Batch Render - Overwrite

This is one of those things I have never thought about but suddenly realised it might/should be something that can be changed.

If you are rendering in Batch, is there a way to set it to overwrite any existing render with the same name? It is probably something obvious that I can’t work out.

Another reason to write instead of render.

There isn’t a way with managed media as far as I know…


There’s sort of a way . . .
You can use Smart Replace in Conform. You will still get multiple renders in the reel or library where you designate your renders to land, but you can keep the segment you created the batch group with in a separate reel and that will update with each render. On occasion you can empty out the renders reel to knock down the clutter and free up storage space.

Should this be a Feature Request perhaps?
