Hello, my brothers/sisters/others in arms of the well-documented Deadline-API,
I am writing to you because I have a dream.
I am pretty new to Deadline so I am looking for some ideas or hints to solve my idea:
A Job that dynamically changes the frames a task has to calculate when one node is done but others are still rendering.
E.g I have 5 slaves (everyone performing a task) which are rendering with a chunk-size of 5. Slave 1,2,3,4 are done. Slave 5 is still rendering at frame 21 due to the bad luck of some stuff that happens in the frames.
I want slave 1,2,3,4 to split the remaining 4 frames (22,23,24,25) between each other so the Job is done quicker. So the chunk-size kind of dynamically gets reduced.
I am thankful for any answer that might lead up some workflows and/or scripting ideas.
Whoever answers, feel kissed.
