What is a 3D Rendering?
The term "rendering" is actually an old one, it just became
more prevalent when 3D came out. A rendering is typically
a picture or painting created to represent something, like
a building. A 3D Rendering is simply an image that happens
to have been created by a 3D Artist on a computer.
Renderings are generated from 3D
Scenes and the placement
of 3D Cameras. The process
of setting them up bears very little resemblance to the
old hand painted ways.
Each rendering can be generated to a difference size,
where the term "high-resolution" comes
into play. The 3D artist sets the size for the rendering
and the computer processes it out, which could take minutes
or hours. The larger the rendering, the longer the time
needed to process.
