Draft Assembler job failing

We have a job on our farm sent from the max submitter script to render a large image into tiles and then assemble the tiles into a single image with draft. However, the draft job continues to fail because of an issue with the ‘six.moves’ python dependency.

We’re currently using Deadline 10.1.19.4

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Anyone? Should I be asking my question elsewhere?

Additionally, Python is not installed on any of the machines I’m trying to run this job on, and relies completely on Deadlines implementation.

After adding PYTHONPATH=C:/Program Files/Thinkbox/Deadline10/bin/pythonsync to the job settings, the dependency was discovered, and the plugin finished. I don’t think this was a problem caused by me as I’ve reinstalled everything from scratch and reset to default settings.

I’ve tried adding the pythonsync folder to the Python search path inside of the deadline repository settings and the workers still refuse to discover the folder when using the draft assembler.

Is Draft applying the PYTHONPATH given to it by deadline as it should? Something isn’t right here, and I think it’s a bug on Deadline/Drafts end.

It seems that the default PYTHONPATH for newer Deadline is wrong. There are other missing/wrong directories in there. I will create a new thread for this.
