Renderman 26.1 - Houdini 20.0.653 - Deadline 10.3.2.1

Hi All, I’m having an issue with Renderman 26.1 in Houdini

Export to rib works fine, RfM in Maya works fine, but RfH in Houdini just sits there in Deadline.

On Windows 10 it crashes and gives the generic memory error.

On Windows 11 it just sits there in Deadline

but if I run the command from Deadline in a command prompt it runs straight through

Have you tried logging onto that system and running the Houdini script directly on it?

yeah, that’s the last part, I’m using the same machine and sending back to myself, same profile/user everything. works in Houdini, works via commandline, but deadline just hangs it. I’ll try upping the logging in Deadline & Renderman and see if this reveals anything.

I’m testing on my laptop (win11) atm as two separate sites I’ve run this on (win10 1945/22H2) both give the memory error.

All work fine in Houdini itself (RfH), export to .rib and standalone works fine, and Maya (RfM) works fine in Maya and via Deadline.
