    @Mayaamani77 , welcome to our Forum! :)


    Are you referring to the ability to export multiple videos (through individual camera paths) one after each other, like a video batch rendering function with a single click? If so, let me know, otherwise please kindly rephrase your question a bit, as mentioned by Phil above it's not entirely clear I'm afraid.

  • Hello my friend

    thank you very much for spending your time to answer my questions.

    This is exactly what I mean ,but I don't know how I can export multiple videos one after each other.

    I would be garetful if you can help me.

    Thanks a lot

    @Mayaamani77 , thanks for your reply!


    I'm afraid at least currently you will have to export one video after the other - the ability to batch export multiple videos in a row is a feature request on our agenda, to which I'll add your upvote though. :) This ensures that our developers will be aware of the further demand for this function, which has been requested before quite a bunch of times!

  • 1) Make one long video path rather than separate video paths.


    2) When you get to the end of of one sequence, you will create a jump cut to the beginning of the next sequence (so you're not spending time rendering frames between sequences).


    To create a jump cut, set up ALL your key frames then save the video path as an XML file. Open the XML file in a text editor and change the transition time to 1/100th of a second between cameras where you want the jump cut. This will create a jump cut when rendering.


    This will allow you to create an animation of all of the animations at once.

  • Phil Read I like that idea but I worry about screwing up the 99th node and losing the whole lot.

    Editing the XML is a fantastic tip, I'd never thought of that.

    I usually end up with 30 or so 12sec videos so having it as one renderable sequence would be a serious time saver when it comes to rendering.


    Thinking...Thinking..... I wonder if .... Instead of trying to setup 1 path/xml file it would be possible to combine multiple smaller xml's into one big one. This would (in my eyes) the best of both worlds >>> easily recordable and editable paths BUT fast rendering.

    Theoretically, the combining should be easy with a bit of scripting in the likes of AHK.


    Here's a typical 2 node video XML, I'd have to +1 the key frames so the next 2 would be 2&3 etc and not their 0&1 and some work with the total duration/framecount etc but I think it's doable.

    As there are only 2 nodes in my example I don't have a transition time but its a 10 sec exercise to knock up 2 or more paths with 3 or more nodes to test with.

  • You can copy / paste the appropriate parts of XML files to create one XML file animation paths. Be sure to renumber in the correct keyframe order.


    I'm going to present a brief animation webinar tomorrow at noon EST. If interested send me an email.

    To be discussed:

    1) Explicit camera control

    2) Key frame tips/tricks

    3) Creating continuous cut / jump cuts (so you don't have to render separate paths)

  • Hello my friend

    Unfortunately I can't understand yor purpose.

    I don't know what is XML file animation paths,how I can make them, and how I can render some multiple videos one after each other.
