Re: CGRU is too fair!

You can up the user's priority.

Seems to act more or less god-like here when set to 255.

Re: resolving job names after submit

I hear you -- but it does introduce a strange condition. job1.name = "job1" job1.block1.name = "foo" job1.block2.name = "bar" job1.block2.dependMask = "foo*" job2.name = "job1-1" job2.block1.name = "foo" job2.block2.name = "bar" job2.block2.dependMask = "foo*" if both jobs are running at the same ti...

resolving job names after submit

Is it possible to resolve the job name once a job has been submitted? Alternatively, is it possible to have dependency masks that are not strings (job id, or something of that nature)? In Houdini we often build a reusable network of dependencies to execute on the farm. if we resubmit the network bef...

Re: Control over ifdgen chunk size

I could have swore I got this to work before -- but for some reason, i'm unable to do so right now.

What settings do I need to set on the afanasy rop in order for it ONLY generate ifds, and not perform a mantra render?

Re: Allow DeepWrite Class nodes to execute

Thanks Timur,

And thanks for pointing me at GitHub. I keep meaning to learn about it but never seem to find the time... As you might have guessed from the hacky code, software development is not really my forté - I'm more of a motion blur nerd ;)

Cheers,

Allow DeepWrite Class nodes to execute

Heya Timur, We've recently had to modify render.py in the nuke plugins folder, line 166 to: if writenode.Class() != 'Write' and writenode.Class() != 'DeepWrite': errorExit('Node "%s" class is not "Write".' % xnode, True and a few small tweaks to afanasy.py in $GCRU_LOCATION/plugins/nuke/scripts/cgru...

Re: Control over ifdgen chunk size

You are right -- it's possible.

It might be convenient (read: more discoverable for new users) if you allowed it all to happen in one node since you DO allow the 'separate render' from inside one node.

Just a suggestion. :D

Control over ifdgen chunk size

Heya Timur, It would be very beneficial to be able to control the "frames per task" parameter separately for the ifdgen stage, and the mantra stage. As you know, the ifdgen stage is relying on engine licenses, while mantra itself is free. I'd like to be able to submit a 1 frame /task job for mantra ...
