While rendering an animation in blender is each frame considered a different scene?

I don't have much experience with animations what I do know is that while creating a video several images are rendered (frames) and then combined at about 24FPS.

My question is, are each of these frames considered a to be a different Scene?

    $\begingroup$ I'll create a new question for it. But I do believe it's related to the first question so I'll leave it in here as well. Would that be okay? $\endgroup$ – user3927312 Mar 21 '15 at 20:52
  • $\begingroup$ As this question stands, it's pretty unclear what you're asking. What do you consider to be a "scene"? I'm assuming that you're not familiar with Blender's concept of scenes (else you'd realize that they're quite distinct from frames), so you'll need to provide more information about what your question really is. $\endgroup$ – wchargin Mar 22 '15 at 5:22

I can only answer the first question.

Each frame is NOT considered a different scene. Every scene has their own frames/timeline.

So "Scene 1" could have 250 frames, and "Scene 2" could have 150 frames. However, the first 150 frames in each of these scenes are different. Changing some animation in frame 50 in "Scene 1" does not affect frame 50 in "Scene 2" (unless you've specifically linked them).

At the top of Blender, you can see which scene you currently reside in: enter image description here
