Guess I'll explain again. So we often export 80-100 renders at the same time for a fairly specific reason (we upload these renders into a 360 viewer which we can embed into webpages. So essentially we're rendering a 360 video frame by frame. And no, for our use case, we can't use Pano's).
So within this workflow, we have no need to re-export geometries from Revit for each render, since all of the settings, time of day, exposure, etc. remains the same for each of the 80 renders.
In 2.6 and earlier, we would load up Enscape, set all of the lighting, TOD, etc to what we want and then batch render all 80 renders. This would take maybe 15 minutes.
With 2.7 and onward, every render within a batch is reloaded from Revit into Enscape. So this is similar to closing and reopening Enscape 80 times... So our render times for these 80 renders went from 15 mins to sometimes 3-4 hours depending on the model complexity.
I understand how this may be useful if for example, we have 15 renders, all with vastly different settings. But for our workflow and what we need, this has been and continues to be a huge issue. And I'm not the only one.
What we suggested was implementing a toggle which turns this off. This was implemented in the latest update but for some reason, at least for me, turning the toggle on or off has absolutely no effect on whether or not Revit exports geometries each of the 80 times.
