Re: Photo-video rendering plug-in
This doesn't work...
- right-click on the Windows logo
- select Run
- java -Xmx8g -jar C:\Users\hans\Downloads\SH3D-6.2_derived.jar
- nothing happens

Any suggestions?

Re: Photo-video rendering plug-in
Not sure if it works on Windoof, but go to your SweetHome3D directory, open the lib folder, rename the SweetHome3D.jar to anything else, rename the JAR-file from Enko to SweetHome3D.jar and copy it to the lib folder in your SweetHome3D directory.
Then start your SweetHome3D as usual...

You can launch the JAR file
- from a terminal:
java -Xmx8g -jar "C:\Users\hans\Downloads\SH3D-6.2_derived.jar"

- from a .bat file in the same directory as the JAR:
java -Xmx8g -jar SH3D-6.2_derived.jar

Re: Photo-video rendering plug-in
This beta version 1.8 of the photo plug-in will allow you to test the new shininess shaders and Sunflow standard options from version 1.2 of this other plug-in (Tools menu).

[Note: Updated download links to include video rendering and bug fixes in standard options.]

Re: Photo-video rendering plug-in
Perfect!

After some testing, I have found that a buffer size of 48 is marginally faster than 64 and 32.
Is it automatically detecting the number of threads available?

Quite oddly, it seems that choosing different bucket orders has an impact on the rendering time.
This is rendered with column.



Hilbert : 39 s
Spiral : 39 s
Row : 38 s
Column : 35 s
Diagonal : 35 s
Random: 48 s

I didn't try the reverse options – but I must admit I was somewhat curious about the reverse random...

I noticed no difference with the threads.lowPriority activated.

The project file is meant as an illustration of the rather hot inner core of the earth (intended for the education of my daughters),
and I wanted it to spin, so I tried making a video.
It seems the video will not render in Q4, but stops about half way.



I'm including the project file, in case anyone wants to give it a try ( 1280 x 536 )

@Ceciliabr

Yes, the number of threads by default is the number of available processors (CPU) that will be the maximum value because I noticed a bug by opening your file on my computer which has only 4 cores.

Quite oddly, it seems that choosing different bucket orders has an impact on the rendering time.
I think it depends on the scene.
With yours where the subject is central and the background black, the order has an influence especially on the calculation of the remaining time.

I didn't try the reverse options – but I must admit I was somewhat curious about the reverse random...
The "reverse random" bucket order will be removed.

I noticed no difference with the threads.lowPriority activated.
This is what I also found but I do not do any action in the plan or the 3D view during a rendering.

It seems the video will not render in Q4, but stops about half way.
Version 1.7 of the plug-in uses only the default values of the new options.
I will test with different video format because the lighting significantly increases the duration of the rendering.
