I am trying to figure out if it is possible to render from the command line (without launching the UI). The help on Animate suggests that this may be possible but details are scarce:
I am to Refer to the documentation for more details.–Any idea where these docs are? I cannot find anything on command line Animate–only utilities.
If you do Animate -batch then it will render out the frames of your scene. But because Animate does not have a network view, you can’t specify any of the details of that image so you’re stuck with a TGA file which it does by default. If you were using Animate Pro, then it would render according to the write node that you set up.
