I’d never noticed the change to pause… and no, it’s not an animation. Breaking frames I could do, but this was a single frame. It’s woodlands with sun, GI and raytracing. I like the look, understand it will take a long time, I’d just like the capacity to manage when I have full access to my system.
I’ll have to look for the pause button and see if that’s what I wanted… thanks for the ‘heads up’!
You must use the Batch renderer to use the pause function, and it can pause renders of still images. Whatever buckets aren’t done rendering when you pause are the first ones completed when you resume the render. It can take a little bit to close the file, so give Carrara some time to do it and don’t assume it has hung up.
