I think this would be a great feature to implement - it will really help those people w/ 3d experience (but not blender experience) who want to learn Blender. It's also a bit more intuitive for those who don't have a lot of 3d understanding.

That's a good point.. but I'm not sure how C4D handles primitives. They aren't really meshes until you make them editable so I'm not sure if it's saying 6sided cube/100, or cube/100 in X, Y and Z (if that makes sense). I'll look into it later today. Staggering/5-8fps isn't accurate. It's smooth upda...

nope! I know in the past that AA lines on Geforce (non Quadro) cards were done essentially in software (unless you had the SoftQuadro hacks) and there was a performance pentalty. 1600x1200@32, pretty smooth considering how many vertices are moving aboot.. I'm going to need to start blendering again ...

If anyone's interested, a 100x100x100 cube in C4D w/ 100x100x100 segments gets about 5-8FPS guesstimate (wireframe or shaded wireframe) on my PB17. Pretty good IMO, but I haven't used a PC in years so I can't compare it to current PC performance. Are Radeon 9600 AA lines done in hardware (ie: AA lin...

Hi there, The thing is....we all perceive "acceptable-speed" differently, I work with 3d on a "Pro-level" meaning that I must deliver stuff that brings food on the table, for that...I use both Blender and 3dstudio max (4). As do I, but I use primarily Maya (work, a little bit of LW now and then) an...

How much ram do you have in your PB? I've got the same Powerbook 17 (1GB) and I just created a quick scene w/ about 120K faces (ico&uvspheres). Viewport interaction is slower, but still quite usable. Also, double check your Power Management settings in the Energy System Preference. Make sure that CP...
