Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Render Settings window, part of Maya Essentials 6: Lights and Rendering.
Let's first take a look at the Render Settings window.…This is kind of the Grand Central Station of rendering.…All of your rendering parameters are included in this window.…So we can get to it in one of two places.…We can go to Window > Rendering Editors > Render Settings or you can press this…little icon here and that's usually how I get into the window.…Now once we're in the Render Settings window, you'll see that we have two…options up here, which layer are we rendering and we'll get into the…Render Layers in a bit.…
We can also choose which renderer we're using.…So this is a pulldown list of all the different renderers.…We're going to stick with Maya Software for now, which is the default, and down…here we're going to have a number of different tabs.…Now this may change depending upon which renderer you have selected.…So for example, if I select the Maya Hardware renderer, this will change.…If I select mental ray, it will change again.…So each renderer has its own set of tabs.…But every single renderer has this common tab and we're going to go through that right now.…
