    I am very happy to announce that my first Daz product has been released today, the Render Queue. Queue up your renders, sleep while you work!

    The plugin allows you to render many scenes in sequence without having to sit next to your computer all night to start the next render when the previous is done.

    When you are done working on a scene in Daz Studio, you can add it to the Render Queue, set a target image file name, and work on the next scene. When you are done with your day's work, you can open the Render Queue again and press "OK, render the queue", and it will create renders for all the scene files you have added to the queue.

    You can go to sleep after starting the renders. Render Queue will process all the scene files you have given to it, restart Daz Studio after each scene to make sure it doesn't run out of memory, and keep a log how long each render has taken. It can even automatically shut down the computer after all renders have finished.

    The next morning, you can look at the render queue again to see how everything went.

    Please note that at this time the product is Windows only. A Mac version may be added at a later time.

    And thanks to Daz for coming up with that great tag line!

    Hey, ManFriday, first off, thanks for the awesome program. It has made life so easy. So I am not sure the right place to report something like this but I recently discovered a bug with it. It turns out that for some reason, if you queue a scene with certain elements, in this case "Moshi The Kitten" or Daz Dog 8 with the Oso Dog Fur add-on, it does not generate the fur correctly. I thought maybe I had to enable the "force strand-based hair" setting, but even with that enabled, it still does not render the fur correctly. I am not sure if this is something you can fix, but may want to look into it.

    Also, not sure if you can do this, but if you could find some way to allow us to move a set of scenes in the queue in bulk, that would be awesome. I am guessing you have tried but with no luck. It can be so horrible to have to move several scenes in the queue, one at a time lol

    Thanks!

    Thank you for the kind words! I have submitted the new version to Daz, which has a lot of changes about dForce hair, and it will also allow for bulk adding scenes. I can't say when it will be released but it should be soon, I hope!

    I am VERY VERY much frustrated.... I use the Script atm. only because I want that my PC turns off, when the Image is done, no more queques.... but.... everytime when I render, the script does turn off Mesh Smoothing on all Clothes during the render.

    WHY?!.... I use Daz 4.20.

    After loading the scene again, Smoothing is active and all is fine -.-

    Example, Smoothing Off:

    Smoothing On:

    Render:

    All the clothes are with holes...

    Hi, how long does it normally take for DAZ to check/approve a new version? I can't wait to check out your new features/improvements ;-)

    It varies, depending on how busy they are.

    I think you could ask a moderator to move specific messages, because it is very confusing to have them intermingled here.
