What's in Visionary Render 2020.1

Thank you for downloading Visionary Render 2020.1. The release sees updates to some underlying components of our importer engine alongside a focus on addressing defects highlighted by users or our own internal testing. Key Changes This release sees Visionary Render implement some necessary updates to our CAD importer engine, ensuring that we’re tracking the latest standards across the board. From a performance perspective, we’ve also made some tweaks which mean that updates to splines with many knots now occur more quickly.

Windows 7 Support

As you may be aware, Microsoft ended their support of Windows 7 (W7) on January 14, 2020. Accordingly, 2020.1 will be the last release which we will routinely support W7. As a rule, we are bound to follow Microsoft’s lead when it comes to support of their legacy operating systems. From 2020.2 onward we will not be testing against W7 and can make no guarantees regarding its performance on this operating system.
