Batch it and watch it 0.1.0 (maya script)

This script allows you to see the outpot of the rendering process (images during rendering) using imf_disply, and it's working with passes, yet with render layers. "this is a simple version of the concept".

      1. on windows 7 <Enviroment Variables>, and in the <System Variables> section; add your maya bin folder path to the <path>.

      2. add     MI_MAYA_SOCKETS=1;    <--- this line to your <maya.env> "C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\maya",
         and you may need to add it inside the <maya.env> in the path "C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\maya\2012-x64" too.  
    note1: you have to render one test-render first -using render view- "NOT BATCH RENDER" ..
    note2: <file name prefix> must be added and frame animation ext. must be like this: <name.#.ext> (3rd one). then     you go..


copy and past <batchItWatchIt.mel> to your script folder..

1. open maya and then your scene.
2. render settings > file name prefix name your outpot file ..
3. set frame/animation ext. to <name.#.ext>
3. test it using render view (this is a must for only once atleast )
4. batchItWatchIt;

that's all..
