Slaves keep picking up jobs from the wrong pools

I have a couple of Pools set up(Max, Maya, after effects) with some systems rendering just max or just After effects but when I submit a job to a Max pool I’ll get systems set to After Effects pools only rendering it any way. How do I stop them trying to render?

Hey, it sounds like you’ve got Pools and Groups mixed up!

The short explanation is that Pools help set priority, and Groups limit hardware/software.

The long explanation is in this amazing blog post that I highly highly highly recommend reading, as it’s so easy to get your wires crossed working in this part of Deadline. I know I’m guilty of it!

Give that a read and get back to us if you’ve still got any unanswered questions.
