Using Expressions to Control Render Queue Parameters
on Nov 15, 2010 at 10:35:12 pm

Hi There,

I need some help with expressions to try and speed up my rendering.
I have a project with a number of comps in it and inside each comp there is say 20+ audio files and some animation on separate layers.

Currently my rendering process is: manually set the Work Area to the length of an audio file layer, select the layer and copy the layer name, then add the comp with that time span to the Render Queue. After that I select my destination and paste the layer name for the Output and hit Render. I've gotten rather quick at this but am looking at a few thousand files coming my way in the future.

What I would like to do is select a layer, click a button, and let an expression do all of the work for me...any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
-Patrick

Expressions won't help you, but a script could. Unfortunately, I don't know of a canned version out there that does exactly what you need.

It wouldn't be hard to write one, but it could be challenging if you haven't done it before.

I'd post in aenhancers.com. it as a huge search database with finished stuff then

maybe check out Consolidate_Sequence_Renders.jsx

"Creates individual folders for each file sequence render item (and output module) in the queue"
http://www.crgreen.com/aescripts/ie/

and adobe's
\Support Files\Scripts

renderNamedItems.jsx

Thanks for the quick response!
I'll take a look and see if I can figure it out.

This script is awesome, does exactly what I need with very little tweaking. Thanks again for the resource!
