You can use the presets here, but installing Custom Actions allows you to have easy access to RenderThrottle.

  1. Double-click !RenderThrottle 3Delight !Install Actions Script
  2. You will see new icons in the Render menu and Main ToolBar.

RenderThrottle3Delight allows you to customize the 4 presets using the options UI. Simply make your changes, then press Save.

Advanced: The presets are saved as json files in the Render Presets directory where the scripts are found. Feel free to share these.

Restore Defaults

Restore Defaults will remove your custom preset and revert to the original.

Apply

Apply will apply the current preset to the scene, meaning this will change the current render resolution, etc. This is useful for when you want to render a sequence of frames.

Supported Versions

Troubleshooting

Install actions does not work

RT is a plugin and as such needs to be installed for each version of DS that you are running

Where are the toolbar buttons?

If the install runs successfully and the RT actions appear in the Render menu, make sure you toolbar is not hidden:
