background display in 3d window / Render Safe Frame

RandyC

3d window shows two grey bands and a white center in the background
resizing window makes bands get bigger , 3d image also crosses the bands

2nd Arch 18 file running with same settings (at the same time) does not show this behavior.

All window settings appear to be identical


Does anybody know of a command that produces this ?
The banding is now on my template file I would like to know how to
remove it without redoing my entire template.

Thanks, Randy

You say 'offensive', I say 'delightful'...

This is a new option in 18 related to rendering that somehow got turned on for the project you're working on. The US template default is 'off'.

It's called the "Render Safe Frame" which allows you to see what part of the 3D window will be rendered. We've never been able to see that before...resulting in trial and error renders, or post-render cropping in an editor. So, it's a great thing! Except for when you don't want to see it, like now. 😉

There's an on/off button in the "3D Visualization" toolbar... or menu: Document > Creative Imagery > Render Safe Frame

There is also a checkbox for the same feature in the Size panel of the Rendering Settings dialog. So, 3 places where it can be turned on/off... and the setting is memorized as part of views AFAIK.
