    Working fine for me but the naming feature is super confusing.......I just want to name my file with the context I created on the panel but it just doesn't work at all. I don't understand at all how the auto generated folder works and I think it should make it simple. Let me type in the export file name when I choose the export path on the panel rather than in the settings. This is super frastruting and I can't even find a proper video to show how it works.....

    I really want to rate this as 5 star, but at the moment it simply doesn't work as it should, at least not for me and several others that I have noted on the discord. The features themselves actually do work and I frustratingly can see the potential, but I can't add any more than 4 contexts, not the many, many contexts as stated. Looking at this issue on the discord it seems that other users are receiving replies that are just technical jargon, which is most unhelpful and made me think I would rather not even ask for support. Such a shame, a potentially great product that for me has a fundamental issue that could probably be quite easily rectified.

    Awesome Addon that is a must when working with multiple cameras.

    Saved me a ton of time and the support is top notch!

    Fantastic addon!
    I switched from Keyshot to Blender for creating product renders but Blender isn't setup to handle product configurations very well.
    This addon helped to bridge that gap and make batch rendering much more efficient.

    I think this addon is great but it has more potential.
    Biggest downside for me was the file output. It has huge potential but was hard to figure out at first. It also has some limitations like automatically renaming single passes.
    Unlike stated in other reviews, the support on discord was quick, responsive and very nice. I'm looking forward to the 2.0 overhaul :)

    It has a lot of potential but fails because of a few shortcomings. My biggest issue is file output. I want to be able to have a custom directory saved in each blendfile. The preference variable approach is way to limited. A custom directory path option in renderset tab would be better.
    Every render is named "composite" and not named by the renderlayer. Doesn't make sense.
    Also want to be able to dump ALL renders into one folder for easy access(with correct naming).
    Hope it gets worked on because it has good potential.

      Hi Nikolaj, thanks for the feedback! Please check out the latest release, renderset 1.7, where we incorporated some of it. You can now change the name of Composite files and we added output folder override per context. We have an output overhaul planned for renderset 2.0. Stay tuned!

    I used to run into a lot of problems with this addon but since then they have addressed the majority of my feedback. I am now confident to use it in almost all of my projects and it does indeed save me a lot of headaches, especially for managing architectural still renders. On top of managing different cameras and scenes for you, its file management has also been vastly improved and I can achieve the following with this addon:- Manage visibility settings for each render context- Click one button to render all selected render contexts (no more binding camera markers to frames, this opens up a lot more possibilities for animations)- Automatically place the rendered outputs to "{blend_parent_folder}\{blend_filename}_renderset\{context_name}\{date_time}" (a few limitations still apply here as you won't be able to easily rename your composite outputs with parameters such as "{context_name}_", only set strings such as "Composite_")- Automatically copy ONLY the latest "Composite" output to "{{blend_parent_folder}\{blend_filename}_renderset\{context_name}\{context_name}_" for easy access (this way if you use InDesign your files will always be the latest whilst keeping a record of past renders).All in all, I believe this addon is in good hands and they'll continue to improve it in the future. Don't forget to join their discord if you run into any trouble and they have an experienced team to help you out.

      Hi Yifu, sorry we were not responsive on Discord at that time, I think we do a decent job at that but sometimes there may be delays. Please check out the documentation at Since 1.7.0 you can change the compositor setup and renderset won't reconnect it, you can now also change file type per slot and renderset will honor the settings. Not sure about the crashes, would need tracebacks and more info but generally speaking, renderset sets up blender and then runs blender operators. There is not much that could cause hard crashes (entire blender crashing and closing). Thanks for the feedback!

    Feels very limited. E.g. it is not possible to add all scenes to the queue automatically.

      Thank you for the review, this is actually possible with headless rendering, more information is available in the documentation. We will make sure that this option is more visible.

    I was nervous about this based on previous reviews that were not 5 stars but I have to say after using this for a few days this is EXACTLY what I was looking for and it is a great add on. I don't know why people have trouble finding their files or pointing where they get saved, it's very straight forward you just set a directory in the pref and all your renders show up there. Maybe there are specific use cases that this add on doesn't apply to but for me personally it is great!
