Is there any difference between pre-rendering and rendering?
As far as I can tell nothing different happens. I'm curious why there is a choice - seems like there must be some distinction.
I'm using CS4 but I've meant to ask this question since AE7 - obviously it's not real pressing!
I guess I could also throw in "Make Movie" - seems like all 3 commands lead you to the Render Queue...and when you get there it's all the same choices, same settings and modules available...
nevermind - it was a dumb question. i know when / how to use pre-rendering - instead of trying to render a 100-layer comp, you pre-render and nest individual comps inside your final comp.
i was just curious why there are 3 menu choices that take you to the Render Queue...
Pre-render should set the output module to replace the comp with the rendered file.
