Feature or Plugin Request: Pause Render

Recommended Posts

It's not unusual for me to have to move layers up or down in the stack, but it currently renders for every move and can take a lot of time when dealing with large format images. Or I might also want to modify the transparency of multiple layers, or duplicate layers, etc. If there was a button that could just pause the rendering so I could make these changes without having to re-render for every change to get to where I really want it, that would save so much time. Thanks!

Paint.net 4 will have some neat new features for moving layers around. There are also a number of optimizations and performance improvements. I think these will solve the issues you have. Be patient :)

Rick's latest assessment was "When it's done," but it's in Alpha release now.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
