This is mainly for those artists who use grease pencil for storyboarding and don’t know much python(if any) since it’s really a simple script.And who might want to export their frames for adding them to a pdf or to some other storyboard software.
it will do go trough the keyframes of every grease pencil object. Add the numbers to a list -> then will loop trough the numbers -> move the timeline to that number -> render it as well as change the name for every frame in the output scene settings.
it will appear as if blender has hanged but it will actually do all the above mentioned stuff.It’s just that won’t do it live. But if you have your system console opened you will see that it’s just saving the files.
Note: this is really quick and rough…no buttons no operators.No smart behavior as well.
You need to have the render file format as single file not video(it won’t change it itself).Also you have to manually add the name in the Output part of the scene settings(it won’t do it for you). Also I noticed that it might change the name and add the “_0000” I added to make the file names sequential,but if that happens it will add another ‘_0000’ to the filename.So you need to watch for that when you re-run the script.
Also I haven’t tested it…but it might crash/not work if you already have the previous renders still in the render folder(I think it won’t overwrite them). Just to make sure…delete/move all the files before re-running the script.
