render settings

(Formerly Render Globals.) Attributes that affect all rendering tasks in a scene or layer (for example, how renders display, what format they are in, and whether or not shadows or other rendering components are included).

Render settings can be set in the Render Settings window, which consolidates render settings for the hardware renderer, the mental ray for Maya renderer, and the Maya software renderer.

In other software packages, known as render scene, render setup or ROP settings.
