Full-Screen Mode

The Full Screen Mode is a presentation mode that lets you display images or animations in full-screen mode. All Cinema 4D windows and Managers will be hidden and the images/animation will be displayed in front of a black background.

For animations, an interface will be displayed at the bottom of the screen with which you can control the animation. This interface will fade out and will be re-activated by the next mouse movement. Pressing the space bar on your keyboard will stop/start the animation.

Press the ESC on your keyboard or click on the cross button at the top right to quit Full Screen Mode.

Display Navigator/Histogram

Lets you enable / disable the Navigator/Histogram display.

Show Pixel Aspect

It may occur that you have to render images with an aspect ratio different from the normal ratio. Enabling this option lets you distort the image in the Picture Viewer as you want it to look for final output. For newly rendered images the Pixel Aspect will be displayed in the Information tab’s Pixel Aspect setting. Otherwise you can enter a value manually.

Show Title Safe
Show Action Safe

Enables/disables the display for these frames. Their size can be modified using the corresponding settings in the Information tab.

Show Color Profile

If the image loaded into the Picture Viewer contains a color profile, enabling this option will ensure that it is evaluated correctly. Otherwise sRGB will be used.

Show Rendering

Since you can browse the list of images or even load new images while a render process is running, enabling this option will display the image currently being rendered in the preview window.

Render Output

Assuming you have several images open, Cinema 4D needs to know where the newly rendered image should be displayed. This is done using this option.
