QUESTION
What do each of the 5 stars in Movie mode mean?

ANSWER



  • 1-star quality: Draft quality:
    Global Illumination and the Volume Clouds effect will not look right. Sky, sun and clouds will remain static.
  • 2-star quality: Good quality:
    Global Illumination and the Volume Clouds effect will not look right. Rendering with a Sun Study Effect requires 2 Star Quality (or better) to see the sun in motion.
  • 3-star quality: Production quality with 4 sub-samples:
    Fewer sub-samples per frame will result in lower quality anti-aliasing, shadows, depth of field, motion blur, leaves on trees/plants, hair/semi-transparent parts on the 3D people and volume clouds.
  • 4-star quality: Production quality with 8 sub-samples:
    Fewer sub-samples per frame will result in lower quality anti-aliasing, shadows, depth of field, motion blur, leaves on trees/plants, hair/semi-transparent parts on the 3D people and volume clouds.
  • 5-star quality: Production quality with 16 sub-samples:
    The best quality.

Quality rendering of clouds, moon and stars:
The clouds, moon and stars will render at a lower quality, even if you set Final output quality to 3 stars or more. To set the sky to the best possible render quality, please add a Cloud effect and turn on HQ Clouds in movie render (slow).
