Render Settings

Render Settings are various options and parameters required for a renderer to be invoked and produce outputs, such as an image. Determining which values to set is usually a compromise between the desired output features, such as the image resolution or the perceived fidelity of a light simulation, and the speed at which the output can be produced by the renderer.

In some Omniverse Apps such as Omniverse USD Composer or Omniverse Code, a few Extensions are installed by default which give access to render settings.

Render Settings Panel Extension


The omni.rtx.window.settings Extension offers a UI for editing render settings by building a Render Settings panel. It also builds the API for rendering extensions to register their settings, for example, the omni.rtx.settings.core extension registers the Omniverse RTX Renderer’s render settings, and omni.iray.settings.core registers RTX – Accurate (Iray)’s render settings.

In some Omniverse Apps such as Omniverse USD Composer 2022.1.0 for example, those extensions are installed by default and the panel is accessible under Window > Rendering > Render Settings.

Render Settings Presets


Saving the render settings to a file can be useful for sharing or re-using them. In the top-right side of the Render Settings panel, you can access the Save, Load, or Reset functions.

You can save the settings file to a location, load a file from a location, or simply reset the settings to their default values.


All non-persistent or non-transient render settings are saved in the scene unless a setting’s value equals its default value, in which case the default value for the setting is applied.
