For a university assignment, I had to “display” my modeling progress. My instructor wanted me to do a screenshot every 60 seconds. However, he was not impressed by the result. He wanted to see real renders. To avoid interrupting my work every 60 seconds I enabled the internal “autosave” feature. Then, of course, I ended up with a ton of files. But now I still needed to render out every single file, so I created a simple script to render all files in the folder. This Python script will create a batch file which when executed will render every single file.
