Output macros

The following "macros" can be inserted in the image and MXI output fields to create filenames based on different variables. They can be useful to make sure you don't override a previous render, or to keep track of which camera was used to render for example.

Example:

Myrender_%scenename%_%camera%.png may produce:

Myrender_thescene_camera1.png

 

The currently supported macros are:
