How are you submitting the job?
I just tried this, I’ve not played with tiling since Redshift in Houdini, which previously didn’t do tiling but now does (but maybe not via Deadline so I need to play with it again!)
I created a simple scene, a torus, a light and a camera all totally default
Add a Mantra ROP and go to the ‘Images’ > ‘Output’ tab section
check ‘Tiled Render’
Then submit to Deadline via the top menu
(I changed the output path from $HIP to absolute //server/share/ else it fails)
It didn’t work, I got a single image out, if you hover over the ‘Tiled Render’ for the tool tip it shows the tiled render is for HQueue
So I then unchecked tiled on the Mantra ROP and re-submit the scene but this time used the Deadline submitter rollout (unchecking Jigsaw that needs a Draft lic)
Submit and this worked, I got the job with dependent job in the monitor
Tiles rendered out
I’ve not tested it via the IFR to Mantra submission yet
Sorry, I reread this and it looks like you’re looking for the tiled IFD, I don’t think it does a tiled piece of the IFD, but the rendered tiles them self should be individual pieces which are then assembled and deleted unless you uncheck this option.
I also don’t get any -t switch and am wondering if this is specific to HQueue?
Tiled render can also be enabled using
-t command line option to mantra, which can be used to render a tile locally without having to generate an IFD for each tile with Tiled render enabled.
The way it’s worded makes it sound like it doesn’t generate IFD’s for each tile
