The @remotion/renderer package provides APIs for rendering video server-side. The package is also internally used by the Remotion CLI and Remotion Lambda.


The configuration file has no effect when using these APIs.


npm i --save-exact @remotion/renderer@4.0.163
npm i --save-exact @remotion/renderer@4.0.163
