Question about render thumbnail update in MAYA


I saw, doing one tutorial, that there is something like Render Thumbnail Update which could be turn on/off during work in MAYA to make hypershade faster. How to switch that option in MAYA? How to make it visible in Maya as buttons?

The mel commands you are looking for are:

renderThumbnailUpdate false;
renderThumbnailUpdate true;

To create shortcuts just open the script editor, paste each command in the mel tab, highlight the command and go File -> Save Script to Shelf.

PS. Make sure the shelf where you want the buttons to appear is active when saving the scripts in the script editor.
