Render+ 1.5 Released

A new release of Render+ is out today. 1.5 brings sev­er­al fix­es, some pol­ish and a handy new feature.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve hit ren­der only to find some object stick­ing out in the mid­dle of it. The fact that you can tog­gle vis­i­bil­i­ty in the view­port and ren­der inde­pen­dent­ly is great, but it can also get frus­trat­ing. With the new auto­hide set­ting, Render+ can take care of auto­mat­i­cal­ly hid­ing objects for ren­der­ing when they are hid­den in the view­port (and vicev­er­sa).
It’s a real life-saver when work­ing with heavy ren­ders and hun­dreds of objects.

What’s new

  • Default Output path pref­er­ence. The user can now set a con­ven­tion for new out­put paths in new ren­der jobs.
  • Test Connection but­ton for Email set­tings. The con­nec­tion to the SMTP serv­er can now be test­ed with­out send­ing any emails.
  • Clear Batch Temp Folder but­ton. It’s pos­si­ble to delete all left-over files from the batch­es tem­po­rary fold­er in one click now.
  • Added doc­u­men­ta­tion and a warn­ing when set­ting up a Gmail account for emails. Some extra setps are need­ed to use a Gmail account from R+ due to Google’s secu­ri­ty measures.
  • Email noti­fi­ca­tions don’t set a fake sender in the head­ers any­more. This pre­vents Gmail from reject­ing emails.
  • Duplicated ren­der jobs now come up below the orig­i­nal job and are auto­mat­i­cal­ly selected.
  • Render Layers Quick Batch now includes the scene name in the ren­der job’s name
  • Fix a bug when start­ing batch­es with a ter­mi­nal on Windows
  • Scenes Quick Batch doesn’t fill the ren­der­lay­er input any­more. This way it will ren­der all lay­ers by default. The old behav­iour can be repli­cat­ed using the Renderlayers Quick Batch.
