Framestamps & Vray?
show user profile  donvella
Hey all,

I was just wondering, is its possible to frame stamp each frame of my animation a different name? At the moment I'm just rendering out a whole bunch of houses and would rather label them once in max as I texture them instead of having to do it once again in photoshop after.

Any help would be appreicated. cheers

With vray set as the current renderer, maxscript can access its .system_frameStamp_string property.
So instead of rendering the animation the usual way, you could have a script that renders each frame with a specific stamp, read from a text file for example, then save it to disk.
I've never used maxscript for rendering, so I wouldn't know how to deal with the specific problems of animation (motion blur, reuse of irradiance map,etc).
Someone more knowledgeable might step in.
