges
  • Per-pixel displacement caused incorrect shadows

Tried the include/exclude lists with occlusion texture and it doesn't seem to have any effect  :/

Ahhhh - nuts.  Yes - this relies on a new feature in Rhino 5 SR2 (which is, of course,  the one we tested on) - per object shaders.  I will be able to solve it for Brazil materials (so it won't work on a Basic Material until SR2) but I'm about to leave for the holidays and I won't have time to sort it out until after Christmas now.'ll have to hold on a bit longer!

Been holding on a few years. What's a few extra weeks? have a great holiday Andy :)

I have a case where it's being a LOT slower. I have a sequence of an aircraft taking off and usually towards the end of the shot it speeds up a lot because there's little in the way of scenery(just grass and pavement and a billboard treeline.) Instead it's actually getting slower. Tried hiding all of it to narrow down, no help, it just gets hung up for a ludicrous amount of time on the horizon. Unless somehow the motion blur settings that beta 3 says it doesn't work with my current Bongo are 'stuck on' or something, I don't see any evidence of it actually doing that.

Jim - displacement at the horizon is going to be slow.  If you have some way to get rid of that, that will solve it.

Hi Andy,

This wasn't due to displacement.
