HOUDINI. Rendering with frame increment with many frames per task

I’ve made an update to the Houdini plugin and submitter. Jobs with a frame increment >1 will now be submitted as a full frame range, but Houdini will render only the appropriate frames without restarting the plugin.

For example, previously a frame range of 1-20 with an increment of 2 would submit as: 1, 3, 5, etc. Now it submits as 1-20, but renders only 1, 3, 5, etc., with “Frame Increment is 2” added to the comment. This should save a lot of time on high-fps projects.

Currently, this works only for the Deadline ROP, not the UI submitter, but I might add that in the future. Please let me know if you encounter any issues. It’s for Deadline

I still need to figure out how to resubmit such a job with increment 1 directly from Deadline, for example, when a client approves and we need to deliver all frames.
These files also include Redshift % progress made by smbell I hope that’s ok.


UPDATE 04.07.24: I found a bug and fixed it. Files are updated.
