Check this out folks!
Does anyone know a step by step on how to do the OpenGL stream rendering that is mentioned in this article? Talk about saving a ton of time, I would really like to know how to do this.
On the very right-hand side of the 3D window is a little button you can use to create an OpenGL render of that window. If you hold Ctrl while clicking it, you can render an animation.
Is that what you meant?
Yes, but I don’t know what this looks like. I can’t seem to find it. Could you post an image or email one to me?
It’s got a mountain and a sun, like the image for the render buttons panel.
I think it’s right next to the layer buttons.
Here she is. Follow the yellow arrow.
Man that rules!! I always wondered in the back of my mind what that was for. You should put that in the next video tut you do Whiteboy.
p.s. Here is another for your vid tut. In the render image if you type the letter “A” you will get what I think is the alpha mask for your render.
Ach! Ok, one more question. How do I save the OpenGL render as a file I can save and watch like you can do with regular rendering?
in the buttons window, go to the render buttons. on the right you can choose the format of the pictures or videos you can save to in a drop down (up) menu. select any kind of AVI for an animation, and then, on the left of the buttons window, there are three text fields. the one on the top is the render directory. browse to that directory in your windows explorer, and you’ll find the file you rendered. ka-peesh? (capice?)
