Big request: optional disable texture rendering preview!

Post by zeitmeister » Mon Jan 14, 2013 9:58 pm

Hey,
working with really big textures (8000x24000) tremendeosly slows down working with Indigo in C4D.
Could you please implement some sort of "activate/deactivate material preview render" checkbox somewhere?
The auto refresh of these indigo materials lasts way too long...
is something possible?
Or might be a way linking to an alternative, emtpy material preview scene?
Something has to happen here.

Thanks for your answer!


Cheers, David

Moin Zeiti

Maybe "xsTextureSwitch" is what you need.

Check your mail.

Thank you,

but this doesn't help.
What I want is to prevent Cindigo to render in the material editor, and in the attribute manager... the material previews.
Cheers, David

Sorry to interrupt with something different guys, but how about a per texture subsampling tag for preview ? 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 etc. Wouldn't that save performances while allowing for faster previews ? Plus, this doesn't exclude a switch.

I presume that simply the export to the material preview scene takes too much time, so I would prefer to interrupt that.

Simply adding a 4th setting for preview quality:
- high
- medium
- low
- off

Should be the easiest way to implement that :)

Oh, there's already a quality setting, fair enough :)

it is even to define per material, so the heavy guys can be set calm that way ;)

Great. I just realised that the 8k square PNG I rendered had a weight of 150MB (it's noisy), that may be one of the reason why I don't like texels much.

Loaded into Indigo it should even take 183,1MB, since textures get loaded as raw pixel data 8)
