    Please add openGL 4 support.

    The application Enscape, which is used for architectural rendering and virtual reality, requires OpenGL 4.3.

    Too old OpenGL cause problems in displaying 3D window in ARCHICAD. It is main window in this well known design software for architects.

    The Parallels Desktop Engineering team is doing its best to improve OpenGL support in Windows virtual machines. As of now, only the OpenGL core profile (version 3.2) is supported in the Windows virtual machine using Parallels Desktop for Mac. For reference please refer to this article https://kb.parallels.com/115487

    Hello. Since I installed the last software release and I have now severe issues in Open GL environment with an application I'm using since long time. I'm attaching an example of what it's happening.. The problem concerns 3D rendering. As you may see, there is lack of continuity in the render rensults. In Parallel16 I can't longer see the option to activate the vertical syncronization. I'm wondering if this could be related with the issue I'm suffering and If there is any way to fix it. In the menawhile, I'm going to install an older softwre release. It's disappointing one updates the software to fix problems and finds news issues. Thank you.

    How far are we in the process of getting OpenGL 4.4 in our Parallels? - at the moment I canĀ“t use Enscape or any RealTime 3D rendering programs for Revit 21.1.

    Here's adding another OpenGL 4.x request. I'm trying to run SCENE from FARO, https://www.faro.com/products/construction-bim/faro-scene/. It is a point cloud rendering package used to build models from 3D laser scanners. It gives me an error message that without OpenGL 4.01 or better, it cannot render point clouds. It does, however, work fine as far as generating the clouds from my scans (as shown to me when I upload the projects I'm doing to a colleague's Windows PC). It just can't draw them for me to see on my own Mac without OpenGL 4.x installed support. Thanks for any help you can provide in advancing OpenGL deployment on PD.

    Parallels, you are dragging your feet here -- It is highly likely that the user base to Parallels are in fields that require the use of PC-only software...... a safe assumption? And many of these PC only software companies are updating to require the most recent OpenGL updates and as you fall behind, you are leaving your consumer base behind. I am a recent adopter of your software and I am very impressed with how you juggle my PC alongside my Mac. Just opening Revit and it working seamlessly is a gift, but I will probably have to request a refund after learning how poorly your VM software handles the rest of my apps and overall workflow.

    Please start fixing this issue before you direct yourself into a hole you cannot crawl out from. Nobody cares if the paint app or Chrome can be run in parallel to their mac apps......we need powerful programs like Rhino (w/RHino.Inside for Revit) and Enscape to work, NOW! These are the latest in affordable and approachable software in the industry of architecture and your VM handles them like a Boomer using TikTok.
