This node activates a mantra render driver node and uses the render as the node’s output image/sequence, allowing you render directly into a compositing network to manipulate the rendered image.
This node currently only works with output drivers that produce
format files. It does not support the OpenGL output driver
and output drivers that do not produce images.
It does not support Composite output drivers.
Use a Fetch node to get images from other composite networks.
Render COPs can only be processed serially. Only one may be actively cooking at a time.
Selects the output driver to render.
Automatically Render when Necessary
Re-renders the image when any of the scene parameters change. If off, the last render is held.
Force a render update.
Determine Resolution from Driver
Use the resolution and pixel aspect ratio found in the output driver.
Determine Planes from Driver
Use the plane(s) and data formats specified by the output driver. For example, if a jpg is output, an 8bit color plane is used. If a tif16 is output, a 16bit color plane with alpha is used. All variables on Mantra’s Deep Raster page are also rendered.
