What is video rendering? what is the purpose and what elements are involved in producing the final video product?
Video rendering is the process where a video file is finalized from different elements which include edited video files and special effects.
It needs a set of edited video elements, audio, files, digital animation clips, and effects. Normally, all of these materials, are included in video rendering. The final product is a blend of all these elements which are enhanced by several effects both audio and video in nature.
The process of video rendering begins with assembling video elements as well as the basic effects required in enhancing the final product. Before the main it is done, a pre-rendering method is first carried out. For this method, an outline is drawn and models are arranged so that they align with the video elements. Here also audio elements are also mixed in and gradually the models and outlines are improved on every pass until the video elements, audio elements, and special effects are accurately aligned. Once the video is ready for rendering, it will be handed over to the rendering software.
The software determines the shading, textures as well as the dimensions of the video elements, and the effects. This offers all the elements a united look and feel, and mixes them to achieve one visual image.
Before you can bring together animated objects and video clips together, first there must be video editing. This is important because the right sequence of scenes and clips must be arranged in a manner that makes sense in the storytelling aspect of the video product. Usually, the rendering software are designed with built-in capacity to texture, shade and light 3D or 2D shapes. Rendering drawings or 3D models come out in short or feature-length video files.
When it comes to rendering time, it can range from a couple of seconds to several weeks. At the end of the day, it all boils down to the elements being mixed or how large the video files are. A short video that requires minimal digital effects can be rendered in just a few minutes while a feature-length animated movie on the other hand can take up to several weeks. This is because of the complexity of the effects required and the 3D animation itself. Since video rendering requires a lot of processing power, not all computer systems can be effective video rendering machines.
