Yes, I know of the -help option to show the command line options, but I wanted to see if maybe someone was working on this or had a custom version that does this. So, does anyone know if this feature will be implemented? I really like it with yafray because it allows me to batch script the rendering...

Conclusion...

So, it looks like Blender is not big-time enough to warrant commercial rendering services.

What if the renderfarm were free, like Blender, and operated off of donations, sales of other things (books), and advertising?

Would you pay for online rendering service?

With the growing popularity of Blender/Yafray, it makes me wonder if there are artists or studios out there who would be willing to pay for rendering services. Would you be willing to pay for rendering service for Blender/Yafray?

single file

Also, as suggested by several people, things like a more clean export by using separate mesh files and saving to it's own directory, maybe even gzipped (for the mesh files at least). I'd rather stick with a single file, myself. gzipping is fine, but can't everyone else do that already? Seems like i...

No surpise at all

No, I'm not surprised at all by the file size. The only reason I am checking with other people is because I plan on setting up a storage server for my school and I need to anticipate what size files I will be working with. I was just hoping to collect a census on file size. So if people could respon...

How big are your yafray XML files?

Hello, all. I wanted to get a feel for what the range of file size is for your exported xml files for yafray. Please reply with what best describes your average XML file size. This should be the size of the files that you do production work with. Thanks a lot!

get yafray xml for each frame of animation?

Hello, does anyone have a script that will export the yafray xml of each frame of the scene? For instance, if you have 5 frames in your scene, it would export file1.xml, file2.xml, file3.xml, file4.xml, file5.xml. I know that currently when rendering a yafray animation it just copies over the xml fi...

yafray render region question

Does anyone know if it's possible to use yafray's "render region" command line option (yafray -r -1:1:-1:1 file.xml) such that the rendered region shows only the pixels within the range you selected? In other words, if you have a 100x100 pixel image and you render -0.5:0.5:-0.5:0.5 (which is the cen...

make it work from the command line

I think it would be great if you could make the tiles be rendered from the command line. My reasoning is that by doing so, you could make the system multiprocess. You could write a shell script (or any type of script that can execute shell commands) that would iterate through the total number of til...
