Is it possible to batch process rendering, so that I can render several strips in a row unattended?
Yes there is. With the sequence editor. Several strips come out
as one strip though.
All the scenes/animations or images have to be in the same blend file.
And in seq editor do add scene several times and add the strips which you want to render, place them on the timeline.
thanks j, but what I was looking for is the command line feature of blender that I just discovered! Very cool! That way I can place all strips in a batch file and render in sequence to the right directories.
