Render Settings - how to trigger "Custom Configuration" or Preview

hi all,

Render Settings (F12) has nice option to speed-up renders (turn off HiQ, MB, Frame Steps/Skip).

How would you trigger - choose specific configuration (between Final, Preview or Custom) for Fusion.exe CMD, render slave, remote job?
Seems "Final" its default no matter, custom Configurations.

Thanks, if you know solution.

HI again,

I still cannot find MB, HiQ switch off.
I looked in documentation, seems there is only:
QueueManager.AddJob(filename[, groups][, frames][, endscript])
no way of controlling HiQ, MB, and Quality.

I wonder how Fusion can send custom PREVIEWS to renderslave with custom - HiQ, MB, Proxy etc.
But there is no way automatic via script.

Composition:Render( ...... HiQ, MB = false ...etc. ) <---- this works but only in loaded comp, console.
Overwriting in Notepad composition file - "Render" default configuration HiQ, MB - still is ignored, and no way of auto-selecting "default" Preview for quick render.

Wonder how to solve this ;)

comp:Render({UseNetwork = true}) works as well.

Danke shon SirEdric!

I managed to connect to remote renderslave from eyeonScript (remote server).

To conclude this thread, if anyone interested I used following via eyeonScript (x.x.x.x - renderslave IP):

Code: Select all

fusion = Fusion("[u]x.x.x.x[/u]", 5.0, nil, "RenderManager")
fusion:LoadComp("X:\\shared\\local_2_remote.comp")
comp = fusion.CurrentComp
ProxyPreviewSetting = { UseNetwork = true, Groups = remote_machine1 , HiQ = false, mblur = false, Tool = Saver1, SizeType = -1, Width = 320, Height = 200, Steps = 20, StepRender = true }
comp:Render( ProxyPreviewSetting )
Thanks,
regards
