I’m thinking of developing my own tool, but before I go down that path I want to make sure some functionality isn’t already in Deadline.
I’d like a Deadline submitter that submit the scene along with any needed (local) assets.
I don’t believe this is possible with Deadline yet?
With the amount of remote working today, we do have users (myself included) working on local machines, and/or custom drives. While we can connect to Deadline over VPN and submit jobs, the render nodes naturally cannot access any assets or other files stored locally.
I’m first and foremost just looking for a Houdini export submitter. Export render files, and include necessary assets. Houdini’s python tools already make it fairly easy to get a list over all scene file references. Looks fairly straight forward to develop something there, but if anything already exists it’ll definitively save me some time
