Because certain fields in some nodes changed their defaults, and because of other changes described in Chapter 2, your Inventor 2.0 application may look different in Inventor 2.1 even if it compiles and runs fine.
Table 3-1 lists changes in appearance and points to information that helps you fix the problem. If you're working with the online version of the manual, click on any “Reason” for more detailed information.
Scene Appearance Change
Texture quality looks different.
When you view a texture-mapped object, the texture seems to disappear.
Shapes that were smooth shaded look faceted.
When you set the draw style to wireframe, some of the lines are missing.
A scene that has many spheres (and/or cones, cubes, cylinders) seems to render slower than before.
Vertex-based shapes look the same, regardless of the SoComplexity value.
The material looks different than it did in Inventor 2.0 for objects that had a different material for every part or every vertex specified.
Colors in a shape look wrong.
A vertex-based shape used several colors repeatedly for the different parts and this no longer looks right.
In a program that contains direct calls to OpenGL, the materials look wrong.
