Rendition Plug-in Guide
- 1 Rendition Plug-in Guide
You can submit Rendition jobs from the Monitor.
- Input MI File: The MI file to render. This needs to be on a network location, since Rendition often saves the output file(s) relative to the input MI file location.
- Output File: Optionally override the output file.
- Build To Force: Force 32 bit or 64 bit rendering.
- Skip Existing Frames: If existing images should be skipped.
- Additional Cmd Line Args: Additional command line arguments to pass to Rendition during rendering.
- Tile Rendering Options: Setup a Rendition tile rendering job. Note that this requires you to override the output file. Also make sure that the final image resolution settings are correct, because these are used to determine the size of the tiles to render.
You can configure the Rendition plug-in settings from the Deadline Monitor. While in super user mode, select Tools -> Configure Plugins and select the Rendition plug-in from the list on the left. To get a description of each setting, simply hover the mouse cursor over a setting and a tool tip will be displayed.
- Is Rendition supported by Deadline?
- Why do the image format options (like color depth) get reverted to defaults when rendering with Deadline?
- This only happens when overriding the output file in the submission script. When we pass the output path to Rendition, it uses the default image format options for the output type. If you don't want this to occur, simply don't override the output file.
