while checking how Blender could fit into our pipeline, I ran into some issues
that maybe someone finds worth fixing/implementing.
First a short list, and description further down:
1.: render renderlayers (and passes) to separate files
1.a: commandline flag to chose which renderlayer to render
2: additional location(s) for Configuration and Data files
It's pretty much self explanatory, but nevertheless some words of explanation:
1: When more layers are selected and I have an outputformat other than
multilayer-exr, they will overwrite each other and only the last rendered layer
Possible solution could be to either hardcoded the layername to the outputname,
or allow the usage of tokens (<Scene>.<Layer>.<Pass>).
I have a thread on blenderartists with more datail if needed:
1.a: When it is possible to render layers separately, there should also be a
commandline flag for it (where "-o" should override the eventually hardcoded
This would be mandatory for proper renderfarm integration.
2: I think it would be good to be able to add custom locations for Config&Data
files. I'll quote my blenderartists post
is it possible to have more locations for configuration and data files than
SYSTEM, LOCAL and USER?
I would like to have one place (or more) on the server for additional
SYSTEM doesn't work, because all users shall run Blender from the network.
USER doesn't work, because either I would have to deploy the stuff for every
user, or every user has to go with the same setup
LOCAL would work, but I would need to install stuff for each separate version or
That's basically it.
