EVOLVOTRON_RENDER(1)		  Evolvotron		  EVOLVOTRON_RENDER(1)

NAME
       evolvotron_render - Render an evolvotron	function tree to an image.

SYNOPSIS
       evolvotron_render [options] imagefile.[png|ppm]

DESCRIPTION
       evolvotron_render  reads	an evolvotron image function from its standard
       input and renders it to an image	in the file specified  (suffix	deter-
       mines type, defaults to ppm if not recognised).

       Image  functions	can be obtained	by saving them from the	evolvotron ap-
       plication, or using evolvotron_mutate.

       See the evolvotron manual (accessible from the evolvotron application's
       Help menu) for more information on image	functions.

COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS
       -f, --frames
	    frames  Generates  multi-frame  animations.	  .fnnnnnn is inserted
	    into the specified filename	(before	the filetype suffix, if	 any).
	    You	 can  use this on functions which weren't evolved in animation
	    mode, but there's no guarantee they	have  any  interesting	time/z
	    variation.

       -h, --help
	    Display a summary of command-line options and exit.

       -j, --jitter
	    Enable sample jittering.

       -m, --multisample
	    multisample	 Enables  antialiased  rendering.   This specifies the
	    size of the	sub-pixel sampling grid, so  1	provides  the  default
	    one-sample-per-pixel  behaviour,  while  4 provides	16 samples per
	    pixel on a 4x4 grid.   Unlike  the	main  evolvotron  application,
	    there is no	upper limit, but of course rendering time increases as
	    the	square of this number.

       -o, --output
	    imagefile.[ppm|png]	This option is an  alternative	to  specifying
	    the	output filename	as a positional	argument.

       -s, --size
	    widthxheight  Specify  resolution  of  output  image.  Defaults to
	    512x512.

       -v, --verbose
	    Verbose mode; useful for monitoring	progress of large renders.

EXAMPLES
       evolvotron_mutate -g | evolvotron_render	-s 1024x1024 function.ppm
