Media and Entertainment Applications Rendering programs are generally used to create three-dimensional models, to be placed in highly detailed three-dimensional settings/environments. These models are usually interactive and easily navigable. Engineers, architects, and visual artists in various industries use rendering programs to create realistic and in-depth demonstrations of models for presentation. While some rendering programs might
