This Daz3D Batch Render article covers all kind of render tools you can use in Daz Studio to do batch rendering of multiple 3d scenes or cameras in a queue. What to do when you have a bunch of scenes that you want to render? You created them all, but never rendered. Rendering them would take a while and at the same time you will need to overlook the process and begin next render each time previous finishes.
You may think that you would need to stay up all night to keep track of everything and overlook. But that is not true. You can use Batch Rendering to save you all this time and work.
Batch rendering is a process in rendering when you can queue up a few images and they all will render one after another. It is extremely helpful for situations when you have multiple cameras or even scenes that you all want to render.

Sadly, there is no batch rendering function built-in the Daz Studio. Though there are plenty of options for add-ons that add this function. That is what we are going to look at at this article – add-ons that add batch rendering to the Daz Studio in no particular order.
After you are done working on your scene or scenes – you can add them to Render Queue and set all the settings that you need, such as final render file name and proceed to work on another scene, for example. At the end of your workday you open the Render Queue and start rendering. This will create renders of all the scenes that you have added in the queue previously.
You can be sure that there would be no problems with your renders. Because Render Queue keeps a log of everything that happens to them. And even reopens the Daz Studio after each render to be sure that it has enough memory to continue. And after all renders are done, Render Queue even can turn off your computer for you.
Important note: Render Queue works only on Windows OS systems and Iray renderer only.
Render Doctor is a script that can render your sequences of images automatically. This can be different cameras, different scenes and even different styles.
