Anyway you can make Automation ToolKit choose one of these?

Hi @GingerFinger , sorry for the late reply, I am just returning from a vacation :smile:

This property is not natively supported, and I am planning to add this as just one property that you can change (so doing it now will be more complicated and longer),
but there is a function to run JavaScript code, and by using it I can change this property with some additional code,

I created for you an automation that sends the active composition to the render queue and than changes the location of the render to the desktop with a custom temporary name (you can replace this part with another location), and last it sets a custom naming template.

you just need to copy your naming template data, click on the naming template and then click a again on custom, then you can copy the naming template.

set render item file template.json (15.6 KB)

I commented each line so it will be easier to understand.
Please let me know if you have more questions,

How would I make it do it in the project folder?
LIke ProjectFolder/New Folder/[temp_name]###.[fileextention] (I’m doing an image sequence btw hence the ###)
the project folder will change every time obviously, so hard coding a path wouldn’t be ideal


Hi @GingerFinger ,
check this modified automation -

I added 6 lines for this (in blue),
apply an image sequence render preset (just in case), a name variable for the subfolder and setting the project file parent folder as the path of the render file.

set render item file template v2.json (28.4 KB)

let me know if it works or you need a specific changes.

It doesn’t work for some reason.
I have enabled these settings aswell

Hi @GingerFinger ,
i choose the wrong property in line 6 (“number of items” instead “number of render queue items”), so it bugged the automation. (it worked for me because I tested it on a very small project with only 1 project item).
I’m sorry for this mistake :sweat_smile:, and hope it will work now.
try this -
set render item file template v3.json (28.4 KB)

It does work!
Wonderful Thank you so much

Good to hear! :ok_hand:
