Prepare and complete image rendering processes

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver ICTGAM416, 'Prepare and complete image rendering processes'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Prepare and complete image rendering processes' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Analyse the rendering requirements

1.1 Identify the equipment and media required for the project

1.2 Identify the features of the rendering software packages used in the film and games industries

1.3 Analyse the design brief, or other reference sources, to plan and determine the rendering requirements

2. Select a suitable rendering application to achieve desired appearance

2.1 Select the rendering software with the capability to achieve the desired effects within the timeframe and budget

2.2 Confirm that the selection is according to the brief, system limitations and requirements

3. Prepare rendering application for desired outcome

3.1 Select and apply the appropriate image resolutions, image aspect ratio, and pixel ratio

3.2 Adjust the renderer attributes to obtain desired anti-aliasing

3.3 Adjust the renderer attributes to obtain other desired visual effects

4. Check the render integrity and quality

4.1 Refine the render integrity

4.2 Re-link any missing images and textures

4.3 Test the render times for optimising process

4.4 Test the alpha channels and opacity matts

4.5 Test the render layers and passes

5. Optimise the images for render processes

5.1 Complete pre-rendering optimisation tasks

5.2 Adjust and refine renderer attributes to optimise render times

5.3 Select the appropriate file format for output, according to the brief

5.4 Select the appropriate filenames and output destinations

6. Render the images and save files appropriately

6.1 Undertake the final rendering processes

6.2 Store or archive the files

6.3 Review the completed render to ensure compliance with the system and the brief

6.4 Confirm the rendering with the relevant personnel
