Is there a way I can Batch Render?

so last night I started rendering some 3d views for a friend's thesis project.
After 3 hours of settings and testing I finally achieved a render setting that was to my liking which ranges between 30 minutes to 1 hour 40 minutes.

So I set up 17 cameras (image attached) and I proceeded to open each one, click render (photo render projection camera icon), wait 50 minutes, save as.

open the next one, click render, wait 72 minutes, save as.

open the third one, click render, wait 38 minutes, save as.

open the fourth one, click render, wait 92 minutes, save as.

open the fifth one, click render, wait 48 minutes, save as.

open the sixth one, click render, wait 83 minutes, save as...

You see what I'm getting at? 17 renders x 50 avarage render time = 14.16 hours I could have used for something else.

how can I set it up so that I just leave it rendering on its own for how ever long it takes, without having to be present dealing with the hassle of having to start each individual render?

It can be done and it is easy:
0. Open the Organizer
1. Save Cameras (First Icon on Left Side) as Views (First Icon on right hand side) with their settings which include Layer Settings and Rendering Settings
2. You will create a Publisher (Last Icon on right side) were you will place this folder (now the second icon on the Right Side) as a shortcut and tell it the folder to save to.
3. Hit publish and go do something else.
Rushed with a project so somebody else might fill in the gaps

Or save a fly through of the cameras without the inbetween frames as JPEG.

From experience with flythrough rendering though: there's what seems like a memory leak, after x-amount (depending on modelsize, your computer memory etc etc) the computer runs out of memory and force quits ArchiCAD. This was last summer though, maybe it's been fixed since in the hotfixes.
