quick question, does the Chromanator demo have an expiration date? I mean do you have only so long to use it? I am not all set up to do any greenscreen-type filming as of now. Do I have to wait util I'm all set up with that before downloading and trying the demo? Thanx!

You are talking to a real idiot here (at least as far as this stuff is concerned). What is rendering? Thanx for not laughing at my dumb questions.

aaaahhhh don't worry we were all there at one stage...
Rendering is like saving.... so say when your happy with what you have in chromanato you click the Render Settings button and the you can choose what format you would like it in either Windows media (.AVI) or Quicktime (.mov) and then it will take time to render it the you can watch it either in Quicktime or Windows media whatever one you chose.

Rendering is actually not so much like saving. Rendering take all the effects and layers and such that you have modified, and finishes them. For instance, in Effects Lab, you are usually working with a preview of one half or one third of the final quality. When you render, however, the program does the final calculations to put everything in highest quality, so it is normally the last step of things. When you render to a movie, thats when it is like saving, because it renders each frame and assembles it into a movie.

YOU IDIOT! no im just messing
rendering is just exporting your final product with the key effect/animation/etc
and if you dont know what key effect is, its when you remove the green. haha.
i hope this helps
