3D views can contain many layers, and rendering some layers can be quite demanding on your computer's resources. If you find that rendering a particular large or complex data layer causes navigation in ArcScene to be sluggish, you can set it to display only when navigation has ceased. Allowing a simpler layer to be rendered during navigation can provide landmarks to allow you to navigate accurately while the complex layer is not visible.
This functionality is not currently available in ArcGlobe, although you can set layer visibility by distance as an alternative performance optimization.
To access layer rendering options, use the Layer Properties dialog box. See the related links below on steps to perform these simple time-saving configurations to improve your performance experience.
