kick -of %s flag

Hi

Does " -of %s" flag in kick.exe change to origanl format from exr to jpg for example?

I can change only the filename not the format

here is my kick command:

"kick -i budha.ass -r 640 480 -as 3 -o statue -of tif"

The rendered image is always exr format

any clarifications about this?

thanks

I don't think -of is very useful. If you really need to change output formats, you may need to use Python and the Arnold API.

The last time I tested -of, my tests showed that this works if your .ass has no options.outputs parameter:

kick -i some.ass -of tif -o test
Also, note that -o works only for the beauty AOV.

Thanks Stephen for your answer
but no matter what flag I put -of tif, -of jpg, -of png: kick always return exr format , also if I remove the options.outputs parameter, it pick up the default name of my scene and the rendered file is always .exr.

I tested it and it works. But so what, it doesn't seem useful because it works only when there is no options.output parameter.

Thanks for your input Stephan

Interesting, so I have to manually remove the Options.output from the ass file, and then reintroduce them in kick to get it to work!

Thanks again
