So I'm new here as you have figured out and the latest version is my first.  This is also my very first 3d fractal software.  Anyway I'm working on a nice video and I was wondering how to increase the draw distance?  What setting is it?  For example in my animation, I will come around a bend and the background will slowly appear and it looks very choppy.  Is there anyway to increase the draw so it's already there?  I notice a lot of other videos that seem to not have this problem and the geometry is already loaded.  And in case some of you may ask, my system is as follows:

Windows 7 Pro x64
Intel Core i7 870
8GB ram
nVidia GTX 260

If I understand what you are asking I think you want the Far Plane setting that is available in the little pop-down menu that is part of the NAV. You access this menu by the little dark grey arrows on the bottom right of the nav.

Yes, increase the farplane value in the low extendable navi panel, you can also increase the depth fog to make the background parts vanish smoother, if used as a feature.

Thanks for the help guys.  I did already have far plane set to 100.  How much higher can I go on this setting?  And I will have to adjust the fog a bit more to see what happens.

No problem with higher values like 1000 or more, it was on older program versions that this slowed down render time very much, not that much in recent versions.
