Please see Slide 1 for proposed draft of Background Renderer (BR) interface
End user should be able to execute a single .mi file in the batch and render the whole or partial list of frames.
Number of options here:
1. Process all frames regardless of which .mi was selected 2. or only currently selected (single frame render) 3. or currently selected and all consecutive to the end of the batch
Unprocessed only - only render frames which was not previously rendered (could be figured out from the presence of the corresponding frame images in the export folder) Stop after.. - Specify how many frames user wants to render (applicable for All Frames and Current Frame + Consecutive). A default "-1" value would be equal to "do not stop"
Another option is to allow multiple frames selection directly form a folder (1,2 and 3 in this case could be grayed out or simply ignored). Unprocessed only and Stop after should be obeyed. In case of multiple frames selected (and single too for this matter) I would like to have a BR option in Context menu:
See Slide 2
While I have listed only a few (a bare minimum I would like to see), I would not mind to see here as many as possible - the more the merrier! Pretty much self-explanatory - Override Scene Options is selected .mi files with specified values.
Last iteration was proposed by justaviking
Proposed by wires Also self-explanatory. Point to the specified folder where user would want to have logs. RL could figure out logs naming convention (with name of the batch and date/timestamp to have it unique)
Such an advanced control (or similar to control Settings.ini) is a must in the future Iray updates
Maybe we need to open an FT issue to fix FT. Edit capability is a must. I have a bad habit to write something quickly and hit submit. And then check grammar/semantics thereafter. :)
I wish we could EDIT Comments that we add to an Issue.
WHAT I WROTE:
If this suggestion cannot be well-implemented, the "Skip" capability will still be good.
WHAT I MEANT TO WRITE:
If this suggestion cannot be well-implemented in the very near future, the "Skip" capability will still be good as an interim solution.
