Batch render from sheets

Question

I currently use vectorworks at my place of employment, and have to render usaully at least 12 photorealistic elevations a job, and render times kill me. Perhaps adding the option to choose as many files as you like, set all export settings for whichever file type required and choose the sheet from each to render. Then go home and let the computer go to work. If all could be rendered over night time per model would be decreased tremendously.

Thanks,

You use Batch Rendering, I suppose?

I usually name my batch rendering jobs with the same names as my sheets - except for an extra space. That way I have a good Idea of what is in the batch rendering dialogue.

It is somewhat time consuming to set export options for each batch render job, because it does not remember the export settings - like the Export Image File does.

I wish it did. And I wish I could just choose the sheets from within the Batch Render dialogues when creating jobs.

Finally I wish I could include animations into a batch render - even animations created with Animationworks.

the old batch rendering tricks

was just to export to Quicktime Movie

at 1 frame per second

then on the timeline set each saved sheet for the second marks. then pull each frame out of the movie to make JPEGs.

I believe that works with one file but to compress my somewhat large elevations into one file would set the size in the hundreds of megs and make it basically impossible to render
