Maya projects path error

Houdini ocean geo cache render issues

I am rendering scene with a large ocean from the shelf. I am pretty sure all my paths are correct using the $HIP variable and using a specific project directory.

Re: Run batch file before and after job

Thanks. Where would I place this? Or is this a custom render command script?

Run batch file before and after job

Is there a way to automatically run a launch command on all render nodes before a render node starts rendering a new job then run another launch command on all render nodes after it finishes rendering the job?
