Preview Window


FumeFX’ Preview Window is an incredibly helpful and timesaving part of the interface.  It is an interactive window that displays a high quality draft of your simulation results; this means that you can gauge the effect of your adjustments without having to repeatedly stop and render.  Key features of the Preview Window are its scalable dimensions, interactive auto-refresh, GPU acceleration and channel display.


You can open the Preview Window at any time from the Preview icons in either the FumeFX UI dialog or Status Window.  Once opened, you can position the window anywhere on the screen, and scale its size by clicking and dragging on any corner.



Note: If you experience problems with GPU mode, please make sure that you are using the latest graphic card drivers. For Linux, it is important that the video card drivers support OpenGL 4.2.
