Can you tell max to begin rendering at a certain time?
show user profile  jpedleham
Im sure via the local time function of max i could get max to begin rendering at a certain time but im not sure how to make it so that max wouldnt be constantly checking the time.
Has anyone seen any other scripts like that before?

Like start a render at 6:15pm? A scheduled, queued render? Is that what you are talking about?

Yeah its exactly what i mean and its probably really easy to do or im missing something simple in max. It means that i can basically set 2 max files rendering one after the other when the first is finished rendering without having to be at work.

The kicker is, i know this can be done through backburner, but i would like to use DBR and im not sure if backburner will let me do that?

Download Deadline. It's free to use for up to 2 nodes... You can do scheduling with anything you want with it.

Look into event handlers. I suspect you'll need a custom solution for this. Can spend more time when I get home

Edit: stupid browser cache. Looked like only 9krausec had replied.

He wants to use DBR... don't think bullshitburner can do that.

So with deadline will i be able to use my 4 render blades on DBR or will it only use 1 other node because of the license limitation?
