The guide builds on concepts found in the Document Options guide.

Use the command Options and navigate to the Bongo section of the Rhino Options dialog:

Bongo Global Options Dialog


Close Encoder When Finished

When Bongo has finished writing an animation, it will automatically close the Video Encoder.

Redraw only active view

Determines whether all, or only the active view are updated during scrubbing or preview

Show Splash Screen

Controls whether Bongo displays its introductory screen at start up. The information can still be displayed if this is unchecked by using the BongoAbout command.

Smooth Scrubbing

Controls the “Smooth Scrubbing” option - see the Timeline documentation for further details.

View Based Pivot Size

By default, the Pivot Size will get bigger when zooming in and smaller when zooming out. This option will make the pivot stay the same size when zooming in and out.

Initial Values

By changing the values in this area, you change the default value for the different settings.


Using the color swatches in this area, you can customize the color of almost every aspect of Bongo’s display and user interface.
