Custom render output res
show user profile  soontekk
Hey folks,

Does anyone know how to add my own render output resolutions in the render dropdown ?
You know, where you can choose 35mm,pal,hd add my own and have a pane with resolutions i often use.

I'd also like to change the default vray 8 passes to my own number of cpus

been digging through ini's but i can't find what i need..

You can set up some render defaults, that makes it nice and easy to get things set up the way you want them.

I'll be disappointed if you can't. In the case of that though I'd suggest some buttons to run scripts to change the output size to half HD or whatever it is you were after

Ahh sorry. Early morning I guess. I didn't realize you were looking to assign a new default value. Seemed like a noob question at first and thought you had an early morning yourself ;)

Not sure what you mean Kurt?
You can set up any parameter of any render aspect you want,...and then save it as a preset.
Whats the problem?

I have several presets for things like animatic render, final output,..etc..etc.

Does preset save everything though not just one param like resolution? I think it's a fair question that there is a dropdown just for resolutions - you should be able to add your own

(but then, it's max innit)

Preset AFAIK saves the state of all render paramters. Their are presets for all 3 rendering options.
And you can make as many as you wish within.

I suppose if you wanted a a default render setup....then just set the resolution and save a preset.
Then call it up and change other params as you wish.

If you wanted to set all your other params and THEN call a render preset that ONLY changes resolution what would be the point? That would be more mouse clicks than just changing the resolution in the dialog.

And I think the OP is just trolling.......he's gone.....
