i’m trying to render a Maya-scene in Deadline with Redshift. Some of the asset come from an Arnoldsetup-
they contain some unsused nodes and attributes.
However everything is setup to render fine with Redshift and it works locally.
When i send such a file to Deadline i’m getting lot’s of errors like this one:
2019-07-26 15:14:26: 0: STDOUT: Error: file: …/Prop/houseA/houseA_Shading_v004.ma line 6163: The directionalLight ‘directionalLightShape4’ has no ‘ai_exposure’ attribute.
The last message before the render fails is:
2019-07-26 15:14:30: 0: STDOUT: Error: file: C:/Users/render/AppData/Local/Temp/tmp801D.tmp line 59: Cannot load scene "…/Prop/houseA/houseA_Shading_v004.ma". Please check the scene path, then try opening the scene on the machine which ran this job to troubleshoot the problem.
Looks like Deadline doesn’t load Arnold and so lot’s of unknown data exists.
I don’T know why this leads to a failing render.
If i clean the scene from all Arnold-data it works.
But this is quite tricky and time-consuming - i woudl prefer if Deadlien just renders it with Redshift and loads Arnold too.
Is there any workaround?
