C4D Watch folder

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to set up a watch folder for C4D? I would like to save a file with assets from my home PC to my Drive or Dropbox, and have my work computer see it, pick it up and start rendering away at it so its ready for when I get to work in the morning. This is the dream. I know such a thing is technically possible since some render farms do it, but I dont know if anyone else has a similar solution?

Hi, 

I haven't tried this myself but off the top of my head 

you can use the watchdog module in Python then render it using the commandline version of C4D.
