afterFX script not sending job

Post by firemist » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:36 pm

Probably a configuration I messed up, but:
I had the AfterFX script (afanasy.jsx) working for a couple of tests, but today it is not working. The jobs do not show up on afanasy server (using Watch to check).
I upgraded to version 2.2.3 on the server and my workstation to see if that would help (it did not).

The status of components:
render machines: windows 7-64
workstation: windows 7-64
afserver machine: linux (ubuntu 14). afserver is also file server for the domain/workgroup.
afcmd db_check reports successful
workstation Keeper:afanasy-watch brings up window; users and render machines show up (almost instantly), but submitted jobs do not.

I'm excited about this software, and would appreciate any help. The most recent log file (after clean restart) is below. Happy to provide any other info.
thanks,
Jeff B.

afterFX script not sending job - SOLVED

Post by firemist » Thu Nov 09, 2017 2:17 pm

A follow-up to my previous post.
It was "pilot error" -- I see that I should launch the host graphics program via Keeper, so that the software knows the environment it is running in. Working fine now.

Yes.
Or you can use manual environment setup:

Thank you again. I'm very happy to have found CGRU. Particularly because AfterEffects has not supported multi-processing for the last 3 versions. Used to work well, now it is very necessary to have a network render solution. Since CGRU also works with 3ds Max (my other main software), it is a very good option for me.
Do you accept (small) donations to keep the project going? I haven't seen a mention of that. But could be more "pilot error".

best regards,
Jeff

Thank you!

I have some thoughts to accept donations, for example for some goal, for this site hosting, or even for buying new notebook for programming.
But for now have no time to organize it.

Thanks -- I have been having trouble sending a payment the past couple of days; I have contacted PayPal about it.

Hi.
I never used PayPal before.
So this is my first experience.
Please keep me informed.

<insert cursing here>

Bah-- I checked with PayPal, and they only offer cryptic replies:
==========================
"Dear Jeffrey S Brown,
Thank you for getting back to us. I understand that you would like to use your PayPal account to make this transaction. For security purposes, our security risk rules, while in place for the good of everyone, do occasionally affect an account in good standing such as yours.
We value your business and are committed to your satisfaction, so we'd like to suggest you try your transaction again with an alternate method of payment or contact the recipient and find another payment solution.
I'd like to assure you though that your security is our top priority over convenience. We therefore must take security measures to keep PayPal one of the safest online payment methods.
It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing PayPal.
Sincerely,
(xxxxx)"
==========================

So, for some reason they will not say, I cannot make a payment to you. If you would like to offer an alternative method, I'm happy to consider. It may not be worth it, as I just wanted to donate US$30 to your work.
Best regards,
Jeff
