Help Rendering From Command Line

This is my first time trying to render from the command line, and I have a slight issue. Command prompt does not recognize “blender” as a system variable, so i have to type out the whole path to blender. I have tried setting it as a variable but it does not work, and I cannot find how to to do. Can anybody explain this to me? Thanks!

It might be helpful if you mentioned what OS you are using since they are all different… I could explain how to do it on a windows machine, but I’d waste my time if your on a osx or linux machine…


Sorry, Windows 7

easiest way is to drag drop blender.exe into the cmd window instead of typing blender.exe
