The Rendering preference panel lets you set preferences pertaining to rendering.


  • On render completion: This popup lets you choose what action is taken when a rendering completes. Here is a list of the settings with a description of each:
    • Do nothing: There is notification when the rendering completes. This is the default setting for this preference.
    • Beep: Terragen will beep when a rendering has completed.
    • Bounce Dock icon (Mac only): Terragen will bounce its icon in the Dock when rendering has completed. If you have Terragen in front when the render completes you will need to click on the Dock icon to stop it bouncing, otherwise the bouncing will stop automatically when you bring Terragen forward.
  • Stop screensaver and sleep while rendering: Checking this setting will prevent your screensaver from activating or the system from sleeping while Terragen is rendering. Some screensavers can consume a lot of processor power themselves (the SETI one being a good example) and this can slow rendering down. The default for this setting is unchecked.
