As we’ve mentioned elsewhere in this manual, rendering is the act of taking a virtual photograph of your scene. You can do this at any time using any available default view or custom camera. When rendering, DAZ Studio takes everything in your scene into account, including:

  • locations of figures and objects
  • figure poses
  • light locations, types, and settings such as type, color, intensity, location, rotation, etc.
  • surface settings including all colors and maps
  • camera location and settings
  • render settings
