Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Render settings for cycles, part of Blender Essential Training.
- Now let's take a look at the render settings for cycles.…Now these are somewhat similar to Blender's render settings…but they are different so let's just go over them…so that we understand them.…Now the first one is: where will the render display?…Will it display in a new window,…full-screen in the image editor,…or do you want to just keep it in the existing UI?…Now the feature set by default is set to supported.…Now we can set it to experimental,…what this does is it opens up additional features…that are in beta and some of these may or may not work…so if you want a completely solid experience here,…go ahead and click on supported.…
And then as we've seen before, we can change the device…from CPU to GPU.…Now below here we have dimensions,…and this is really the size of your rendered frame…so we can add in whatever size frame we want…and we have a number of different presets.…So if you wanted say, 720p we could do that…or we could go to 1080p.…This is also where we set our frame rate…and our aspect ratio.…Now under this we have metadata.…
