Tag Buttons

Ever wanted buttons for stuff like Protection tag, cloth or other stuff, well now you can. If you need any other buttons, just let me know and i’ll whip em up for you.

Also these scripts will finally allow you to create keyboard shortcuts for these tags. Which can save a lot of time if you apply protection tags regularily.

Tokens – file paths and naming made easy!

In this tutorial i go over how to use tokens and relative paths to making saving renders easier than ever.

Why do things by hand, if you can automate it? also great for keeping naming conventions consistent throughout projects and eliminating typo’s.
Some of the more common tokens are:
$prj: Project file name
$camera: Current camera name
$take: Current take name
$pass: Multi-Pass or object channel name (the defined multi-pass names). Primarily to be used as the directory name.
$userpass: Multi-Pass or object channel name (the multi-passes renamed via double-click in the Render Settings (opened Multi-Pass tree view). Primarily to be used as a directory name.
$frame: Current animation frame
$rs: Current Render Setting name
$res: Image resolution (e.g., 800*600: 800X600)
$range: Animation range (e.g., from frame 23 to 76; 23_76)
$fps: Frame rate
With CV-tokens you get some other very useful ones like:
$cvHeight: so you can name your renders based on vertical resolution, so you get “render_720” or “render_1080p” by using “$prj_$cvHeightp”
$cvUsername: Also super handy, you can add it to just folder name for example, so you know where the render is coming from, but doesn’t interfere with file naming
$mm $ss: For minutes and seconds, so you can save every render without over writing or saving incremental files, great for looking back over your project.

Do you have any questions? Be sure to ask in the comments and i’ll add the answers to this post for everyone to see.
