Thanks for reaching us out!
You are right, there is no option at the moment to create jobs by command line. That is why we developed Scene Manager where you can prepare numerous jobs for batch rendering.
Of course we are curious how your own submitter works and what are the benefits so we’d love to take a closer look. Maybe it could be easily integrated as a tailor made option.
The good news is that the new version of Render Manager is around the corner. The closed beta testing will start next week so I gladly recommend giving it a try.
If you are interested please send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you shortly.
So my suggestion is to take a look at the Pulze Scene Manager as well. It is the perfect solution for scene preparation. You can predefine your scenes with all the variables and outputs and it seamlessly works together with the Render Manager. On top of that it provides instant visual feedback for you. It is made to make the life of the Artists easier.
So I gladly recommend trying out the complete Scene Manager + Render Manager workflow. It is a game changer

Please also let me highlight the selling points of Render Manager:
Maximize the utilization of your farm : “Automatic resource allocation” and “Requirement based Node filtering” provide maximized capacity utilization. If you like micro management then you have the option to manually control everything but RM is capable of automatically distributing all the jobs and filling up the gaps for you.
Get instant visual feedback on the fly : You can check each and every frame’s progress, remaining time, and even a snapshot of the current state of the image
Tailor made for Artists : It is made for the new generation of Artists. So it has a quick learning curve and it is very comfortable to use.
A hardware and software management tool : It keeps track of all your PC’s stats, installed DCCs, render engines and plugins.
So again, I’d love to have a discussion about the details so please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
