Trivial but slightly annoying issue - unsure whether this is vray or formz

When you have the 'Vray Messages' window open on the MacOSX version of FormZ8.6 (build 9995) (VRay build 1138 Dec15) and left click on the header bar of the messages window repeatedly to bring window focus - eg. or to pick it up to move it about the screen space - it constantly resizes and sometimes changes state to open and close.


Otherwise all running pretty good here and nothing much to report so far - but I need to do more extensive experimenting with it and am about to try the more obscure fur and displacement tools.


And the overall results so far have been very fast and look good for a range of uses and model types.


I'm impressed with the interactive rendering - this is something that really makes it stand out.

I still like what Renderzone can do but this adds another whole dimension to the range of output images possible and speed of working.

At the price so far i'd buy it for just that function and the overall speed and 'look and feel' of the images so far.


Also impressed that it will render really well existing general formz model setups and materials. I have tried just running through my model archive and dropping a basic vray light in to see how they look wth some very good straight up results.


A thing that annoys me though is the Vray setting option for Use "GPU" & "Hybrid" which seem not to work and I assume this is irrelevant for the type of Video cards available in the iMac and general Apple Mac line of products. Using a combination of them caused quite a few crashes until i realised this was probably not going to work on the AMD Video cards and left them off.

It might be a good idea to grey them out or remove them from the Mac version till libraries for the AMD cards are available.

It would be great to see a viable GPU option developed to push things along.

The "GPU" & "Hybrid" option works great - but only using CUDA with GTX Nvidia cards in OSX. (so "no" for the current iMac/macpro)

I am really happy this is implemented into Vray for OSX, even if the options atm only are:


- "Old" Macpro with GTX Card(s) installed

- egpu connected to thunderbolt macbook using High Sierra

- DIY / Hackintosh


And there is hope that apple will offer an Nvidia option again with next gen. macs.

Just guessing of course.
