If this option is turned off, you will not be able to modify any of the values in this window.
The frame range setting affects all output drivers. Output drivers will not render outside their valid frame range, so if the two ranges overlap partially, only the overlapping range will be rendered. The Batch and Frame Dependency output drivers can also cause frames to be rendered outside this range.
Many output drivers have a resolution setting that can be scaled down to perform faster render tests. The scale factor is applied to all output drivers that output images. You can choose a preset resolution, or specify your own.
Allows you to specify the quality of the render. This setting provides a quick way to speed up render tests without modifying the renderer settings in the output driver. The three quality levels are low, medium and normal.
Frame by frame mode is great for interactive previews, while node by node is more efficient for overnight renders.
|Render All Bypassed/Locked Nodes|
If this option is turned on, the output driver acts as if the bypass or lock flags are turned off. This is useful for doing a clean re-render from scratch, if some branches were locked off for partial rendering of the network.
