Is there a way to disable this option? I dont need it


Tools > Configure Plugins (enable Super User mode)

Under the Houdini plugin and scroll to the bottom, then set to False

Yes, I had already tried that option but I believe that just disables the custom path mapping, not the actual path mapping. So, sadly, it doesnt work.

Have you got any path mapping rules here: Deadline Monitor> Tool> Configure Repo Options> Mapped Paths? If you do not do any cross platform rendering and do not do any path translation then you can safely remove those rules.

I am just curious why do you need to stop it from happening is it because it is taking 7 minutes?

I do not have any custom paths. Everything is pretty much vanilla.

And yes, I need to stop it from happening because 7 extra minutes per frames is a lot. Just for a 240 render means I am having 28 lost hours just in loading times. (unless I render in batches of multiple frames, which is not the real solution as many times we are doing just test renders)
