The Render Engine Tab
The Viewing Apps Tab
The first section of this tab contains the Render View option for selecting the window (and application) in which image layers will be displayed on screen during rendering. See Image Layers (AOVs). It can be either the Maya Render View, 3Delight Display or Custom Frame Buffer. When the latter is selected, the render view used for rendering is specified through the
3delight.config file. 3Delight Display is used by default.

3deliht.config file controls which render view is used when Render View is set to Custom Frame Buffer:
# default framebuffer is the i-display application. /displaytype/framebuffer idisplay
