Konstantins Visnevskis (kivig) added a comment to T52656: Driver stops updating dynamically if no/incomplete variable is defined.

Thanks, but the reason of using self is the object having many thousands of copies (things like petals of opening flowers etc.). Referring each one to itself is not really possible.

@Ronan Zeegers (ronan) ducluzeau
Yes, I was using it for modelling and thank you for an insight and explanation of the reasons, but that is not the same as being logical :)

  1. "Only Render" display is disabled, thus it is logical to expect the view not to be influenced by what will be rendered.
  2. Viewport layers are detached from render layers, thus it should be only affected by layers that are set locally.

Konstantins Visnevskis (kivig) added a comment to T52360: CPU slow-downs extremely but speed-ups when moving render window.

Task manager graph shows CPU utilization not speed. It is logical that there's less computation while fetching transparent tiles, hence the lower utilization. Also the model seems to have relatively simple shader, hence not a big difference in render speed between geometry and background.

From how it looks - you may just have double edges there that don't overlap perfectly, hence you see some pixels of them.

That's normal. Obj files often don't contain materials, so changing viewport shading mode (that "button" is a viewport shading mode, it doesn't put materials on anything) shows them shaded white.

Just run into this. So basically - viewport preview doesn't work for semi transparent objects as what you see is not what you get. I understand that probably output can be changed into what is shown in viewport theoretically, but I wasn't able to do that in compositor. I can get a same image as if viewport would be rendered over some color, but not if keeping the alpha (adding un/premultiply seems to fix alpha issue, but brightens the colors, that doesn't mach the viewport again).

Ideally a "find missing files" function, could have in additional to "Find All" option to replace the packed files too, so that only known not to exist files could be unpacked after. But that's definitely a feature request...

Konstantins Visnevskis (kivig) added a comment to T47315: Camera shows no animation in graph, though it has it..

That's the point - objects visibility state icon is not the only criteria for it to actually be visible. Local viewport layers do that too, hence it's not enough to iterate through that to get if user actually is aware of the object. Didn't find a proper way to do that in an hour long googling.

Konstantins Visnevskis (kivig) added a comment to T47315: Camera shows no animation in graph, though it has it..

Thanks, that clarifies the reason it's not showing. Had to deal with same problem on what objects python considers visible. However that's not exactly right behavior. Though I agree that it's hard to figure out a quick fix without crippling something else...
Maybe that's far fetched idea in terms of coding, but how about considering all viewports currently displayed inclusively, instead of scene, to define visibility state? That would fix both this issue and accidental changes to actually invisible objects via some scripts that depend on visibility list too.

I was thinking the same at first, but with limit of only 3 bounces almost all rays reach their limit. So then there either is some mythical condition when shader takes seriously more to compute single bounce or the ray doesn't really get terminated after the limit in some cases. I'm only speculating of course. Wish there'd be a way to see what actually happens :D

I see. So if I get it right the data basically is there but it has no v.goup definition. (I presume so because as soon as I manually create correctly named group for each object everything seems to work).
Could the solution be then to have a function that just copies v.group list from active object (or does it once while linking)? I guess it won't be a problem for me to python that, but it probably is a frustration for lots of people.

Viewport shouldn't override anything, especially if it affects final render.
