Hello,

I have a rigged model and small library of poses. I’d like to automatically render it into sprites by:

- Rotate to specific angle
- Apply specific poses
- Render and save to file
- Repeat

Seems quite straight forward, right?

Well I have some issues making it work. This is what I got so far:

```
import bpy
import math
#this is my character
BasePerson = bpy.context.scene.objects["BasePerson"]
def RenderIn8Directions():
#here I rotate to specific angle
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(0)
#I provide path
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test1.png"
#And I save the file
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(315)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test2.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(270)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test3.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(225)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test4.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(180)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test5.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(135)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test6.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(90)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test7.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(45)
bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = "//test8.png"
bpy.ops.render.render(write_still = 1)
BasePerson.rotation_euler[2] = math.radians(0)
#here I'm changing mode to "Object" to properly select my object
bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode = 'OBJECT')
#here I'm selecting my character
bpy.data.objects["BasePerson"].select_set(True)
#here I'm trying to apply pose. None of those work though.
bpy.ops.poselib.apply_pose(pose_index=- 1)
bpy.data.actions["PoseLib"].pose_markers.active_index = 5
RenderIn8Directions()
```

Rotating and saving works ok, but despite hours of googling I have no working solution on how to apply poses. I mean it can’t be that complicated, right? It’s just one mouse click from UI.

My Pose Library is called “PoseLib” and my poses are named “Walk_1”, “Walk_2”, “LookRight”, “LookLeft”.

Please kind people, do you know how to make this work?

Best regards
