I'm totally noob to blender and use it only to render isometric sprites from 3D animation. I would like a script to render my animation , rotate my object 45° on Z axis, render again, rotate again etc etc... 8 times so i can get my 8 isometric view sprites. Is it possible?

    $\begingroup$ Why don't you just set it up as animation rotating the camera and just repeating the the other animation? $\endgroup$ Mar 5, 2020 at 9:03

  • $\begingroup$ Not necessarily wrong but... transforming the camera (one object) is faster in general than transforming a bunch (hundreds) of objects. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Recommend you make this an edit to the question To run a script like above, paste it into text editor (not py console) and choose run script (play button near name on later versions) Another thing is blender uses radians as an angle (look up radians if you don't know what it is) 360 degrees = 2pi radians. $\endgroup$

Isn't this just an animation?

  • Length: 8 frames
  • Keyed in Z rotation only, interpolation Linear
  • 0 at frame 1, 360d at frame 9

To copy animation to selected objects from the active object, CtrlL > 'Animation Data'.
