photo rendering job queue
My wish for Sweet Home 3D future version would be to have the photo rendering options that allow users to queue up multiple photo rendering jobs to the computer. This way I can submit several rendering jobs before I go to sleep and I don't have to wake up every 2-5 hours to do the next photo rendering jobs. By the time I wake up in the morning, at least 2-3 photo rendering jobs would be completed.

Any thought on this?

Re: photo rendering job queue
What about trying 3D view > Store point of view and 3D view > Create photos at points of view menu items?

Ah.... this is exactly what I was wishing for. So the feature is already there. Thank you very much for pointing this out to me. I really love SH3D!

By the way, a tickmark option to automatically shutdown the computer when the photo rendering job is finished would be great. Multiple rendering jobs can take hours and ideally would be left to run overnight, so this auto shutdown option can be a good way to help us save electricity. Some video production software have this auto shutdown option, e.g. Cyberlink Power Director.

There's no shutdown option in Java API, nevertheless there seems to be a solution to achieve this. Maybe in a future version...

Interesting!
I had a similar request to put the system to sleep when the photos creation at points of view is complete.
