Create Rendered Image

Use Document > Creative Imaging > PhotoRender Projection
Note: Rendering time varies depending on many factors, including size and complexity of the rendering parameters, and hardware capabilities.
Note: You must use the 2D Marquee option. It will always assume a rectangular shape (even if you draw a custom-shaped Marquee.
Once you have placed the Marquee, two Render Region commands are available (in the Document > Creative Imaging menu and as pop-up options of the Render button of the Render palette):
Render Marquee Region and Crop: With a Marquee placed, this is the default rendering command. This renders and outputs only the marquee region.
Render Marquee Region: Use this function if you only want to render a small part of the 3D window. It will render the scene as a whole, but only the marquee region is rendered in full; the rest of the scene is shown as transparent.
Note: If the Render Safe Frame mode is on (see below), then your Marquee will only have an effect to the extent that it falls within the Render Safe Frame. If Render Safe Frame is off, then you will render the Marquee area regardless.
Turn on this 3D view feature at Document > Creative Imaging > Render Safe Frame.
Note: The Render Safe Frame setting to OFF corresponds to Rendering Settings from ARCHICAD versions 17 and older. In this situation, the full content of the 3D window – even content that is not visible on screen – will be rendered, with its size determined by Render Size.
The CineRender engine in ARCHICAD does not support multi-pass or net render functions. If you want to continue working on your model with additional Cinema4D functions, use the Export to Cinema 4D command from the Render pop-up button of the PhotoRendering palette. This will export your model, surfaces and rendering settings.
Note: This color-depth feature is not available if the model picture is created using the Render Region & Crop command, which creates the image using only 8 bits per channel.
Click Resolve to bring up further information:
Click Cancel to proceed – the Preview and the 3D view will not be totally identical, because the Preview will show a “best match”.
Click Update 3D Window to modify the 3D view to match the view in the Photorendering Preview.
Click Render to continue the rendering process. CineRender will create a rendering using a “best match,” that is, the view axes will be modified as needed to achieve an axonometric view that the CineRender engine can handle. Thus, the final rendering will correspond to the Preview, but the 3D window remains unchanged.
Click Update 3D Window to modify the 3D view to match the view in the Photorendering Preview. (If you are not satisfied with this modified view, you can adjust it as needed.) The rendering will not take place until you issue the PhotoRender Projection command again.
Click Cancel to end the process without rendering.
