How to install


If you downloaded portable version (zip file), then unpack downloaded zip archive and run “renderchan-cli.bat”.

If you downloaded installer (exe file), then run downloaded file, follow instruction on the screen and wait after installation is complete double-click on RenderChan icon on desktop.

It will open console window where you can run “renderchan” command with appropriate arguments. You can also drag files into console window to avoid entering long paths.

It is important to note that RenderChan package is expecting Blender/Synfig/Krita (or other supported animation software) installed into default locations. But if you have installed it into some other path, then you can edit relevant TXT files in “env” directory.


Required dependencies:

  • git
  • python3
  • python3-sqlite

Open terminal and run the following commands:

git clone $HOME/renderchan
echo "export PATH=\"\$HOME/renderchan/bin/:\$PATH\"" >> $HOME/.bash_profile

After that you need to re-login and then you can use “renderchan” command in the console.

To update for the latest version run the following:

cd $HOME/renderchan
git fetch
git reset --hard master
