Deadline CommandScript Submit Job



Houdini Sim need 0.25 or 0.1 increment ,but this don‘t submit
I try use Deadline Monitor commandscript submit job. success
but i use python api submit , “Plugin”:“CommandScript” .Error:The empty path name is illegal.
I use cmd submit ,Error:Required job info key “Plugin” not found
How should we solve this problem?


In Tools > Configure Plugins > Houdini you will find a field for the version of Houdini Sim you are using. Add the new version of Houdini as a path here. The slave looks at this list of paths to execute the binary when the plugin is loaded.


C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 17.0.000\houdini\python2.7libs\

Add an additional entry or change to:

C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 17.0.26\8houdini\python2.7libs\




I set this up.but don’t output decimal sim. Whenever I set the increment to 0.1 or 0.25, the task cannot be submitted.


Maybe related to this? Support for caching houdini fractional frames


Yes.I found a better way.I try use commandscript submit fractional success.

“C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 16.5.378\bin\hython.exe” -c “hou.hipFile.load(‘L:/TEST/deadlinetest.hip’);node=hou.node(‘obj/geo1/filecache1/render’);node.render(frame_range=(1,10,0.25),verbose=True,output_progress=True)”

use Monitor -> Submit -> Miscellaneous -> CommandScript .

but i need use python api submit commandScript.
How should we solve this problem?
