Rendered images are made available to download as tasks finish. You have a few options for downloading files.
- A download manager with a graphical interface in the Companion App.
- Command-line downloader which is automatically installed when any plugin is installed.
If you have several jobs, or jobs with a large number of frames, we recommend you use the command-line downloader.
By default, rendered files are downloaded to the destination path specified during submission.
Once you have successfully downloaded the files for a task, its status changes to Downloaded in the Web UI.
Companion App Downloader¶
Conductor Companion provides a GUI for users who don't feel comfortable using the command line. The Companion App displays a panel for each job, which you can expand to check files' availability and manage downloads. See the Companion reference page for more information.
The downloader command can run in one of two modes: manual or daemon. Use manual mode to download files for a specific job, and use daemon mode to download files for all jobs as they become available.
# Download all files for job 00014.
conductor downloader --job_id 00014
# Download files for task 010 in job 00014.
conductor downloader --job_id 00014 --task_id 010
# To start the downloader in daemon mode, run it with no arguments.
