Render Distance in Options

Render Distance in the Settings.

Render Distance is an option that can be set from the Video menu in Settings.


Render Distance changes the number of Chunks that are visible from a distance at once. There are 2-7 possible settings for Render Distance:  

Minecraft Pocket Edition (Max):

  • 5 chunks
  • 8 chunks
  • 10 chunks
  • 12 chunks
  • 14 chunks
  • 18 chunks
  • 22 chunks

Windows 10 Edition Only (Max):

  • 5 Chunks
  • 8 Chunks
  • 16 Chunks
  • 32 Chunks
  • 40 Chunks
  • 48 Chunks
  • 52 Chunks
  • 60 Chunks


  • The fewer chunks that are included, the faster each frame can be rendered, resulting in a higher FPS and low lag.
  • After Update 1.2, the render disatance slider has been moved out from the 'Show Advanced Video Settings' box.
  • After Update 0.16.0, to change the Render Distance, the Player must check the 'Show Advanced Video Settings' box.
  • Before Update 0.8.0, the maximum render distance was very low, however, this has since been changed.
