I like that you can set the renderer to skip every other frame, or every 3 frames or whatever. nice way to get a taste of the animation without having to render it all out.

I was wondering if there is a script or something where you can set it to render every other frame, and then start over on the other ones once its finished.

That way I'd know I have something to look at when i get home, and that I'm not wasting any precious render time if it finishes the 1st half before I finish my bs.

You could probably do it with the lw render queue. Save out a version of your scene that starts with frame 1 and skips every other frame. And then save out a version of that same file but start at frame 2 and skip every other frame. Then submit both to the render queue so one job will render after the other.
