Render Specific Take via Command Line?


#1

I was wondering if it was possible to render a specific take in a .c4d file from the command line. In the editor, a way to achieve this would be by using the “Render Marked Takes to PV” button, but I’m not sure if there is any way to specify that via command line. Does anybody know if this is possible? If so, do you have an example? Thanks.

From the manual https://help.maxon.net/us/index.html#52193
Example: c:\Programme\\Cinema 4D\Commandline.exe -render c:\Szenen\hajopei.c4d -take front
This command renders a specific Take. In this example it’s the Take named ‘front’.

As usual, change the directory names to your specific setup.
