Batch camera path render

  • A feature that is needed to batch render camera paths.

    images is already possible but you also need to be able to select camera paths and batch render.


    And the movie renderer needs a pause button..i takes up a lot of resources of my machine, so i want to turn it on when i am in a meeting or on lunch break, but pause when i need to do some work.

  • Hey Arno , welcome to our forum and thanks for your feedback.


    Both of these wishes are already filed as dedicated feature requests on our agenda. Through your voice, I've added a further upvote to each topic. :)

  • Isn't it possible to merge camera paths to one path. Phill Read showed that he makes a camera path and jumps form one camera to another without time in between cameras to create a cut scene


    the path files are like

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>

    <VideoPath version="1" easingInOut="0" shakyCam="0">

    <Keyframes count="2">

    <Keyframe order="0">

    <Position x="141.277" y="8.09012" z="13.4295" />

    <LookAt x="-0.897455" y="-0.107702" z="-0.427756" />

    </Keyframe>

    Should not be that hard to rewright that to one path right...

    change keyframe numbering and time..

    Tryin to figure out how this works.... so why have keyframe 3 and 4 no time... and what is the difference between hour and timestampseconds

    can you also ad an easinginout at a keyframe
