Test render resolution switch? Quick-R17

Recommended Posts

In Lightwave, there's an easy option to set the render resolution to 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 via a quick drop-down or radio button, so you keep all your settings, just at a fraction of the resolution, for test renders and such.   Come to think of it, After Effects has this too.

Is there a such a thing in R17?

Thanks.

No - but in the render settings, you can set up as many render "profiles" as you like.  You can even make one a child another, so it picks up larger changes to the parent e.g. pixel size or aspect ratio.  See attached.  If you right click in here, you can create a new or new child render profile.  So you can set up one called FINAL and dial that in as you want.  Then, right click on it, make a new child called TEST and lower your quality settings or pixel size, or whatever you want to dial in.  Then, you just have to select the correct profile for whatever you are rendering via the cross hair (looks like the view through camera + icon).  Make sense?

 This is not a Final Render or a WiP, so I'll move it where it should be 🙂

  • EAlexander, thank you for the excellent knowledge.   "Child of a render profile"  -- my mind is blown.  😵

    I suspect it would have been many months before I learned that tidbit on my own, if ever, since it's not even part of my mind-space.  :signthankspin:
