Command Line Rendering?

Hello, I just received the beta for Guerilla render. And I must say I am very impressed. Compared to other renderers I used in the past this is actualy faster.

Computer Specs
Intell Centrino vPro 2
Intell chipset integrated
1 gig of ram

Yeah Im not useing a real cg computer, but thats a school computer for you. So useing the sample scenes this is what I got.

Without the Hardware render active
7mins 23sec

With active
7min 53 sec

I know a Nvidia is required and my times would probably be knocked down to a minute but is it possible for me to do a Command Line render for windows?

You can do a batch render if you like : go in the "Render Passes" tab, select the layer you want to render, and the "Batch" render mode, then hit "Render". The render will be done with an external batch renderer.

Nvidia graphic card will not improve render time. It's not a GPU renderer. GPU will only help you for the viewport feedback that is closely matching with the software rendering.
You can also change your signature lol smile

Re: Command Line Rendering?

Ok, do you need Nvidia for the full preview functionality, or not and it only makes it faster?

It's just that for the moment, the software has been tested mostly on NVidia hardware, it may suffer of some user interface bugs on ATI. No effect on the final render time.

Re: Command Line Rendering?

That explains the multitudes of errors, that, or the fact that my computer does not have LUA

Hum.. It looks like Guerilla is not correctly installed on your computer.. Are you administrator on this system ?
