automate simulation and render

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My computer is powerful but nothing ridiculous and I lack a farm to send jobs to.

 

I was wondering if there was a way to automate setting off a hi simulation and then do a render straight after?

 

I would like to work on a low quality iteration during the day, nail the behaviour, look and then set things off over night to simulate and render.

 

Any pointers would be really appreciated

 

Thanks

Dependencies can be setup by daisy chaining ROP nodes. So one ROP node could be the simulation output the next could be the render. There are lots of other ways but that's the most straight forward. Could also setup scripts with Python or HScript.

Ahh awesome, do you have any resources that you might be able to point me at for making some scripts?

 

The daisy chain stuff is working nicely, keen to push the automation a little further if possible
