The stock gallery is full of what is known as Renders
You may be asking yourself just what a Render is.
Under the Stock and Resources Category is the following description.Resources & Stock>Stock Images>3D & Renders.
"Computer generated stock images"
In terms of the Stock and Resources gallery, directly refers to the "rendering" of 3d digital work with the use of a render engine. Below is a little more info!From the prepared 3D scene,rendering is the final process of creating the actual 2D image. A great example of this process can be taking a photo or filming the scene after the setup is finished in real life. Several different, and often specialized, rendering methods have been developed. These range from the distinctly non-realistic wireframe rendering through polygon-based rendering, to more advanced techniques such as: scanline rendering, ray tracing, or radiosity. Rendering may take from fractions of a second to days for a single image/frame. In general, different methods are better suited for either photo-realistic rendering, or real-time rendering.
In simple terms; Renders are 'Flat' Versions of 3D models ready to use!
Some examples of what we mean are below;
These are perfect and stay true to what we love seeing in this category!
However, yes, there is a however..
What we don't love to see is the images of Anime characters and Actors with a transparent background etc floating around.These are generally all copyrighted and out shine the true meaning of what this category is!
PLEASE report them if you see them!
They are copyright violations and we need as many people to be aware of this and report these images straight away! It literally takes 30 seconds.
so to summarise...Renders are computer generated images of 2D versions from a prepared 3D scene ready to use by artists!Think back to the example of taking a photo!
We hope this article has cleared your mind on this topic. Please spread the word so people can have a better understanding of this subject!
