Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting Render options, part of VUE: Animating a Landscape.
- [Voiceover] Our render preview looks pretty good.…Now let's set up a production rendering.…I'll hide the timeline,…just click on the clapboard icon,…and go back to our four view port layout,…double-click on the top view,…and I'm back at my four view ports.…The render options can be accessed through the menus,…Render, Render Option,…or also from the control bar on the far-right,…the camera icon, right-click to access the render options.…We'll set up our own custom settings.…In the preset render quality section,…choose User Settings.…
We're going to render to the screen…for just testing purposes.…We do want to render everything.…Over in the render quality section,…we'll make a few changes.…To speed up the rendering, we'll disable blurred reflections…and blurred transparency,…and also disable depth of field,…because that really slows things down too.…In the advance effects quality area,…we have a slider which allows us…to go from faster to better.…If we just use this slider to control the quality,…then we would probably see some flickering…

Realistic skies and lighting are achieved with the VUE photometric spectral atmosphere model. This course covers adding animation to plants, water, and clouds with procedural wind effects. Aaron also shows how to create camera movement by employing the Timeline's intuitive tools, including animation and curve editing. Rendering many animation frames poses challenges not experienced with still image rendering, and so the course concludes with key strategies for optimizing the balance between image quality and rendering time.
