Quick Batch

The Quick Batch menu lets you create batches automatically based on certain rules.

_images/batch_quick.png

Scenes

Create a render job for each scene in the blend file.

Markers

Use markers to create render jobs with specific frame ranges.

You can make render jobs animations by toggling the Animation checkbox. No matter what option you choose, Custom frame range and the Still frame settings will always be set to the marker.

This batch will create a job for each marker with a custom frame range that starts from the previous marker (or the beggining of the animation), up to the next marker (or the end of the animation). If you don’t use animations it will simply be a still frame for each marker.

Setting Description
Scene Scene to use for render jobs
Use all Scenes Use all scenes instead of the selected one
Animation Make all render jobs animations
Don’t set cameras Leave the camera field blank in render jobs

Cameras

Create an image render job for each camera.

Setting Description
Scene Scene to use for render jobs
Use all Scenes Use all scenes instead of the selected one

View Layers

Create a render job for each view layer. Only view layers that are enabled are used.

Setting Description
Scene Scene to use for render jobs
Use all Scenes Use all scenes instead of the selected one

Color Looks

Create a render job for each color look. This is useful to test different styles quickly.

Color looks are artistic effects that emulate different film types. The color looks can be found in the Color Management panel, in the scene settings tab.

Read more about Color looks in the Blender manual

This batch uses the Custom Overrides system to change the looks.

Setting Description
Width Width of the render
Height Height of the render
Output Path File path for renders (the color look name will be added to it).

Large Render

_images/batch_large_render.png

Divides the image in smaller tiles, creating a render job for each tile.

This batch uses the section setting of the Render tab to render only a portion of the image. This way you can subdivide a large image into smaller and more manageable images that can be rendered individually.

You can stitch the images together using a image editor like Krita, GIMP or Adobe Photoshop. If you use the “Open as layers” option in GIMP the image will come together automatically.

You can divide a render to up to 10 tiles horizontally and vertically. For instance, this means a 19,200x10,080px image would be rendered in 100 render jobs of 1920x1080 px.

Setting Description
Horizontal Tiles Number of horizontal (x axis) divisions
Vertical Tiles Number of vertical (y axis) divisions
Output Path File path for renders (the tile’s X/Y will be added to it).
