Houdini - Redshift Tile Rendering



I just started using Deadline with Houdini and Redshift. I am running into the following error when i try to open the Jigsaw window in Tile Rendering with Redshift:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “E:/DeadlineRepository10/submission/Houdini/Main\SubmitHoudiniToDeadline.py”, line 972, in OpenJigsaw
camera = rop.parm( “camera” ).eval()
AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘eval’

If i use the same camera with a Mantra ROP it works just fine. Normal Tile Rendering without Jigsaw doesn’t work either. Am i missing something?

Thank you in advance for any kind of help!


It looks like we’re not finding the camera on that ROP. This sounds familiar, but the error “such and such object has no attribute” is pretty common. What version of Deadline are you on?


I am on version


Hmm. I’ll have to cut a ticket. I found the code in question. I’m not sure if we can support Redshift yet and I’ll have to loop in the dev team to find out.

Update: Does Redshift support region rendering? I found a note internally from two years ago for Maya saying it wasn’t implemented then and I made it about two pages into Google for “redshift region rendering” and didn’t find a single page saying it was possible.


Yes, Redshift does have Region Rendering. And i’ve also heard that people use Redshift + Deadline Tile Rendering successfully.


I’ve heard back from the dev team that we don’t officially support Redshift tile rendering in Houdini just yet, but it is supported in Mantra. Do you know how other folks have been doing it?


Unfortunately i don’t. I’ll ask around! Thank you for the quick help.


Hello is this still the case? Redshift tile rendering not supported in Houdini?
