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. The Maya Batch Render node will take the 3D model as its input, render it through Autodesk Maya, then composite the rendered image into the scene. The 3D model as rendered by Autodesk Maya will appear in both the final rendered image and in the Render Preview mode of the Camera view.

TIP When rendering using a 3D renderer, you can 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.
