Is it possible to use mantra cmdline to render sequences

Recommended Posts

Just curious as to whether it's possible to use the mantra command line to render over the network a sequence of IFD's. I can get this cmdline stuff to work but not hqueue, but it's just one image from a sequence, is there an obvious way around this?

If your machines on linux, you can use simple shell scripts like this:

for ifd in *.ifd; do mantra -f $ifd; done

There's also the host argument for Mantra in case you want one machine to be the "master" that just farms out buckets. Though this is not as computationally efficient as each machine working on their own frame like HQueue or manually starting them on each machine.

mantra -H localhost,slave1,slave2,slave3 -f foo.ifd
