Basics of Rendering

While the final goal is to create a photorealistic, presentation-quality image that illustrates your vision, you create many renderings before you reach that goal.

At a basic level, you can use the RENDER command to render your model without applying any materials, adding any lights, or setting up a scene. When you render a new model, the renderer automatically uses a virtual “over-the-shoulder” distant light. You cannot move or adjust this light.
