Hi, is there a way to program several scenes for batch render so that Maya renders different scenes one after the other over night ?
thank you

Hi, you could do your batch rendering from the command line, using the render command. Make a batch file and "stack" one command line for a scene after another.

Hi ZHENYANG, I have never used the command line for anything, is there a way you could send me a file with the step to follow, I would hugely appreciate this. Thank you very much.
Your website looks good by the way.

make sure your renderglobe setting is no problem of the every sence
then copy the sences in one file(in the same place)
then create a new .txt file
the context is:
render (your sence name).mb
render (your sence name).mb

save the file
then change .txt to .bat
that means the .txt file change .bat file
click it
ps: my english is not well ,but i hope you could understand it

take all the code below, modify it to meet your need and put it all in a .bat file

render -r mr -rt 4 -v 5 -proj PROJECT_NAME SCENE_NAME1
render -r mr -rt 4 -v 5 -proj PROJECT_NAME SCENE_NAME2
render -r mr -rt 4 -v 5 -proj PROJECT_NAME SCENE_NAME3

P.S. the code above is for rendering with mental ray

try using render -help for aditional info
