FRED Preference and Ray Buffer Optimization

When FRED is installed on a computer for the first time, the default preference settings will not be optimized to leverage the resources available on the machine.  Rather, the default preference settings are deliberately chosen for program stability.  This knowledge base article discusses the various Preference settings that you should visit after installing FRED to optimize the GUI experience and raytracing/analyses performance.  Included in this article is a detailed discussion of the Ray Buffer preferences.

It is recommended that you start FRED, make the changes described in this document, then close FRED.  This process ensures that the changes made to the FRED installation are saved to the registry.
