Lightbulb Selective rendering

Hi guys

I rendered a sequence and now i realized that there are mistakes in a couple of frames.
How is it possible to render for example frame 2, 15, 50,55, 60....
I would like to render it with the command line. Does any one know how to to that? I just can't figure it out.
Thanks a lot

If you are familiar with Python, there are some render scripts attached to post #4 in this thread. You could simply create list of the frames you want to render and then use a loop to render each frame.
If animation couldn't change the world, it wouldn't be such a Micky-Mouse place.

A simpler but clunkier method would be to just make a batch script that does each frame as a separate render, like so:

Render -s 1 -e 1 projectfile.mb Render -s 15 -e 15 projectfile.mb Render -s 50 -e 50 projectfile.mb

etc. A bit awkward, but it will get all your frames and be "fire and forget".
