2. 3ds Max Batch Rendering with PresenZΒΆ

In order to do batch rendering with PresenZ, you will have to add a Max script that will be executed pre-render. This script is automatically installed with your PresenZ installation in the following location: ...\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 20xx\scripts\vrayPresenZBatchRender.ms.

In 3ds Max open the Render Setup window. Under the Scripts section, include the ...\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 20xx\scripts\vrayPresenZBatchRender.ms script in the Pre-Render subsection.

After giving the path to the script, make sure to enable the script by checking the “Pre-Render Enable” checkbox.

Warning

Only check the “Pre-Render Enable” checkbox if you are rendering with backburner or in batch mode. If you are rendering in Interactive mode this option should be disabled.

Open the batch rendering window by clicking in 3ds Max the Rendering Menu -> Batch Render or - in the enhanced menu - Rendering Menu -> Tools (Rendering Set) -> Batch Render. Press the Add button to add several tasks to the queue, like you usually would, and select the desired PresenZ camera you want to render from for each task.
