I've got render elements. Great plugin. However from memory it cannot record camera states. I also wish to automate the entire process for many cameras with just 1 button push.
Allow me to explain exactly what I wish to do so you can point me further in the right direction and I won't waste anyones time.
Basically I have already constructed a stereo/autostereo rig using xpresso. I had rigged up a control to change scene cameras using the stage object which was input from link data from an integer user input. Long story short this failed when merging my camera setup to a new scene. I need a better solution to activate various cameras from user data. Enter python.
What I want it a small loader plug in with a simple ui that is capable of 2 main functions (2 buttons).
1. Merge the external camera rig c4d scene into the active document.
2. Batch export the scene 8 times, to 8 separate scenes with unique naming. The only difference in each scene is the active camera 1-8. The logic behind this is that I can put these files to the renderfarm.
This sounds like fairly simple stuff to me. Could I achieve all of this with Python?
