object in scene doesn't appear in RTP preview

...sometimes. Or it appears as a low poly object (but renders just fine).

I'm looking for some tips on how to force redraw of objects in the scene, or how to change the way they preview.

In this case activating and deactivating the RTP a couple times got the object to show up (a planet in the sky) but any tips on why an object does not at times draw into the RTP would be super helpful.



as a quick example, the top image below is what I see in the RTP preview and the lower one is what renders


The planet is one of the displaceable objects in Terragen, and, at the moment, they need to generate in non-RTP mode and be given time to refine the polygons before switching to RTP. We plan to make this work automatically in a future update.
