If the question is about Logic, and similar DAWs, the piano roll is
one music editor and the score is another music editor. Just two
alternate ways to display the music you are working on in the DAW. But
the score edit usually has a Print function as well. I'm not aware of
anything that can "render a score" because a score always needs smart
(human) decisions on how to make it optimally readable for the
musicians (that is going to perform reading the score). In Logic and
similar DAWs you do not have support for a full score vs individual
musician's/sections parts. If you need that distinction a full-fledged
score editing application would be appropriate, like Sibelius or
Finale.
