Frequently Asked Questions

What can be loaded into Render?

You can load up to four audio Bible versions into Render to be used as references for the translation. We have many languages and versions available and can work with you on what will be best for your project.

How long does it take to set up a project?

If all references are available, project setup needs to start ten weeks before the start date. If there is no audio recording for one of the references, it can take up to five additional months to record it.

Can I add another reference after the project has started?

In most cases, when an audio reference is not available at the time of your project launch, the Render team can add it when it becomes available.

Is internet needed to use Render?

For most of your project, you will not need internet as you can sync and share files among the team over a Local Area Network (LAN) or a USB drive. You will need internet initially to download the Render software on all project computers. We recommend doing an internet sync periodically to back up your files.

What type of technical support is available?

The Render team will provide technical support for projects Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm Mountain Standard Time (UTC -07:00). However, if a technical issue is preventing the team from working, we will assist outside of regular business hours.

When can the audio files be used?

The audio recordings produced during the Render project are intended to be the permanent recordings of the translation. The audio can be exported out of the software at any point to be used by the community immediately.
Once the scope is completed, the Render team will edit the audio for spacing, volume consistency, and removal of extraneous background noise. The Render team will send the edited audio back to you as soon as possible.

How can the audio files be used?

The Render team can offer assistance in distribution of the completed audio files. This includes, but is not limited to, SD cards, mp3 players, other audio devices, and online streaming.

How is good audio quality achieved?

The Render team will listen to the initial and ongoing audio drafts produced to check for sound quality and will send feedback on how to improve recording quality if needed.
