Rendering Process Overview

An overview of the typical rendering process.

The Rendering environment helps you to visualize models and simulations in a realistic manner, and better illustrate your models, concepts, and data. The library provides a large selection of drag and drop materials and environments so you can quickly apply them to your models. You can also create custom materials and save them.

There are two render modes for interactively setting up and viewing your models:
  • Performance Render gives the best rendered performance and is best used for viewing animated simulation data.
  • Quality Render provides the most realistic representation of a model and is best used for static images and final presentations.

An example of a final rendering is shown below:
