The Render Panel contains all the viewport render settings.

Resources
Texture Quality Sets the quality of the textures rendered In the viewport, this can help improve the editor performance for users with weaker PC’s.

Grid
Distance Set the snapping distance when performing object moving with the grid enabled.

Shadows
Enable Point Light Shadows Enables Omni light shadows
Enable Spot Light Shadows Enables Spot light shadows
Directional Resolution Resolution of the Directional Shadow Map
Point Resolultion Resolution of the Point Light Shadow Cubemaps
Maximum Point Lights Sets the total number of point lights Bright Engine will calculate in each frame. The lights being used will be automatically selected based on distance to camera. Minimum value is 4 and maximum is 16. By increasing the maximum number of lights to be calculated per frame, increases accuracy at the cost of performance.
Spot Resolution Resolution of the Spot Light Shadow Maps
Maximum Spot Lights Sets the total number of spot lights Bright Engine will calculate in each frame. The lights being used will be automatically selected based on distance to camera. Minimum value is 4 and maximum is 16. By increasing the maximum number of lights to be calculated per frame, increases accuracy at the cost of performance.
Area Resolution Resolution of the Area Light Shadow Maps
Maximum Area Lights Sets the total number of point lights Bright Engine will calculate in each frame. The lights being used will be automatically selected based on distance to camera. Minimum value is 4 and maximum is 16. By increasing the maximum number of lights to be calculated per frame, increases accuracy at the cost of performance.
Debug Point Light Shadows Visually displays the Omni light shadow maps applied to the skybox.

Camera
OQ Polygon Threshold Sets the minimum polygon threshold requirement of a model to be included in the Occlusion Query Pass. Occlusion Query is an optimization technique that determines whether an object is hidden behind another object. If it is, then there is no point wasting processing power to render it since the camera can’t see it. With modern GPU’s rendering lots of Polygon’s is not a difficult task. However Low poly models can hurt performance due to OQ because the process of checking whether it is hidden is costlier than simply rendering the object anyway. Any object with less than 1000 polygons is worth excluding from the OQ pass however you can adjust this to a lower or greater value if you so wish.
OQ Radius Threshold Sets the minimum distance threshold to the camera of a model to be included in the Occlusion Query Pass. Models that are near the camera are most likely going to be visible to the camera and so performing an Occlusion Query check on these models is more a less a waste of resources. By increasing this value, models within this range will not be included in the Occlusion Query Pass. This is particularly useful for scenes with a high concentration of assets within a small space such as a bedroom.
Speed The cameras movement speed when moving around in the World Editor
Range The cameras Maximum Render Range
Field of View The camera Field of View angle
Method Sets the method used to calculate exposure based on the camera properties.
  • Manual
  • Automatic
Manual calculates exposure based on the exposure settings of the camera. Unless these values are manipulated by code, the exposure remains constant. To achieve the best possible results, it is recommended to follow the Sunny 16 rule.

Automatic exposure calculation calculates the average scene luminance to determine who bright or dark the scene is and adjusts the exposure accordingly to simulate the human eye adjusting to the level of light.
Aperture (f-stop) (Manual only) Sets the aperture of the camera in f-stops.
Shutter Time (1/s) (Manual only) Sets the shutter speed of the camera.
Sensitivity (ISO) (Manual only) Sets the sensitivity of the camera.
Min Exposure (Automatic only) Sets the minimum exposure of the camera to reduce extreme fluctuations. Note that by increasing the minimum exposure, the scene will become brighter.
Max Exposure (Automatic only) Sets the maximum exposure of the camera to reduce extreme fluctuations. Note that by decreasing the maximum exposure, the scene will become darker.
Compensation Adjusts the overall scene exposure value to increase or decrease brightness. Note that a camera should not rely on Compensation to achieve physically accurate results. This option should only be used to compensate for any post-processing effects such as tone mapping which darken the scene.
