This question already has an answer here:

Hi I'm using Blender on a Windows 7 computer, and I know it has way more features than what I normally do with it. So I was rendering an image, (not an animation) and I wanted to pause my rendering, close out blender, and then start it back up later. But I didn't know if such a feature existed. While I was rendering I went to the menu at the bottom of the window, clicked image, and these options popped up:


Edit Externally

Save a Copy

Save As Image F3

Save Image Alt S

Save All Images

Read Render Layers Ctrl R

Open Image Alt O

New Image Alt N

I clicked save all images and I was wondering, "did this solve my problem?" "By clicking that did all my rendered tiles save so I can just render the rest later?" "Where are my saved images located?" I had a lot of questions. Can I pause and resume rendering images?

  • $\begingroup$ Short answer: no. there is no way to pause a render part way through a frame. (Not sure why you'd even want to) $\endgroup$ – David Mar 27 '18 at 13:53
