I want to build a personal rendering farm. When I tested Thinkbox Deadline 10.0 + Sketchup Pro 2017 + VRay for SketchUp 3.60 (vray_adv_36003_sketchup_win.exe), it caused SketchUp to crash. The specific process is as follows:
My ultimate goal is to submit the *.skp file to the Deadline Repository, then the Deadline Repository will assign the rendering task to my own Deadline Slave, Slave will call her own SketchUp for rendering, and finally output the rendering of multiple scenes. Link Me
TEST1: I found that Deadline + SketchUp just rendered multiple images of the same scene, which is not what I want (I am a new SketchUp, not very skilled in SketchUp operations). Until then I found out that VRay for SketchUp has a "Batch Render” mode, can meet my needs very well. So I made TEST2 again;
TEST2: I tested Batch Render directly in the Sketchup software, and output a rendering of multiple scenes to meet my needs.
TEST3: Now I submit the *.skp file to the Deadline Repository, then check the Use VRay, When the Slave opens SketchUp for rendering, SketchUp will crash and test each time Will crash!!! And I tried to install vray_adv_40002_sketchup_win.exe, vray_adv_36003_sketchup_win.exe, vray_adv_34004_sketchup_win.exe all three versions will crash
Deadline Job Report : 2019-09-23 14:10:09: 0: INFO: Process exit code: -3 –> Please refer to the attachment for details.<<Job Reports.log>> Job Reports.log.py (8.4 KB)
I found out that Deadline called a through the Deadline Slave.log message. <<SketchUpDeadline.rb>> , SketchUpDeadline.rb.py (9.9 KB)
I printed some debugging information in this Ruby script.”"<-------------------------sheldon test xxx------------------------->"”, and tried to find out what went wrong.
Finally, I found that the script did not execute when it executed VRayForSketchUp.setOutputPath() on line 44. An error should occur when executing this function.
My system environment is as follows:
Window 10 Education x64
Intel® Core™ i5-8400 CPU @ 2.8GHz
256G SSD + 2T HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 *2
The following software is installed on my system.
Deadline Repository 10.0.6.3 + Deadline Client 10.0.6.3 (Because I am testing, I installed the Repository and Slave on the same host, which is OK.)
3ds Max 2016 + VRay for 3ds max
SketchUp Pro 2017 + VRay for SketchUp 3.60
I hope to get your help and support, this is very important to me, thank you very much…
