Render Element Output paths


#1

Why do the render Elements output paths only update when you remove them and then re-add them?

I’m constantly redoing renders as well as versioning up the folder from v01 to v02 and so on.

But It becomes very annoying to have to re-add each element just so the output path is corrrect.
Any thoughts?

  • which software ?

3ds Max.

I create a scene with a sphere and material applied to it.
I make the main output save path C:\desktop\v01
I add the render elements, spec,diffuse, lighting.
-These elements are automatically correctly directed towards the v01 folder.
I then make a lighting change and change the main output save path to C:\desktop\v02
None of the elements update to the new path. Why is this?

Doesn’t matter. It’s not dependent on the render engine. Only way (afaik)around is either deleting and recreating all elements or reassigning the paths. Both can be scripted easily.
