Rendering faster without preview
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:37:06 pm »

Hi all. Is it possible to render a movie clip using Art without the preview. I understand it's slow and requires patience but the preview obviously slows it further using up RAM too. Is there a setting I don't know of. I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance,
Ian

Main Menu
File/Edit/ConfigUI
Uncheck Show Progress
in Render Preview.

Hope that helps Ian!

But remember to render a single image to check if everything shows right or you may be bad surprised after, say, some hours of continuous "nopreview" rendering. Say you were waiting 32 hours and all you get in the end are 325 frames of "Malevich's well known painting" .   :D

Thats why its better to render a movie as a series of images , then you can start from the last one rendered if anything untoward happens!

i only got into this habit relatively recently, but i can vouch that it's a good one.  also, if you go the separate-frames route, then you can use PNG instead of BMP to save a lot of disk space without any noticeable drop in image quality.
