Basically, rendering is giving the computer time to mathematically compute the results of all the instructions you've given it (by design or unknowingly!)

Various operations like import media transcoding and processing all the transparency layers in an image or footage stack require a LOT of high speed calculation operations.

Rendering is the machine processing that type stuff and repacking complex instructions with simpler and cleaner ones that your machine can process efficiently.

My 2 bit definition anyway.

I'm sure the actual engineers who might be here will weigh in if I'm too far off target here.

(BTW, good on you for asking the question!
"No questions = no learning." would be a really good sig line.
