Chapter 14. 3D Layers > Previewing 3D

Previewing 3D

Draft 3D disables lights and shadows as well as blur caused by camera depth-of-field settings. As you've made your way through this book, you've encountered several ways of reducing a composition's preview quality so that you can increase rendering speed. The increased processing demands of 3D compositing will make you appreciate this trade-off even more.

To enable or disable Draft 3D mode:

  • In the Timeline window, select the Draft 3D mode button (Figure 14.76).

    Figure 14.76. In the Timeline window, select the Draft 3D mode button.


    The image in the Composition window no longer previews 3D lights, shadows, or depth-of-field blur. Click the button again to deselect it and turn off Draft 3D (Figure 14.77 and Figure 14.78).

    Figure 14.77. When Draft 3D mode is off, the Composition window displays lights, shadows, and depth-of-field blur.


    Figure 14.78. With Draft 3D mode on, the Composition window doesn't preview lights, shadows, or depth-of-field blur.
