[Solved] Is there a way to keep images loaded when rendering.

Hi guys.

I’m currently rendering a scene with really low quality settings. Set super low so I can see if the animation works ok.

My rendering time is around 6 seconds a frame. Almost all of this time is Loading something.jpg.

Is there a way to keep these loaded

In cycles (dunno if BI is the same), the the render tab/performance - check Persistent Images. Actually caught me out the opposite way when I was tweaking the images and couldn’t figure out why the render didn’t change.

Awesome I knew I’d seen something like that but I was looking in the preferences. Its reduced my render time from almost 7 seconds to under 0.2 per frame when rendering a low quality version.

Thanks a lot

Thats a cool tip!
