Cinema 4D override parameters (at render time)

Use these parameters to override settings at render time. The "<>" characters are not part of the command.

Here is an example of the correct syntax:
-oformat TGA

(PLEAS NOTE: incorrect settings can cause render errors, use these setting at your own risk Render Rocket is not responsible for USER ERROR)


-oformat imageformat

Replace imageformat with TIFF, TGA, BMP, IFF, JPG, PICT, PSD, RLA, RPF, B3D to override the Save Format stored in the project file.

-oresolution width and height

Replace width and height with the desired pixel resolution to override the render resolution stored in the project file.


Rendering a .PNG format with C4D (up to R14.014)

Earlier versions of C4D (up to R14.014) do NOT support the PNG format.  Although all of these earlier versions do support PNG in GUI mode (just not command line).  When Maxon updated C4D to version R14.034, the support for PNG was corrected.  If you would like to have your frames rendered as PNG you MUST select the R14 option from the renderer drop down.
