Terragen Preferences - Rendering Panel
The Rendering preference panel lets you set preferences related to rendering.
On render completion: This popup lets you choose what action is taken when a render completes. Here is a list of the settings with a description of each:
- Do nothing: No action is taken when the rendering completes. This is the default setting for this preference.
- Beep: Terragen will beep when a rendering has completed.
- Bounce Dock icon (Mac only): Terragen will bounce its icon in the Dock when rendering has completed. If you have Terragen in front when the render completes you will need to click on the Dock icon to stop it bouncing, otherwise the bouncing will stop automatically when you bring Terragen forward.
- Stop screensaver and sleep while rendering: Checking this setting will prevent your screensaver from activating or the system from sleeping while Terragen is rendering. Some screensavers can consume a lot of processor power themselves (the SETI one being a good example) and this can slow rendering down. The default for this setting is unchecked.
Automatically save all renders: If this is checked Terragen will automatically save all renders. By default renders will be saved in a "Terragen 4" folder in your Documents folder. You can change this save location by changing the "Automatic render output" path in the Customise Default Paths section of the File Saving preferences panel. The automatic render output folder can be opened from the File menu using the "Explore Automatic Render Output Files" item on Windows or the "Reveal Automatic Render Output Files" item on OS X.
The renders are saved with the format specified by the "Render save format" setting in the File Saving panel.
