Flags in the Render Settings requestor that allow functions to be temporarily or permanently turned off or on prior to rendering. This allows a gas to be created and tested, then temporarily turned off to speed up test renders of other items. It may also cause some small speed increase to turn off functions you know you won't be using. If you know you won't be using Flares, Fountains, Gases, Shadows, or Transparency, you might consider turning them off. (NOTE: a lot of weird rendering problems can be caused by failing to remember to turn certain permissions ON. Gases, for example, need Phong Shading, Transparency, and Gases turned ON.)
