How to Speed Up Redshift Material Previews in Cinema 4D

Shawn Astrom shows a little tip for how to speed up Redshift material previews in Cinema 4D by dropping resolution.

If you’ve ever noticed a slowdown with Redshift material previews and node interactivity in Cinema 4D, you’re likely, not alone. Material previews are pretty, handy, and often expected, but they come at a price, and that is computer resource overhead.

Here, Shawn Astrom shows a couple of tips for how to speed up Redshift material previews. You can improve material previews and node interactivity by changing your preview resolution to 64×64 for any Cinema 4D materials.

Shawn demonstrates how this helps and shows an example using Redshift’s newer nodes.
