Unreal - Deadline failed to render

Hi guys,

I tried to render an Unreal sequence using Deadline, as with my previous post, but this time round, after playing with some settings and reinstalling Unreal, I found that Unreal repeatedly crashed and found this in the log:

Scheduler Thread - Render Thread 0 threw a major error:

What’s going on? What can I do to fix this?

Thanks in advance for the help

It’s hard to say without the whole log. What we do know is that Unreal returned 3 as its exit code, and Deadline’s Unreal plugin expects that 0 is a success and everything else is a failure.

I’d hope to see at the bottom of the task report to what Unreal printed before it crashed. Ideally that’ll be something we can look up.
