first of all, thanks for the help you have provided me indirectly through this forum.
I am trying to generate still pictures using blender. I have the python script and the model which are both functioning well but i would like to take the script out of the blender file to be able to generate it with an external macro.
I can currently generate the picture by running the python script from the GUI. I am also able to generate the picture from the command line if I call the script saved within the blender file (Internal_Script.py is inside the blender file).: "C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\blender.exe" --background model.blend --python Internal_Script.py -f 1
however, if I take the content of this script and copy it in a file alongside the blend file, it doesn't work any more (External_Script.py is a separate file now). "C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\blender.exe" --background model.blend --python External_Script.py -f 1
the python script is definitely being read as i get an error if I misspell the filename.
Error: Cannot render, no camera
This is quite strange as there is definitely a camera and the script works just fine if it's saved in the blender file.
Would you have any idea about what's going on?
