Render element with vray frame buffer not saved in deadline 8

Postby Strob » Fri Jun 23, 2017 10:09 pm

Hi,

with latest version of Vray 3.60.01, the render element are not saved when submited by deadline. It works locally. Do you have any idea why. I saw the other thread about deadline 9 sp4 but I'm with deadline 8 and I was not planning to upgrade. Do you know what could be the cause.

I notice you are running a as yet un-released version of V-Ray (3.6 = nightly build). I suspect there might be an issue in this V-Ray version. If you downgrade and use the latest public version is everything ok?

I will have to try to reinstall the old version on my farm when I can find some time to do it... I know chaosgroup added an option to save render element in separate folder but I don't know since when exactly. I tried with this option on and off and it didn't save the elements either way.

Finally 3.6 was just officially released today. Do you want me to try with the official version from today?

So I just installed the official V-Ray 3.60.01 released today with the same result. I tried different pathing options with always the same result.

I just found out that with the official release, if i uncheck separate folder in V-Ray it will work and save the elements! So there must be something conflicting with deadline with that new option in the V-Ray VFB. At least I will be able to work by unckecking it.

With Chaosgroup I discovered that submitting via the monitor (3ds max submission) with "Separate folder" checked is working (saving each element in separate folders). So it must be some bug in the submission script.

Curses. Well, I'll add it to the dev system and tag Mike on that guy. We just solved an RE issue in Maya the other week. :)

Chaosgroup asked me to forward you this info to help you fix the problem:
"OK, here is what we found. The render submission script stores the entire render output in a temporary folder in a correct order (With Separate folder enabled - all elements in separate directory ), but the problem comes when those files need to be moved to the destination folder. The script is not able to find the files inside the those folders, which makes the destination folder empty."

Thanks for the info! If you disable "Local Rendering" under the Options tab in SMTD, that should fix you for now, whilst we fix this small issue. Thanks!
