Render Area Preview
« on: September 22, 2008, 04:29:37 pm »

Maybe this Ideia could be not that helpful for everyone, I don't know,
but maybe...

I mean sothing like this:




This could help if the person has to render a complex scene, but want to see, for example, the shadow in that area...

For me that could really really helpful...

of course, the options (like AA and stuff) could continue in the window and the render, be shown in the normal place, that was just an example

:) Thats it
Thx for reading

Cant you just set the camera to do that instead by changing the focal point? I mean your way may seem more efficient, but if you had to re-render it how would you set the coordinates again?

Well, I know it, but if we're in a scene and you want to see only that area, the position of the camera, or the intensity of vof will be different when you try that in the original position

about the second thing, the window could have a button "render last area", I don't know...

they have that feature in blender, and it is really useful to quickly see what different parts of the scene will look like.
