Creating a desktop shortcut for batch rendering

You can use scriptXSI.bat in %XSI_HOME%\Application\bin to create a desktop shortcut for batch rendering. When you drag and drop a scene file on that batch file, that starts a batch render.

To create a desktop shortcut, right-click scriptXSI.bat and click Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).

If you want to drag and drop multiple scenes:

  1. Copy scriptXSI.bat to your desktop.
  2. Edit the batch file and change it to this:
    @echo off
    call "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Softimage 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack\Application\bin\setenv.bat"
    if "%1"=="" goto end
    set SCN=%1
    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Softimage 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack\Application\bin\XSIBatch.exe" -render %SCN%
    goto next
