6. Demorender

Demorender is a free test render that helps you to check the correctness of the final image. Among this, demorender allows you to find out the exact render time and the cost of your project.
Result of demorender is a watermarked image with a resolution of 640 on the wide side (the image is rendered in the original resolution, but the result is a low-resolution image with watermarks).
In case of animation, only the first, middle and last frame of the sequence are rendered in demorender.
You can purchase the result of demorender and get an image without watermarks in the original resolution on your storage.
Note that only one demorender can be started at a time, the rest will be queued.
