Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering animation, part of Blender Essential Training.
Up until this point, we've been rendering individual images in Blender, but we…can also render animation.…So let's take a look at how to do this.…I have a scene already set up with animation.…Now we haven't really gone through animation at this point, but we're just…going to render it, so let's take a look at this scene.…We have a pool ball that's rolling into the scene.…So, if I want to, I can left click on my timeline and scrub it or if I want to…play it, I can hit this Play button down here and we can see a quick preview of the scene.…
Now, I'm going to go ahead and hit Stop, and let's go ahead and render this.…Now, if we want, we can just hit this button that says Render Animation, but…we really don't have everything set up to render to the proper place and in the proper format.…So let's go ahead and do that first.…So, if we scroll down here to our Dimensions, we can see we have a number…of different options.…I'm going to go ahead and select HDTV 72p, and this will render a slightly…smaller file so that it will render quicker for this demonstration.…
