string ops

Great, shaved a few hours of my IBL render sequence!

btw, in max 2014 there is a string ops entry in the rendersettings, would be nice if that got populated with the actual strings so network rendering would make use of the ops as well.

I had to write a script that reformats the output from the listener into something I can paste in that input field.

Hi Tronotrond,

i have not test with your Render Manager, but i think it must work, because i use only the CallBack Strings, and that must work with other Render Manager. What does not work?

Other render managers

Great plugin, thanks!

I guess it's a bit tricky question, but would it be possible to get it to submit to other render managers? We just changed to Deadline at work which has its own submission script.
