Buttons and Menu

As we just mentioned the buttons and menu allow you to access the same functions and exactly those listed below:

Preview

Starts rendering in progressive mode, so you can have, from the earliest moments of rendering, an idea of what will be the final result. Waiting for preview rendering is completed, the result will still be an image without any anti-aliasing. This latter is a calculation that impacts heavily on the rendering time, and its application is not appropriate when the objective is to get a preview render.

Render

After you get the picture on the final result using the speed of the progressive rendering, you can start the final rendering using the function: Render. This function, as well as make a more accurate calculation, apply the anti-aliasing, which makes an hi-quality image.

Below is a video showing how to start the final stage of rendering calculation.
