I understand the goal to keep the Enscape UI so simple like possible. It makes the first start easy and it's great for light users. But heavy users run against the limits and spend a lot of time to find work around. So, I would be very glad to get an expert option section. It could be a simple table like known for example from Octane - see screenshot. This expert options would allow to let the user experience grow over the time. It would allow to adapt Enscape to the need of specific projects and the used hardware. For example there could be options for:
* far/near clipping planes
* max number of lights
* how much polygons are shown at mirros
* how much details like textures and lighting are shown at mirrors
* keep all emitters active and not faded of by distance or better control of the fade distance
* disable preview thumbnails
* set animation duration between saved views
* higher output resolutions
I suppose so the power users will have a lot of ideas what could be at this section. I see the problem that the current automatics can't know the need of an user. Some prefer fastest speed, other users need best quality. Some user need to save VRAM, other user see no problem to use 10GB. Also users could set critical options, option which can cause a crash or freeze, for example by using to much memory.
OK, we can edit option files, but it's not comfortable and new installations reset this files.
From Octane I know that there are a lot of users how like to use a render engine like a pilot in the cockpit - dozen of little options allow to get the max fine adjusted power.
Also this section could be used for testing new features without to change the UI.
I hope the team will go this step and present this way for the power users.
