    Really good addon! I've used it to render huge still images in pieces. This way I can avoid problems if render crashing in some parts. It also make it easily to render in pieces. Just use keyframe method and put different border values to every keyframes. Thanks for creating this.

    This is truly one of the smartest and most thoughtful addons ever. A really really huge lifesaver.

    My only note on why I didn't give 5 stars: when the tracked object leaves the camera view, the border tries to see it and draws a border anyways. It's an edge case and usually not an issue. I ran into this edge case with a group of objects, and so I had to manually keyframe the render border (also a feature of the addon!).
    Otherwise, it saves me lots of time as a VFX artist! Very simple and easy to use.

      Hi, thanks for the feedback. I guess a solution would be to try and generate blank images for frames where the objects are completely outside the camera view. I'll have to see if that is possible.

      Feel free to use the 'Create Message' button to the right or contact me at [email protected] if you have any further ideas about how this feature could work.

    I was rendering a heavy industrial simulation for a customer and this was a lifesaver. However, at least with my scene, the render time with the animated renderborder seems to be slightly higher than with the regular, "manually" set border. Also, I wasn't able to cancel the render once it started. Still, an amazingly useful plugin, with extremely reasonable price.

    this addon is amazing! I can't recommend it enough. The price is totally fair too.
