View Full Version : Maxscript Rendering control

05 May 2003, 09:57 PM

I have a question about controling rendering with script.
Actually I'm trying to control which frames are rendered with rendPickupFrames, but it seems to no work.

Any idea ?

from maxscript online reference:

rendPickupFrames -- string

Get/set the Frames string in the 'Common Parameters' rollup of the Render Scene dialog.

so if you want to set it to 1 and 4:

rendPickupFrames "1,4"

make sure the Render Scene dialog is closed, otherwise this call won't be sticky. In max5 you can say:
renderSceneDialog.close() to make sure it's closed.

For more info on this see the renderSceneDialog topic in the online reference..
