Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Batch rendering, part of Maya 2013 Essential Training: 6 Lights and Rendering.
Up until this point we've just been rendering single frames and that's just…using the Render Current Frame, so if I click this button I get a render.…Now if want to get a little bit more control of the renderer or if we want to…render animation, we can do what's called a Batch Render, so let's show you…how to set this up.…Now under the Rendering menu set we have a Render option here, and under…this we have Batch Render.…Now before I click this we need to set this up.…
So the first thing we want to do is tell Maya where we're putting the files, we…need to set our project.…So I'm going to go File > Set Project and make sure it's set to the FinalRender…folder, go ahead and set that.…Now when I know where it's going and let's go ahead and tell it a little bit…more about what we're rendering.…So I'm going to go into my Render Settings window, and I'm going to scroll down…here and under File Output we're going to add in a number of things here.…
The first one is the File name prefix, in other words, what's the name of this file?…
