Hi, I'd like to suggest adding an audio notification to the 'The selected output module will overwrite a file that already exists.' modal dialog box that pops up when rendering from render queue.

 

There's been times when I've pressed render, locked my screen and walked away, while actually leaving AE sat on this dialog and not rendering. That's on me, but if there was an audio notification when this popped up it would be a nice quality of life impreovement that would help reduce these happenings. Like a car beeping if you've left your lights on.

 

Cheers!

Hello @Mike Choo,

Just thinking on this, would it be benificial to add a notification to this - i.e. the render notifications that notify on complete, error, and completed queue? Possibly we could add a notification that the queue is paused due to a dialog that needs to be addressed?

All the best,

Hi Jessica,

Are you thinking as in a system notification (e.g. the lower-right corner notifications in Windows)? In which case, I would personally see the benefit of that, as they seem to come with audio notifications and are fairly hard to miss. If I've misunderstood please let me know!

 

(As a side note, in the Beta I'm using (23.6.0 Build 46) there is no audio 'ping' one render queue completion, but I do get the noise when using stable).

 

Another related thing that would be really useful is an option to dismiss all 'overwrite...' dialogs at once. The use case would be that often I have a set of VFX / Comp renders that I need to replace by re-rendering over them, and the current behaviour seems to be one dialog box for each instance of overwriting a render. If there was a checkbox for 'dismiss all of these alerts' that would be a good QoL change.

 

Anything else I can answer please let me know!
