Poser Software the Technical Stuff - 2
Rendering is a word that you will hear a lot in the 3D art world. Basically, it is a computer process that gives you a 2D representation of your 3D scene or animation. When you create your scene or animation in Poser, every detail is saved in computer lingo. When you render, the computer performs calculations which result in a 2D picture or animation. You have four rendering methods in Poser. The first is a preview render. Poser can render the scene in your preview window at any time while you work on it to give you an idea of the finished product. You can render the whole scene or select part of the scene to render. Poser also allows you to compare two renders side-by-side in the preview window with a slider bar control. The final render will be a much better quality image and therefore take more time. To render an animation for a movie takes a very long time. The newest render engine in Poser is called FireFly and gives the best results. If you have been using previous versions of Poser and want that "classic Poser look" to your render, you can still use the Poser 4 Render Engine. There is also a Sketch Designer Render Engine which works much like the art media filters in Adobe R PhotoshopR to give your scene a hand drawn or hand painted appearance.
