Hints and tips

The checking process time depends on the scene settings and on the files size.

When you go through the process, RANCHecker for Blender will:

  1. Pack your textures into the .blend file
  2. Check your render settings
  3. Change some settings for optimization
  4. Save a new scene and the needed assets into a temporary folder
  5. Archive this folder into a .vub file
  6. Reload your original scene

Thus, if your scene takes time to save/load, it will also increase the time for RANCHecker to do all this checking/archiving process.
