Event Timeline

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Confirmed, Medium.

I assume this is only about Material Preview and Rendered Viewport Shading, right?

There was T67025: Viewport Clipping Not Visible in Wireframe Mode and here is a quote:

We just had an online discussion about the viewport clipping and what we want to change.

  1. Show the viewport clipping in wireframe draw mode. (We will move the current code to overlay_mode.c so the code will be shared)
  2. Automatically turn off viewport clipping when rendering in EEVEE or Cycles.

@Jeroen Bakker (jbakker):

  • viewport clipping seems to be implemented in wireframe mode now, good!

But we might just be in a bit of a weird "half-implemented" state here [lookdev, rendered]?

  • in editmode, edit stuff is clipped, but the object stuff still shows outside the clipping borders?
  • in objectmode, the selection outline is clipped, but all of the objectmode draws?
  • if the plan was to turn off clipping in lookdev, rendered, then also the above two should not display "half-clipped"?

Will confirm for now...

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) renamed this task from release 2.81 ALT+B Tool no working. to Viewport clipping ALT+B in lookedv, rendered displays some data clipped, some not....Oct 4 2019, 11:53 AM

Agree. We should disable clipping in these cases.
