Hey,can anyone offer some insight to saving renders..?.......I have saved my scene (FLM) in the default location (daz/temp etc) shut down the PC…......turned everything on the next day and resumed the render no problem….great.
However If I create a new scene,luxrender seems to delete other existing scenes in the temp folder…..even if they have totally different file names?....any existing scene keeps getting replaced with the new scene?............I’ve saved my last scene in a different location/folder in the hope that I’ll manage to finish the render…..........is this normal?
I think that, by design, the temp folder gets cleaned up automatically.
If you want to keep the files to pick up later, select ‘Image File’ instead of ‘New Window’ in the Render Settings. That will put the files in your render library, and they will stay there until you delete them.
Just take care to choose an unused filename - no warning dialog box comes up if you’re overwriting an existing file.
