The Image Window

The Image Window is automatically displayed when the rendered has completed scene generation, and when the noise generator computes a bitmap.

The popup menu

You can save the Image Window contents to a file, or copy the image to the Clipboard using the popup menu associated to the window.

Color inversion

Sometimes you'll find convenient to take a look at the negative of a generated image.

The status bar

The Image Window keeps an internal copy of the last rendered scene. When you move the mouse over the bitmap, the scene is used for calculating which point in the 3D scene your mouse is pointing to. The result of this query is shown in the status bar:

By default, only the 3D position and the bitmap coordinates are shown. If you need to know the normal vector at the point under the cursor, you can press the Ctrl key while moving the cursor.
