Lemma 36.4.5. Let $f : X \to S$ be a quasi-separated and quasi-compact morphism of schemes. Then $Rf_* : D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ X) \to D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ S)$ commutes with direct sums.

**Proof.**
Let $E_ i$ be a family of objects of $D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ X)$ and set $E = \bigoplus E_ i$. We want to show that the map

is an isomorphism. We will show it induces an isomorphism on cohomology sheaves in degree $0$ which will imply the lemma. Choose an integer $N$ as in Lemma 36.4.1. Then $R^0f_*E = R^0f_*\tau _{\geq -N}E$ and $R^0f_*E_ i = R^0f_*\tau _{\geq -N}E_ i$ by the lemma cited. Observe that $\tau _{\geq -N}E = \bigoplus \tau _{\geq -N}E_ i$. Thus we may assume all of the $E_ i$ have vanishing cohomology sheaves in degrees $< -N$. Next we use the spectral sequences

(Derived Categories, Lemma 13.21.3) to reduce to the case of a direct sum of quasi-coherent sheaves. This case is handled by Cohomology of Schemes, Lemma 30.6.1. $\square$
