Capture - Rendering Settings

description: change Capture render settings via macro
remarks:

Remarks

  • These macros combine several capture properties to achieve sensible settings
  • ambient lighting and haze settings are controlled via separate macros
  • I like to use the macro for low render settings in a startup cuelist as it helps PCs with less powerful graphics cards to open capture

Explanation

This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

  • “Visualiser.Capture.AutomaticQuality”, false turns auto-quality off
  • Visualiser.Capture.BloomAmount sets the Bloom Amount
  • Visualiser.Capture.AtmosphereContrast sets Smoke Variation
  • Visualiser.Capture.AtmosphereSpeed sets Smoke Speed
  • Visualiser.Capture.SpillLighting turns Spill Lighting on or off
  • Visualiser.Capture.CaptureRenderingSettings sets the actual Rendering Settings Detail
