### [Submission] se_SplitComp

se_SplitComp

Split the current comp into segments and send those segments to the default Render Manager.

Especially helpful if you run into memory issues during rendering long comps.

By splitting the comp into segments, Fusion is forced by the RenderManager to close and re-load the comp after a segment is finished, thus freeing memory.

Hi SirEdric.

Nice tool!

I wanted to mention that there is a case sensitivity issue on the Deploy path in your atom. The "Comp" part of the filepath needs to go from lower case to be capitalized like:

Code: Select all

"Scripts/Comp/SirEdric/se_SplitComp.lua",

Fusion free does not support network rendering.
The solution is to shell out 300 bucks for the full version...

But you can render with the internal render manager in the free version. So, it would be nice if the script could also work on the free version
