Rendering preferences


You can set the following preferences in the Rendering category of the Preferences window.


Preferred renderer

You can select your preferred renderer. This is the renderer that Maya resets to when you create a new scene (File > New Scene) or when you start Maya.

Render view image format

Select between 8-bit integer and 32-bit floating-point (HDR) image buffers in the Render View.

Select this option if you are using an output device that can display HDR color values, or if you want to apply color management inside the Render View window. For more information, see Displaying HDR images in the Render View.
