Re: Max V-Ray: better to use 1 frame by task

Now it seems to work very well by just putting 1 frame by task in each of my jobs. That way the scene is reloaded every frame. But I would like to try to restart only V-Ray to see if I can gain performance (and not the entire machine).

Re: Max V-Ray: better to use 1 frame by task

I wonder if it has something to do with V-Ray. For example deadline has a feature to restart only the renderer between frames: (from deadline doc:) Restart Renderer Between Frames: This option can be used to force Deadline to restart the renderer after each frame to avoid some potential problems wit...

Max V-Ray: better to use 1 frame by task

I had a lot of problems with task with multiple frames where some slaves will render the first frame ok and then they were missing cache and texture for the subsequent frames. But since I set my tasks at 1 frame by task, everything slave render fine! I use 3ds max 2018, V-Ray 3.60.04 and windows 10,...

Frame list

Hi,

Is there a way to specify a frame list with the starter? Instead of just setting a start and end frames, something like (3,8,15,34-45,89-100).

1 Salve just completing tasks without rendering.

Hi, i have a first production render going on now. Out of 13 slaves 1 is not behaving correctly: that one just complete the task without rendering them. And there is no error in the log, the tasks are just logged as finished with success. In the render.cmd window, it just output the same as the othe...

Re: Task progress 0% and missing options on right click

I think the problem lies in the fact that when rendering with 3ds max and V-Ray, the 3ds max output file checkbox must be off and instead we use the V-Ray VFB output file checkbox to output the file by V-Ray directly instead. So when we do that the submission script in afstarter does not see the ima...
