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

afrender (submission script) uses 3dsmaxcmd to render via command line.
Can 3dsmaxcmd ask vray plugin to reload each frame?
Can we use some other command that can restart some plugin?
This questions are for 3dsmax users.

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

Hi.
You want to restart machine after each task rendered?
Try to do it via command wrapper first.
You can write a simple vray.cmd that will run vray first, than run a command to restart machine.

Re: convert: not found

Afrender tries to create thumbnails from rendered image files.
It uses ImageMagick "convert" tool to resize and convert to jpeg:

Almost all Linux distributions has this package in native repository.

Re: $JOB variable

Hi. This is a solution. And i do not think that it is brutal. Now i see that Afanasy ROP needs an "extra environment" and "extra command arguments" parameter that can be used in wrappers. I am using wrapper too, to setup software in different ways. Any command has a working directory where it will b...

Re: prefer blocks

Code: Select all

How would I signal the dispatcher to fill all the rz machines before dispatching to lws machines?
- set to all "rz" machines greater priority.

Re: prefer blocks

Sorry.
Render priority is not in a farm setup, but can be adjusted from a GUI.
But all jobs will follow same render priority.
You can't setup one jobs to prefer one group of renders, and other jobs to prefer other.
For this, you should wait at least 2.3.x, that will not be in the near feature.

Re: use node frame range

"Render selected..." can render selected Afanasy nodes (not only write nodes).
Each Afanasy node can have own frame range.

I just tried to do it, but it fails to work. The error is printed in script editor. You can fix it yourself.
Also you share fix with others on GitHub.
