I feel that this tag is not needed. Whenever it has been used so far, it's also accompanied with the tag for the render engine. Such as . Shouldn't we just get rid of it? See for yourself:

    $\begingroup$ it can be useful.. say for discussing rendering techniques/theory etc.. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR May 23 '13 at 3:27
  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR good point. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Pendergast May 23 '13 at 3:30
  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR but I think that if a question has a rendering engine tag, that it shouldn't have the rendering tag. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Pendergast May 23 '13 at 3:34

We should keep the tag.

We should keep the rendering tag.

Although many questions regarding rendering are specific to a particular engine, there are still a good number of questions that might arise independent of the rendering engine, or questions that ask for comparisons between the different engines. Also, there are a number of features of the rendering process that are general enough that even if the user is working with one engine, the answers might still be useful in a different engine (such as speed/optimization questions).

    $\begingroup$ Also, since tag nesting is not currently supported, if I'm looking for wide-range questions on rendering, I wouldn't want to go through all tags, having one is helpful $\endgroup$ – JNF May 23 '13 at 21:37

We should keep the , but remove it from every question that already has a rendering engine tag.

    $\begingroup$ @iKlsR, I've seen this done quite often on several different other SE sites I'm a part of, mainly just to make it easy for the community to choose the option they like best. $\endgroup$ – Peter Cassetta May 23 '13 at 3:35

    $\begingroup$ @Dan the Man, no, you can't get rep from the meta site. $\endgroup$ – Peter Cassetta May 23 '13 at 3:35
