Quick Render (hereafter 'QR') is a workflow plugin intended to speed up test renders of a complex image. Say you have a scene which uses features such as sub-polygon displacement, global illumination, ambient occlusion, large bitmaps, the hair module, and blurry reflections. On the average machine, that may take quite some time to render, which is annoying when doing test renders. Sometimes you don't want to see all of those effects when testing something, but unless you turn them off in the render settings (and then remember to turn them back on again when you want them) your test renders can be very slow.
Important: QuickRender ONLY works with the standard renderer in Cinema 4D. It does not work with Redshift or third-party render engines.
QuickRender is compatible with the following versions of Cinema 4D:
|Cinema 4D version||Compatible?|
|R20, R21||Yes, but requires the INSYDIUM Bridge plugin|
Note - there are separate downloads for R23/S24, R25/S26, R2023 and R2024- make sure you download the correct file!
The user interface is quite busy but all the options are covered in the accompanying manual:
