[Plugin] Render Settings Lab

[Plugin] Render Settings Lab

Postby Jim » Sun May 15, 2011 12:57 pm

What

A quick-and-dirty hack for experimenting with a few undocumented SketchUp settings.

In particular, the following 2 settings were introduced in SketchUp 7.1 when a new rendering engine was implemented. When zooming/orbiting in the new engine, you may have noticed entities drop into wireframe mode and shadows turn off. The following 2 settings are supposed to give some control over when that happens.

Sketchup.full_detail_render_delay_min=1.0
Sketchup.full_detail_render_delay_max=5.0


As for the other settings in the dialog, they are not documented anywhere as far as I know; and may or may not be related to one another in any way.

Menu code has an error, it should be...
UI.menu("Plugins").add_item("Render Settings Lab") { JF::RenderSettingsLab.main }

Thank you Jim.
And what are sketchup default values?
Could there be hints about suggested values?

This does not help with any performance issues. It only allows you to tweak when the "degradation" hits (and therefore only good for moderate models where you think it is annoying that shadows and textures go away when you believe your machine should still be able to handle them).
