Does exporting a file also render it at the same time?

Do I need to render a project and then export it, or does exporting it render it as well?

Yes!  There is preview rendering and output rendering.  They are actually separate.  The first make preview files to make editing go smoothly.  At output, the source files are read from scratch and rendered to the output specifications.

Hi hfeatherston,

Thanks for reaching out. When we export a file, it processes all the effects applied and other edits made. The entire process of doing that generates the preview or renders the file. So, the answer to your question is yes.

Adding to what @whsprague said, sometimes while exporting the application is unable to read the source file and gives an error. This happens while the rendering is in progress.

Let us know if you have any other question.

Thanks,

Shivangi
