The --render-frame argument now supports multiple comma separated frames as well as frame ranges (16f919ea). Examples:

blender -b test.blend --render-frame 1,2,4,8               # individual frames
blender -b test.blend --render-frame 1..100                # frame ranges
blender -b test.blend --render-frame 1,2,10..40,100..200   # both

Render Border

  • In the 3D view, drawing a border around the entire camera frame now limits viewport rendering to within the camera frame (5b99dd58)
  • Cache render results, save buffers and full sample antialiasing now work with border rendering (7fcab332)
