New tool is coming SimBatch – simulation manager
Tool for simple and complex simulations, as well for single shot and multiple sequences,
…with focus on caches and prevs versions management.
Flexible defined schemas with predefined variables allow to embrace almost every situation. Implemented support for muti projects and multi users makes this tool useful for animation studios.
There are situations when SimBatch is very useful tool:
– when you need simulate a lot of shots using common base setup
– when you want test variations of simulation parameters
– for other masive operations (exporting, importing, creating previews, changing parameters)
I designed cBatch for batching a hundreds of clothes simulations by one click ( in perfect situation ;] ).
After preparing setups and defining sequences, this tool can compute simulations, make previews and set proper status.Simulations can be distributed on many simnodes.
It is ready for multi project and multi users data. Technologies used: MAXScript, python, MEL and MySQL.
