    Default Drawing vs. Rendering: what's the difference?

    Can these two words be interchanged without consequence? I did a quick search and got too many different (conflicting) answers for my liking.

    Thanks in advance!

    Default Re: Drawing vs. Rendering: what's the difference?

    I suppose it depends on the context. A 3D modeler is going to have a different opinion than a 2D artist, and a computer artist is going to have a different opinion than somebody working in the real world. So if you're in the right context, I'm sure there's some slight difference between the two- and how that difference is defined might depend on the situation. But in most cases, you can probably just use them interchangeably.
