Backburner: A render queue for multiple scenes?
show user profile  Jeff P
I've been studying the workings of creating a small render farm.

It seems fairly straight forward.
I'm able to initiate a render sequence utilizing my other systems easily enough, however I'm a bit confused how to create a list of Jobs and send these to the Monitor Queue.

While in Max, (within the Job Assignment dialogue window), when I click
on Submit, this automatically begins the render of the scene I'm currently in.

Is there a way to Create multiple scenes in max, save these off, then submit all my scenes as job tasks to the Backburner Queue Monitor, In which I can render these at a later time?

Typically when working with animation I’ll have a sequence comprised of multiple scenes. I’d like the ability to have the Render Queue render each job, then move onto the next after its completion.

Can this be done with Backburner?

if i understand you right, there is an option before you submit the job to "initially suspend"... then the job will appear in the monitor but not start until you flick the little light to green. You can que the jobs up by initally suspending them all, then setting them all to go whenever you want... it will complete them one by one.
