Hi there,

Just wondering if it's possible to customise a saver filename with an expression.
I'd like to make it so the saver filename is the same as the name of the scene.
Something kinda like this Project/OutputDir/$SCENENAME$_.png
I do this in Houdini a lot and it really speeds up creating output nodes.

Thanks,
Pete

I think you will need to set up your PATH MAPS in global preferences for your OutputDir, but there is no way to get the naming/versioning and extensions for sequences throught the expressions (you can do it by scripting with LUA or Python only)..
as for now you can use just something like - COMP:/render/0000.jpg (and check the Create Folder During Render) - the rendering will be done in the same location as a comp file with "render" subfolder.. COMP: is a known by the Fusion path to comp file..
