Thread: Start render at specific date/time ?

    Start render at specific date/time ?


    hi,

    is there any way to make an F10 render at a specific time ?
    e.g. [02:25am]

    any Master plugin that does this ?


    currently testing AHK options, but would e nice to do it in LightWave itself.

    (current AHK code)


    ; ifwinŠktiv Layout or somethin' like that

    #Persistent
    SetTimer, CheckTime, 30000 ;check time every half minute
    Return

    CheckTime:
    if (A_Hour . A_MIN = 0225)
    Send {f10} ; render
    Sleep, 2000
    Send {esc} ; requester dismiss
    Sleep, 1000
    Send {esc} ; requester dismiss


    Return

    yes, possibly.

    i don't think there is a current easy 1-click solution.

    so AHK it is...

    Alternative would be to have render queue running in background all the time, hold job until specific time, then submit to render queue.
