V2 Tutorials Animated Snippets #options

Enabling Hardware Acceleration can drastically increase reaction of Render Dialog Window while rendering an image and applying post-process effects like bloom, temperature adjust, and vignette.
However, it does not work on all systems, so if you experience strange black lines or strange appearance of the image in your render window, it could be that hardware acceleration is not right for your machine. If you need to disable it, here is how.
To begin using it, try choosing "Any Available Device".

Twilight Render provides a Diagnostics Tool for seeing how many lights you have in your scene, what type of materials, and what size texture images are.
If you want to quickly see if there are any textures in your file which are too large, try the Diagnostics Tool. #diagnostics

The Log File will tell you if something is going wrong. If nothing is going wrong, it will just list the time required to process the geometry of the scene for a rendering.
Open the log file before you render if you are experiencing issues with crashing or blank screens when rendering. #log #logfile
