Rendering multiple model configurations

2018-05-15 14:51:03

I have a model of a furniture

I have these parameters :

3 types of wood,

5 colors of the frame

6 size.

It's 90 possible configurations of the furniture.

How can I manage the scenes and render the batch of the different configurations ?

If the parameters that varies can be keyframed, you can do something like that :

add keys for your frame color on frames 1 to 5

add keys for your wood on frames 5, 10, 15 (5*n 3 times)

add keys for your size on frames 15, 30, 45, 60 ,90 (15*n 6 times)

In the Graph editor, make all your channels cyclic extrapolation, and all your keys constant interpolation.

Select a picture format as render output (not a video format), and render a 90 frames animation : you will get 90 different pictures.
