Render Animation

Post by areandres » Wed Oct 28, 2020 8:16 am

Hello @ all.
Ich have a question.
Is it possible to export a animation from Blender and then render the animation with Luxcorerender without blender ?
I did not find any way.

Exporting a LuxCore scene per frame should work if you enable the Filesaver mode in the render properties, LuxCore Tools panel.
However, you will need to write a small batch or Python script to render all frames with standalone LuxCore afterwards.

Ahhh ok.
Last time i did it but then 1200 folders made in total.
After that i did not know what todo.

My point was that maybe when i use the standalone version it could be faster and more stable.

But then its to complicated i will keep it running over Blender.

Anyways thanks for your reply.

Maybe we can help find the source of the instability.

I doubt it will be faster or more stable (unless there's some bug in the Blender addon or Blender affecting you).
What it will do is save memory: the scene only needs to be loaded by LuxCore and not by Blender, too.
So if your scene doesn't fit into RAM when rendering in Blender, it might be interesting to export it like this.
