I haven't used this feature in a while, so I haven't checked. I'm working on a Cinema 4D render at work right now. Remind me and I can try to check it when I get back to my freelance office at home.
I don't recall it being removed.
Is this just me or is it the same for everyone?
same for everyone. I actually noticed it a while back but never took the time to really explore what's wrong.
you are correct, it appears that checking "show rendering progress in info panel and flowchart" is giving different results in CC2014 vs later versions.
the second line is added when you check the "rendering progress in info panel and flowchart" On. it's not giving anything new really. if you cache it would show it in the first line. if you play it, it would show "playing".
this looks like a bug to me, help address it here: Feature Request/Bug Report Form
Thanks I'll file a report, I though it must be a bug as it does very occasionally show what's going on. It's not like it's an essential feature but it used to come in really handy every now and then.
thank you. it's a useful feature.
