The tool render.py reads one or more files and renders the scene using a RenderMan renderer. The tool takes care of creating the RIB files and the shaders, compiling the shaders and launching the renderer.
If the environment variable RENDER_DEFAULT_OPTIONS exists, it is read and parsed to set the default options. After that the options in the command line are parsed.
render.py [options] inputfiles
If the argument specifies a file this file is loaded as a plugin, if it is a directory, all files in this directory are loaded. You can specify this option more than once or you can use a comma separated list of names.
You can also set files and paths via the environment variable CGKIT_PLUGIN_PATH. The files/paths have to be separated either by ‘:’ or ‘;’.
The render tool does not generate any user input events.
