Render preview (Shift+P) speedup

Post by solmax » Thu Jul 20, 2006 6:01 pm

Right now moving/resizing the preview render panel triggers a complete re-render. How about saving the already rendered image in a buffer, calculating the new area after move/resize and only render the new parts, which in mosst cases are much smaller than the whole preview area? In case you decrease the size of the panel, no rendering at all should be required.
