Dynamic Views

I've wanted this feature for years (I've been using ArchiCAD since Version 6.5, can you believe it?). Okay, so I've always wanted to have 2 or more windows open at the same time with different views of a project. Not a problem. But, as you make changes in one window, the others update on-the-fly so you can see the implications in real-time. For example, you move an object or wall, or any element in plan, and you see what happens in perspective. Or make a change in perspective, and see the changes dynamically in plan. Long ago, I was told the computer power needed to do that just wasn't available. Surely it's possible now,  especially with the latest Apple silicone or NVIDIA cards in Windows, no? Look what can be done dynamically in Twinmotion these days! Even if it was only in wire-frame, I'd be happy with that feature. It's a design tool - not just fluff. Bentley's Microstation was doing it in wire-frame back in the 1990s. So there's my wish. Get coding Graphisoft. I'll beta. Cheers!
