Large Assemblies Traversing Components

Discussion created by Garrett Brooks on Dec 16, 2008
when rendering assemblies with 1000's of parts in PhotoWorks the progress window begins by "traversing component: part.sldprt" and moves through all of the parts which takes several minutes, and when it gets to the actual calculating indirect illumination and actual rendering may take less than 1 minute

But I believe PhotoView360 renders off of the preview data or tessellated data and begins rendering immediately.

Is there a way to prevent PhotoWorks from traversing the components every time and render of the tessellated data?
