rendering operation

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to stop the renering (final hidden line removal, quick, etc..) in progress? I have noticed that sometimes I decide I do not want that particular effect and the program continues to keep going until the operation is finished or I "force quit". I have also noticed that unless I reset the rendering type to "wireframe" before quitting the program will render the model whenever the file is opened or whenever "model layer - perspective" is selected.

Command period should halt any of the rendering operations in progress. On windows ESC will do the same thing.

When you save a document it retains your current view and rendering mode. If you save a document while in a rendered view it will re-render when you open the document. You can simplify this a little by saving a sheet while you are in wireframe mode. You can turn off the options for rememebering layer and class visibilty and just have it remember the view. You can similarly create a render sheet as well.
