Default Application Renderer

Clarisse comes with two built-in renderers: Clarisse and Angie. This list can be eventually complemented by any 3rd party renderers supporting Clarisse. You can set the default renderer of the Clarisse using the application preferences. When setting the default renderer, Clarisse makes sure to properly set up the default scene, image layers and 3D View according to the renderer of your choice. This way you need to manually set anything.


To choose the default application renderer, go to Edit > Preferences… Under the Rendering category, you'll find the Default Renderer setting. Simply select the default renderer of your choice.


Setting the default renderer of the application doesn't prevent you from using other renderers in the application. It's simply a convenient feature setting things up automatically for you.

3D View Renderer

By default, the 3D View is configured to use the default renderer set in the application preferences to render the scene. It is possible to choose an alternate renderer in the 3D View Options. In the Rendering category you will find the setting Renderer which is set to Use Application Preferences. Simply change it to the renderer you wish to use.


Setting a renderer in the 3D View Options, automatically populates the 3D View toolbar and option with the specific settings of the selected renderer. Please refer to the documentation of the selected renderer for more information.
