I usually render my animation into image sequence format, It usually takes a lot of time, so I turn off my monitor and come back later to check the rendered result then find that blender crashed before rendering all the frames.
Since rendering can be done from the command prompt I thought about writing a script (running in my OS) to automatically restart rendering from the last successful rendered frame until all frames are finished*.
But I believe this problem is facing a lot of people out there, is there a way to deal with it? instead of reinventing the wheel?
- for example if the total render time is 8 hours I don't want come back to check my computer every 20 minutes (some times this is not available I'm asleep or away from my PC)
