DuBlast is an add-on for Blender which makes it easy to create and play animation playblasts, without having to change any render or output setting.
Adds a new Animation Playblast to Blender which renders and automatically plays your animations.
Automatically burn useful metadata into the video
Include annotations in the video
Automatically save the video file next to the scene, in an animation-friendly, hand-crafted, fine-tuned light mp4 file optimized for frame-by-frame navigation, or any other format of your choice.
Use specific resolution and frame range for the animation playblast, without having to modify the scene settings.
It renders the animation with the current viewport settings, temporarily overriding the output settings. By default, it will render the animation with a resolution of 25% of the output dimensions, in the default temp folder for your system. It then automatically opens and plays the animation.
By default, the rendered animation is stored in an *MP4* file, with custom settings tweaked for better animation playback and seekability (it is easy to go frame by frame in these files).
You can adjust these and other settings for playblast creation in the Output Settings Tab of the Properties panel.
