Render Manager is an application that comes standard with DomuS3D and processes renderings outside of the program. With Render Manager, you can decide whether to execute renderings immediately or prepare your rendering “jobs” for processing at a later time. Additionally, Render Manager can be utilized to process renderings while simultaneously continuing to work within DomuS3D.

That being said, Render Manager and DomuS3D share the same resources and, if running at the same time, both applications will operate a bit slower than normal as CPU cores will be partitioned and assigned to both programs.

If you are working with a multi-user design team, it is recommended that you set up a dedicated machine that will process rendering jobs using Render Manager. All DomuS3D users of your team can then send their rendering jobs to this dedicated machine, keeping their individual workstations free to continue design work within DomuS3D.

You can launch Render Manager by clicking the dedicated button within the DomuS3D Starter.

The first time you open Render Manager, you will have to indicate a folder on your computer from which the program will extract the rendering jobs to process.

You can always change this folder at a later time; to select a different work folder, click on the field that shows the current path of the folder and select a new one.

It is important that all rendering jobs exported from DomuS3D are saved directly in this folder and not in sub-folders, otherwise the program will not read the files and the renderings will not be processed After you set all the desired options, you can launch the rendering by clicking the Start Rendering button .

When the above button is pressed, it appears highlighted with a light blue background : when highlighted, the program will continue processing renderings jobs from the work folder (one after another) until interrupted or until there are no more jobs to process. The order of the rendering jobs in line to be processed can be changed using the arrow buttons .
If you click on the above button again, it will no longer be highlighted and, at the end of the current rendering, the program will stop processing rendering jobs, even if there are others in line waiting to be processed.

Double clicking on a completed rendering job (completed renderings have a green check mark next to them) will open the folder where the finished rendering is saved.

Rendering jobs in line to be processed can be deleted by clicking on the trash button

A job that is currently processing can be paused (and continued at a later time) by using the pause button : pausing will momentarily interrupt processing and thus restore CPU power to the other applications running on your computer. When you are ready to continue the rendering, click the OK button in the pop-up window that appears.

To interrupt a job that is currently processing, there are two buttons: .
The first button on the left will interrupt processing of the current job definitively and stop the program from processing the other rendering jobs in line to be processed. The button on the right will interrupt the current job and move on to processing the next job in line.

The final button which should be noted is the following: .
which can be switched either ON or OFF. When clicked ON, your computer will automatically shut down after all rendering jobs have been processed. This can be useful if you are rendering overnight and want your computer to automatically shutdown after it has completed its work.
