Floating point frame ranges
« on: May 01, 2008, 11:56:42 PM »
Is there a way to do floating point frame ranges?

e.g.:

agenda = qb.genchunks( chunkSize, "1-10x0.5") ?

Thanks,
Hai

Not at this time for a range of frames like "1-10x0.5".   Thank you for the suggestion though -- we have added it as a feature request. 

As a potential workaround in the interim if this is needed functionality, one can specify the frames manually in the range field and use the simplecmd or cmdrange with the QB_FRAME_RANGE parameter (executing each frame individually).  For example:
   
Code: [Select]
    Command: render.exe -s QB_FRAME_RANGE -e QB_FRAME_RANGE -b 1 <myscenefile>
    Range: 0.5,1.0,1.5,2.0
    Execution: Individual Frames

Note: The QB_FRAME_NUMBER, QB_FRAME_START, and QB_FRAME_END will only specify integers at this time.  The QB_FRAME_RANGE supplies the full name of the chunk, so can provide float values.
