I have an image sequence of a car rotating on a turntable over 360 degrees and I need to change the car's color and output the modified sequence. My problem is that there are 9 colors of the car which I need to output. So what I'm doing right now is that I enable the "Silver" layer and render. Enable the "Black" layer and render. Enable the "Red" layer and render and so on until I have all 9 colors rendered. Every time the background changes or some adjustment curve changes I have manually re-render all of the 9 colors again.

Is it possible to write a script that would do exactly as I do manually?

1. Render the composition as a TIF sequence from frame 0-35 named as A
2. Enable layer 1
3. Render the composition as a TIF sequence from frame 0-35 named as B
4. Enable layer 2
5. Render the composition as a TIF sequence from frame 0-35 named as C
6. Enable layer 3
7. ...
8. ...

Could anybody help me how to write such a script if possible?

Thank you very much!
David

This script might help. Render Layers
