I've written some batch scripts which automate maya through the Render application. The batch scripts are working over a series of different scenes and render all of them out.
For some of the models, I would like render the animations in the scene multiple times with different textures applied. Right now, my only solution is create another scene, apply the new texture and include the copied scene in the batch scripts.
Is there another, better way to do this? Ideally, some command line arg that said use texture X for this render would be lovely.
