In this tutorial we're going to be covering the use of the Batch Render tool.  The The Batch Render tool is useful when you have multiple scenes that need to be rendered out, but have objects that may change between scenes.  With Batch Render you can set up all of your scene tabs, and render each individual scene tab with the press of one button.  V-Ray also recognizes items turned off and on in each scene tab (our provided scene illustrates this) so, for example, if you have renderings for a client with different variations of a design to show, you can quickly and easily set up multiple renderings via Sketchups Scene Tabs, and just click Batch Render and walk away to let V-Ray do its thing.  

First lets review what the Batch Render tab looks like.  In your V-Ray Tool set you'll see a button labeled BR short for Batch Render (). 

By clicking this tool you will prompt the Batch Render function. The Batch Render function can be cancelled the same way cancelling any rendering is done, by closing the Frame Buffer window or using the cancel render button in the V-Ray Progress Window.

Now that we know where the Batch Render function is located and what it does, lets try it out. Download the test scene located here and lets get started. This folder contains all the necessary assets needed to run a batch render in sketchup. You can find the final output files located in the Final Output folder, here you can see what the renders will look like based on the content provided.
