Bake parameters into render or flipbook?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

 

Sometimes I would like to just try out quick renders and make the design decisions laters.

Is it possible to bake certain parameters you are trying out into your render, so you can see what you did differently back then, when you did that render?

 

Thanks,

This should be what you're looking for. Add the viewport comment render parameter to a camera, and flipbook as you would normally. Channel reference the attribute(s) you want displayed within backticks. Example file of mine attached!

Thanks, @markingleukc,

I saw this render setting also, which made me hopeful for also being able display a comment in a render.

But I don't know how to use it. When I place it on the camera it doesn't work. Does it belong somewhere else? Or does the comment exist in some hidden image-metadata and is not supposed to be on top of the C plane or a separate image channel?

The vm_image_comment is on the mantra node by default so technically it belongs there. You have to render from the mantra node (not just flipbook) to display the comment.

I see. :) I've noticed tho that the comment doesn't pop up when I render with the Render View and click 'Save Render' right from there, but it does work when I choose 'Render to Disk'. 

Does anyone know if there's a way to also save the exr comment with the snapshots saved from the Render View? As I would love to also be able to see the comment/settings on small render regions made with shift+click&drag.
