Many thanks @Thomas Dinges (dingto)
I'll run some tests in coming days, just played a bit and it seems Refraction BSDF still compute standard GGX instead of Multiscatter (same exact results with the two different models), not sure if it's intentional at the moment.

Ah, ok thanks for clarifying.
@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) , i think D1658 is the patch i was looking for to explain the "old" vs the "new" method, so the far left in the image I attached is *before* the patch, far right is *after* the patch has been committed. But(!), to get this new result, you need to reset the curve, it's not working automatically as soon as the user adds a point to the curve.
@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) , yes, as stated, this happens with factory settings too.
I can't find the commit but i remember (probably you?) that the behaviour of the curve mapping has been modified (now it's better btw, IMHO), there is an example here in this thread, now a single point give a sort of automatic S shape ---> link BA

Sorry for late reply. Agree with suggestions.

The T46159 bug mentioned the use of Crease edges, my model hasn't, that's why I reported to be honest.

Check normals. Most likely they are inverted

May I ask if you tested the blend? If yes, aren't you getting anything like the report?

With White Room scene i get very good results with portals. @Wolfgang Faehnle (mib2berlin), i tried yours but seems a bit extreme case given by the scene/shader/light setup.
Feb 23 2015
@Thomas Dinges (dingto) I don't understand what could be the benefits with meshes and portal bsdf, given the problems you highlighted too, if it has no advantage or doesn't open the doors to other shader trick mixing or light path why going with A option?
"B" seems the most obvious and less prone to user error usage imho, and already used in other engines.
To communicate the lamp is not emitting anymore, once "is portal" is checked, other settings should be greyed out as a feedback perhaps.

Indeed 9xx are supported (960,970,980...release date 2014) you got a card from 2008 which probably has not even CUDA capability.

Yes i tested the patch, been silent here to not create a forum-like discussion.

@Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k) happened to me the same and i also had reduced to 10ms the timeout. Once set back to 15, worked fine here.

Ok this file attached fails systematically here with Occlusion queries.
Any chance to have another look into this?

NB: i know this is not a forum so i don't want to keep discussing more than this last post from me, but i follow development quite closely and think i'd share my 2c because there is people spending hours on tasks like this which get stopped or left apart.

@Pablo Vazquez (venomgfx) what's the point of proposing a complete redesign (which adds a ton of cluttering imho, the one with 3-4 px spacing + shadow i mean) within a very specific patch? We currently have drag widget for every single panel which is visually equal to the split editor function, the task is about to update this with a more pertinent one.

A cursor placement tool would lead to a tremendously slow workflow and would not be beneficial at all imho, forcing tons of unneeded clicks.

Blender has its own paradigms, there are plenty of other places where Blender could be closer to "standards", Ctrl for tooltips "because zbrush does this way" is really weak imo, but i don't care whether it will be one or another...the point i want to take care of is the second part of my comment, to not accidentally remove Alt+mmb scroll over input fields and dropdown menus.
What zbrush does is a really weak argument.

Hi Thomas, there is that particular build not working, but recent buildbot works, so if there is no need to investigate or others are not getting problems, let's close it I'd say.
May 14 2014
nightly build blender-2.70-30361a7-win64-vc12 now works.
May 12 2014
Thanks michalis, will try a newer build as soon as available.
Just to be clear, the file I posted works for me with a older build, but not in the latest I mentioned in the report.
@lopata (lopataasdf) It is unwrapped of course.

I get crashes while tweaking the angle too, also confirmed here on Win 8.1, post #789
Apr 11 2014
I'm not sure i'm following entirely, @Lukas Stockner (lukasstockner97) are you keep refining Metropolis or trying the Lux new adaptive one?
Apr 2 2014
Unfortunately I experienced quite the same, even worse.

I can confirm the bug in the attached file but can't reproduce the issue with a new file built from scratch yet, even if rendering 5 km away from the center.

Personally, ultra-flat style isn't going to make things clearer. Agree gradients and strong embossing now are too intrusive, but a sort of mobile app design style is not the best solution for a complex and rich GUI such as Blender.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) - was wondering, would be possible/easy to implement the chance to switch between tabs pressing for example "Tab" while on mouse over the tollbar? Would fit well with Blender's fast workflow and lack of many clicks IMHO. Just a minor thing though.

@William Reynish (billrey) - i don't know how much we can discuss this here, i don't want to derail to a bigger task which is not appropriate for the current task. If you're interested you may want to quote the post on BA i linked before and we can discuss there maybe?
@William Reynish (billrey) - About implement one toolbar to rule them all, i investigated it a bit posting over BA, then run out of time and haven't got it finished. It's addressing what you listed here:
I'm also having this render border issues in official 2.69.

Yep, Alt+MMB instead of Alt+F is pretty cool, considering Alt+F did not even work in Edit Mode since it is "Fill" operator. Could be a nice Default, tested a bit.
@Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski) - indeed agree, a fast keymap to place view pivot would be great, i used it all the time in another package back in the days, now shift+B does this + zooming, works ok but isn't quick.
Tried Rotate around selection deeply in the past but then disabled, quite annoying in lot of situations, for example when visually cecking your verts zoomed in, but a long edgeloop is selected, orbiting around a specific vert is a pain, you just can't.

Depends on the user case, 4 bounces could be too much for studio-like setup indeed, characters showcasing etc.. i don't think there will be a situation where everybody happy. 2 bounces darken indirect light scene quite a lot. Perhaps adding another preset? On with 2 bounces for mostly direct lit scenes, one with 4 bounces for a good balance for interior/indirect light scenes.
