i couldn't resist and looked at the command line rendering, which has
many advantages to make rendering multiple scene during the night
It works but there is some problems:
* at first, i've to delete the 2.61 prefs file to make it work (i use
*the MAYA prefs *and this makes blender-command-line scratch --> with
the original blender prefs, it works, please resolve this issue because
it's important to keep working with maya prefs... : i join attached a
sreen capture of the bug )
* when launching the rendering process with the command line below :
blender -b file.blend -o R:/"test de rendu3" -F PNG -x 1 -s 001 -e 050 -a
it works BUT _*THE RENDERING SPEED IS THE SAME AS THE CTRL-F12*_ key and
so *it's not as fast as the preview window* ( 5x slower ): i attache the
scene to this mail.
Is there any option to add to the command line to make it render faster
? ( perhaps to select the CUDA mode ?... )
Another strange thing is:
it renders at 30 samples with the command line but the file is recorded
Thank you per advance for your enlightement .... :)
