3D preview in New Window on MAC
« on: March 12, 2017, 03:48:08 PM »
No idea if this has been reported to you in the past, but the function that allowed to have a second preview window still does not work with TG4 on Mac, at least not with me. This function is very convenient for the precise arrangement of vegetation object etc. With TG3 and earlier versions it worked very well.
Thank you for reading this message.  :D

This is intentional, we had to remove the 3D Preview in New Window functionality due to the introduction of ray-traced preview (RTP). We will bring back this feature as soon as possible.

I had missed this, too, and thought it had been left out as an oversight. Found this workaround: Right click on node network panel, select "Open in New Window." Right click on the new window, select "Open New 3D Preview in Tab."

There doesn't seem to be any RTP functionality in the new window. But, like you, I use the second window to help with object placement so it's not a problem.

It is intentionally removed/disabled due to issues with using multiple RTP windows. The workaround you found apparently avoids that. ;)

Thanks for the clarification, Oshyan. Please don't fix the workaround!  :) It's a good way to divide work over two screens and I use it a lot.
