Option to turn off two-pass rendering

Post by Biscuit »

When comparing images is it extremely important that we can switch from one to the other immediately with nothing happening between the preview refreshes.
Currently XnViewMP forces two-pass rendering so when I switch from one image to the next, the preview changes to some low-resolution preview without color correction, and then a short time later changes again to the real preview.
Please add an option to disable this two-pass rendering, and keep the old preview in cache until the new preview is ready to be shown, then replace the image.

you can edit previewSize in [Viewer] section of xnview.ini

Code: Select all

previewSize=@Size(0 0)

Thank you for the reply.
My [Viewer] section has this option already:
prevSize=@Size(160 120)
Is prevSize what you meant? I set it to 0 0 and that seems to work.

Either way, it should be possible to do this via the UI with a simple checkbox.

Is adding such an option to the UI on your TODO list?

This is excellent, just what I wanted. Thank you for reaching out to me via e-mail to tell me about this. Is adding this to the GUI settings an option at this time? Editing the .ini solved it for me, but there are probably other people who would want to change this functionality.
