Hi, I recently obtained this program for use with 3D art, as it is a hobby of mine. However, I’m having trouble with exporting the k3d files as something more universal, e.g. jpegs, gifs, etc. Could I please get some clarification and/or help on this?
Thanks

Your .k3d files are descriptions of your three-dimensional scene, they include (among other things) all of the sources and modifiers that you add using the Create menu.
To create a two-dimensional image of your three-dimensional scene, you \"Render\" it, using one of several types of Render Engine.
To save a copy of the Viewport contents, use the Render > Viewport Frame menu. This will save a file in PNM format, that can be opened in paint programs such as the GIMP.
To save photorealistic images with full lighting and shading, K-3D defaults to use the Aqsis RenderMan Render Engine. Use the Render > Preview menu, accept the defaults, and - assuming you have Aqsis installed - you will see a rendered image in a separate window.
Use Render > Frame to save a rendered image, which in the case of most RenderMan engines will be a TIFF image.
