The export queue

The queue displays all export jobs waiting to be processed, as the progress of any ongoing exports. It also shows completed jobs, until you remove them.

The buttons in the export queue header bar are used to manage the items in the queue.

  • Remove finished jobs: Deletes all jobs currently in the queue which have been completed.
  • Start/Resume: When the queue is inactive, you will see this start button. Click it to begin processing all jobs in the queue marked Ready. Jobs are processed from the top of the list downward.
  • Pause: When the queue is active, you will see a pause button instead of the start button. Click it to start processing all jobs in the queue.

The queue

Details of each export job are shown in the queue.

  • Name: The name of the job is the project where it originates.
  • Type: The icon shown here indicates what type of export the job involves.
    • Single export: Indicates a canvas export, a single image containing the image which was visible on the canvas when the job was created. Single exports are added to the queue from the Edit tab, and process immediately.
    • Batch export: Indicates an export job containing one or more images, added to the queue from the Batch tab.
  • Progress: Shows the current status of the job or item.

    • Waiting: Indicates an image waiting for its turn to be exported.

    • * Rendering:* Indicates an image which is currently being processed. A blue progress bar behind the text dynamically updates to show the progress of the export.
    • Finished: An image which is completely exported.
  • Output location: The directory where the job will be saved, and the specific file name which will be used for each image.
