C4D batch render support


#1

Hello,

Is the c4d batch render option still supported with Deadline 10? Is it recommended to be using it when submitting renders?

When we have it checked at submission, the render ends up failing. I’ve removed the c4d commandline path from the c4dbatch installation paths, as suggested in this post. But the same issue occurs.

We’re not setting any plugin/scripts environment variables on the slave or workstation

I’ve also tried trouble-shooting locally via command prompt, and while that still fails, it produces the error below:

Warning: Unknown arguments: -DeadlineConnect 51390 523915167951 'C:\Users\techop\AppData\Local\Thinkbox\Deadline10\slave\RENDER029\jobsData\5c194b5acb2e7016647d01a1\importTest_tempm76ku0\importCheck.txt'

Any thoughts or insight into why this is happening would be greatly appreciated. I’d be happy to provide any further information if needed.

Environment Specs:

Summary

Deadline Client Version: 10.0.23.4 Release (e0d42871d)
Repository Version: 10.0.22.3 (7607266eb)

Windows 10 (workstation) & Windows 7 (slave)
C4D R19 & C4D R20 (Standard Renderer) (No plugins except for deadline submitter)

Thanks in advance,
-Alex

Hello!

Yes C4D Batch is supported in Deadline 10. Can you please provide the full job report from the batch submission?

Does the job complete successfully when submitting with Batch disabled? If not, please send that job report as well. You will only be able to troubleshoot locally using the Non-Batch submission executable and argument.

Regards,

Charles

Hey Charles,

Thank you for the prompt response! The same job will render successfully with the batch plugin disabled. I’ve added the failed batch plugin job below.

I should note the slave has c4d plugins installed on it, but the actual job is submitted from a vanilla c4d without any plugins (except for the deadline submission plugin). Hope this makes sense.

Please let me know if there is anything further I can provide or try.

Best,

#4

Redshift is the renderer?

Looks like there is a complaint about the installed driver version.

TFD ERROR: CUDAError(35) in Core\ui\wx_plugin_app.cc(182): CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version

What is the Redshift version installed on your render nodes?


#5

We’re using the c4d standard renderer for this scene. Redshift has not been installed on the slave or workstation.

The Redshift/Cuda error also appears on the successful, non-batch plugin job. Below is the render log from a successful, non-batch plugin job.

Can you provide a scene that re-creates so I can dig into the issue on my side?

Regards,

Hello cmoore,

Happy New Year!

I’m sorry for the delay in response, I’ve been OOTF the past couple of weeks. I’ve attached the C4D scene I’ve been using for a base test. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide!

RDN0010_DEV_v004.zip (66.8 KB)

Best,
-Alex


#8

Hmm. If I were to guess here, I expect that the error does close Cinema 4D, but when batch mode is disabled we don’t care as long as C4D exits with a non-zero exit code. I’ll discuss with @cmoore but have you tried running a render from within the Cinema 4D gui? We might give it a try here as well.

Update: We’re also suspicious of this -redshift-log-console argument it’s complaining about…


#9

Hey Alex,

I gave your scene a test with C4DR19 and had no issues. I did not get the -redshift-log warning as you did.

Regards,

Charles


#10

Hey cmoore,

Thank you for testing the scene out on your end. I appreciate your time looking into this! We were able to make some progress after digging around a bit.

We found the RedShift error was caused by the verbosity level getting set in the configure plugins for Cinema4D & Cinema4DBatch. Not sure if this was accidentally set at some point or is a default. Setting it to “None” removed the RedShift error from the logs, but we got a new error (log file is below).

C4D was unable to locate DeadlineConnect.pyp. This is a known issue in R18 and R19 for Cinema4DBatch, please go to the C4D FAQ in the Deadline documentation for a workaround.

We followed the description from the Cinema4D Errors Messages & Meanings. And the solution ended up being to copy the DeadlineConnect.pyp file to the plugins directory (per the link above) located in the c4d install location. Afterwards, the batch works as expected with no errors.

Just out of curiosity, do you know why copying the DeadlineConnect.pyp to a default plugin directory works?

There wasn’t a C4D_PLUGINS_DIR env variable present on the machine. And we updated our C4D to R19.068. My (minor) consideration is having to manually track that file when updating Deadline in the future.

Best,
