l = list

b = l[k-2]
c = l[k-1]

#print (c);


### active camera ######
CmaxwellCamera
camera = scene.getCamera(d)
camera.setActive();

### write mxs ##########
outPath = 'new_mxs_file'
ok = scene.writeMXS(outPath);

a = list
for i, val in enumerate(a):
print i, val
----------------------------------------------
i write the list a,b,c,d manually to use them as camera name
camera = scene.getCamera(d)
how i set every camera active and render all views automatically ?

Code: Select all

for name in cameraNames:
  camera = scene.getCamera(name)
  camera.setActive()
  ##render code
thanks Luis that much easier
i add render code but nothing happened and i don't find any information how to add camera to render parameters.
-camera:name don't work
Code: Select all

camera command work now . but the render don't detect the "name "
Code: Select all
from pymaxwell import *

scene = Cmaxwell(mwcallback);
scene.readMXS('c:/input/t.mxs')
cameraNames = scene.getCameraNames()
print (cameraNames)
for name in cameraNames:
  camera = scene.getCamera(name)
  camera.setActive()
outPath = 'c:/output'+'/'+'name.mxs'
ok = scene.writeMXS(outPath);


def run_maxwell_render():

	parameters = []
	
	parameters.append('-mxs:'+'c:/input/t.mxs');
	parameters.append('-o:'+'c:/output'+'/t.png');
	parameters.append('-mxi:'+'c:/output'+'/t.mxi');
	parameters.append('-res:300x200');
	parameters.append('-time:10');
	parameters.append('-sl:5');
	parameters.append('-camera:name');



	runMaxwell(parameters);

scene = Cmaxwell(mwcallback);
scene.readMXS('c:/input/t.mxs')
cameraNames = scene.getCameraNames()
print (cameraNames)
for name in cameraNames:
camera = scene.getCamera(name)
camera.setActive()

this code take the active camera only

The render part (inside the for)

parameters = []
parameters.append('-mxs:'+ "C:\temp\tmpMaterialScene.mxs")
parameters.append('-nowait');
parameters.append('-nogui');
parameters.append('-res:500x500');
scene.setMxsPath("C:\temp\tmpMaterialScene.mxs");
scene.writeMXS();
runMaxwell(parameters)

As you can see, you save a temp mxs and render it with each camera.

thank you Luis for help
i test the script and there are some problems
Code: Select all
from pymaxwell import *

scene = Cmaxwell(mwcallback);
scene.readMXS('c:/input/maison.mxs')
cameraNames = scene.getCameraNames()
for name in cameraNames:
  camera = scene.getCamera(name)
  camera.setActive()
  print name
  parameters = []

  parameters.append('-mxs:'+'c:/input/maison.mxs');
  parameters.append('-nowait');
  parameters.append('-nogui');
  parameters.append('-res:300x200');
  parameters.append('-s:6');
  scene.setMxsPath('c:/output');
  scene.writeMXS('c:/output/t_%camera%.mxs');
  parameters.append('-o:'+'c:/output'+'/t_%camera%.png');
  parameters.append('-mxi:'+'c:/output'+'/t_%camera%.mxi');
  parameters.append('-res:300x200');
  parameters.append('-time:10');

  runMaxwell(parameters)
-in the name of the new mxs : "t_%camera%.mxs" don't change
-the script print the name of every camera but maxwell render only the active one

You are right, you can do something like:

parameters.append('-o:'+'c:/output/t_'+ name + '.png');
parameters.append('-mxi:'+'c:/output/t_'+ name + '.mxi');

no problem with png or mxi ; just the mxs file
and other cameras didn't rendered ; there are 4 cameras in the scene and the render repeat the same view 4 times
By luis.hijarrubia

I don't mind about mxs repeating name, as you render each before writing the next one, so you don't need to have them all.

Can you post the complete script so I can test why is not rendering different cameras.

thanks Luis
i fix it ; i add output of the new mxs file when camera changed before getcamera line than i use the new scene for render
this is the script ; and thank you very much for help.

Does that work? As i see you set the active camera after saving and not before.
Yes worked fine
Because after se the active camera the new mxs file is always the same as the original file
Before set active camera it save a new scene with different view
I don't know why after set active camera the script don't change the view
You can test the two versions
