Configure dependencies

Hi,

I looked and read but cannot find the info I am looking for.

I am sending Redshift render jobs from Maya (a maya batch that exports a Redshift proxy per frame, a redshift job that renders the frame).

I would like the Redshift job to start when 20% of the Mayabatch job is done, but I don’t know how to set it by default, I always need to adjust and release the pending job manually for each render.

Where can I set this behavior by default?

Many thanks!

Anybody has an idea if it can be done? A workaround?

Thanks

I think you’d have to modify the Maya submitter slightly, to include a setting for JobDependencyPercentage: https://docs.thinkboxsoftware.com/products/deadline/10.0/1_User%20Manual/manual/manual-submission.html#dependencies

Alternatively you can use an event script to catch all jobs of a certain type and automatically tweak the percentage setting.

If none of that makes any sense to you, let me know which option sounds like the smallest headache and I’m sure we can get you pointed in the right direction.

Cheers

Hi danielskovli!

Thank you so much for the information, this is really helpful. I will probably look at both options.

Have a great day!
