Render log

Recommended Posts

I find that the Maxwell log when rendering is very useful and would be a great addition to straight on Render Zone.  If there is a material problem or geometry issue that causes a failed render it would show up in the log and you could then search easily for the offending object.

 

I would also love to be able to stop a render quickly and easily.  Currently hitting Command Period or escape only works on models up to a certain size.  Once my models get bigger than a certain point it never works.  It seems that the computer is totally bogged down and the program uses all available resources disabling the keys.  I might mention that this is on all my machines regardless of how fast they are.  For the last 25 years my solution has been to save the project before rendering and then if there is an issue I Force Quit the program through Task Manager and restart.

Along these lines is a feature EI's Camera would employ while rendering. A display of all rendering settings would appear (along with a progress screen"). This would allow you to terminate the render if you noticed an incorrect setting while wondering if everything's okay.
