    i think you can only pause when rendering an animation, and it will only pause after completing the current frame.

    Only Scanline Renderer allows you to pause the process. If you're using VRay or other engine, you won't be able to pause it.

    For what it's worth, Final Render let's you pause mid-render.

    Hi,

    If this is an emergency (pressed cancel by accident, or like in my case I wanted to stop so I could export the file quickly to a thumb drive) you can save what you have. Then when you're ready to restart put 100% black planes in front of the camera covering the part that has already been rendered. When it starts up again the black areas will take no time to render then when the uncovered parts render you can save the file and splice it to the file you had saved before. Necessity is the mother...................
