Zippo is a tool for speeding up Lighting. It lives in the Lighting Tab of the Toolbar, and has the following functions:

  • small images: uses lower rez versions of texture images, speeds up viewport loading
  • Simplify buttons for subsurf and child particles (same as the scene ones)
  • restore local resolution in case low rez images are saved in the file.
  • switching the active renderlayer
  • Enable and create a simple material override for the active layer
