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


  • On render completion: This popup lets you choose what action is taken when a render completes. Here is a list of the settings with a description of each:
    • Do nothing: No action is taken when the rendering completes. This is the default setting for this preference.
    • Beep: TG3 will beep when a rendering has completed.
    • Bounce Dock icon (Mac only): TG3 will bounce its icon in the Dock when rendering has completed. If you have TG3 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 TG3 forward.
  • Stop screensaver and sleep while rendering: Checking this setting will prevent your screensaver from activating or the system from sleeping while TG3 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.
  • Automatically save all renders: If this is checked TG3 will automatically save all renders. By default renders will be saved in a "Terragen 3" folder in your Documents folder. You can change this save location by changing the "Automatic render output" path in the Customise Default Paths section of the File Saving preferences panel. The automatic render output folder can be opened from the File menu using the "Explore Automatic Render Output Files" item on Windows or the "Reveal Automatic Render Output Files" item on OS X.
    The renders are saved with the format specified by the "Render save format" setting in the File Saving panel.
