Accidentally closed render window!!!

PLEASE tell me, like poser, there is a way for me to retrieve a render after the render window was closed?

I woke this morning, saw it had rendered fine and in my daftness closed it instead of saving it...is there ANY WAY to get it back? I tired the "render editor"Button but the render I did over night is not in there....

  • Yes, you go to the File Menu and choose "Save Last Render...".  It's a life saver!

    THANK YOU!! I was dreading running that all night again :P

  • It is prob hiding in app data roaming or somewhere too

    I believe it will only be in the temp folder if the person actually hit cancel.

    In Windows it is located at:

    C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\DAZ 3D\Studio4\temp

    Yay! You just saved 36 hours of rendering for me :)

    See this is why Daz NEEDS a manual.  I didn't know anything about the "Save Last Render" option. I've lost countless hours rerendering stuff because of accidentally closing a finished render.

  • Luckier than me. I closed Daz's main window. Temp data gone. : ( And she was SOOOOOO pretty, too!

    Thanks, I didn't know this either. I have also lost countless renders because of accidentally closing the window.

    They really need an option ot save renders automatically.

    Window>Panes(Tabs)>Render Album, you set the maximum size and nmber it will save in the option menu (the lined button in the top corner, or right-click the tab). You can right-click on a thumbnail to actually save, otherwise they will be cleared on the next shutdown or restart - if you need to recover one after a crash it will be in the temp folder, in \RenderAlbumTmp. The main drawback is that they are jpgs, so you don't get and alpha channel.

    Whilst I might be tempted to agree, I have to ask: how much are you prepared to pay for it? How much are you prepared to pay for its upkeep. The software is free; this 'free' comes with a cost.

    And the forums are an excellent source of information.

    There is this one, but I hardly ever use it so I don't know how much/often it's being updated.
