Render videos

Modified on Mon, 17 Oct 2022 at 12:40 PM

You can render your camera animation into a video or image sequence. This article shows you how to customize your render video settings. 


Export Settings

This section allows you to select the format of the render output and select from a list of common presets. The supported formats are:

  • WEBM video
  • PNG image sequence
  • BMP image sequence
  • TIFF image sequence
  • JPEG image sequence

For beginners, we recommend using presets.

Basic Video Settings

Here you can configure the resolution of the output video or image sequence. The maximum value is 4096 for both dimensions.

Bitrate Settings

Bitrate is the amount of data in a video signal measured in bits per second. Generally speaking, higher bitrates produce better quality videos but also larger files.

Bitrate encoding specifies the encoding method to use:

  • VBR, 1 pass (Variable Bit Rate): VBR dynamically adjusts bitrate based on the complexity of the video signal while trying to reach the specified target bitrate (measured in megabits per second) on average.
  • CQ (Constant Quality): The user specifies a quality value, and the encoder allocates bits as needed to achieve the given quality. This ensures a constant perceptual quality throughout. The disadvantage of this encoding method is that the average bitrate (and hence file size) will not be known in advance. Thus, it takes trial and error to reach a certain average bitrate.

Point Count Settings

VRAM usage [GB]: This parameter controls the number of points rendered in each frame. Increase the value to render more points and thus decrease the perception of point loading in the rendered video. Select the desired preset or manually adjust the ruler.


You can select the overlays that you want to have displayed in your video. By default, scene settings are used. Customize this according to your preferences.
