View Full Version : Auto-Close option for render status panel

Simply put, add another checkbox alongside the "Auto Frame Advance" checkbox in the Render Options panel so that the render status panel will close automatically when it's done rendering.

This would be really handy when tweaking surfaces as you wouldn't have to close the render status panel each and every time you do an F9 preview... With the Auto-Close option checked, the renderer would just fire the frame into Image Viewer, and then return directly to Layout saving you a mouseclick/keypress each and every time.

Admittedly, it's a small time-saver, but if you're constantly doing previews, it adds up quickly. ;)

Yes, please! I've requested this earlier aswelll. It get's very irritating fast when you're doing testrenders.

This is one of those small things that would make a big difference. Its frustrating when this panel takes 2 to 3 seconds to close.

Excellent idea, one that would make life easier and which I always forget in my feature requests !
