Connecting the 3D Model to the Renderer

At last, to render a 3D model using Autodesk Maya, you must connect the element node containing the 3D model to a Maya Batch Render node, which will process the 3D model through Maya and take the rendered image to composite it in the scene. This will allow you to view the 3D model as rendered by Autodesk Maya in both the final rendered image and in the Render Preview mode of the Camera view.

TIP: When rendering using a 3D renderer, it is recommended to start Harmony from a command line terminal and to display the Message Log view in your workspace. This will allow you to see the information Harmony outputs about the rendering process, which could be useful to debug the process if any problem occurs.
