A job can have multiple Pre-/, Preview-/, Post-/ or Finished-scripts.

These scripts do not render any frames.

They are used to do special tasks for the whole job before or after rendering.

They are executed on the client. You can recognize the scripts in the job log section as the log files are purple.

  • Pre(render)-Scripts are executed before any frame is started.

      They can be used to precalculate stuff for the job.

  • Preview-Scripts are executed after the preview frames are done.

      They can be used to send information about preview being done or an upload of the preview images.

  • Post(render)-scripts are executed after all frames are rendered.

      Typical Post-scripts are the Web Video Creation or the Sequence Checker.

  • Finished-scripts are executed after Postrender-scripts.

      The only difference between them is that the Job Approval is between them.

      So only approved jobs execute the Finished-script.

      Typical Finished-Scripts are for example the copy to your cut or compositing station (e.g. Avid, Flame,...)

      Note: Job Approval has to be enabled in rrConfig. 

The script files are located in RR\render_apps\_prepost_scripts\

The format is the same as the render config files.

The header is different.
