- The OpenGL plant preview window here…can only go so far to display materials accurately.…Eventually you'll need to an actual test render…to see what your materials really look like.…To do that,…we can click on the camera icon here.…And it'll render through once,…and we'll get a popup dialogue saying…Gamma correction is currently enabled and has been applied.…You can access the settings from Post Render Options.…That's fine.…We don't really need to be notified of this…every single time we do a render,…so let's turn Don't show again on,…and then click Okay.…
Now we get the Post Render Options dialogue.…And here's where we can do things like change the exposure,…we can see a preview of that here.…The only thing we really want to do is just…make sure that Natural film response is disabled,…because when it's on it sort of…washes out the shot a bit.…We don't really want to see this…Post Render Options dialogue show up…every time we do a test render.…To avoid it popping up, we can turn…Don't show when render completes on,…
