Re: Run substeps on the farm

Yes, indeed, that is what I'm about to setup. I'm shifting time of my geometry export to put everything back to full frames. Thanks for your feedback!

Run substeps on the farm

Hi there! I would like to know how I can run substeps geo baking in parallel on the farm. It works on full frames, by setting the geometry ROP to 'Render Current Frame' and on my Afanasy to 'Render Frame Range'. This creates a task per frame that generates my geo file on disk in parallel. If I set t...

Re: Run ROP subnetwork with shell node inside

Hi!

Mmmh, interesting. While trying to put together a simple example file, it seems that it actually works! I made probably another mistake when putting together my first test. I'm sorry for the noise.

Greets,

Run ROP subnetwork with shell node inside

Hi there! I would like to setup some custom ROP nodes using a ROP subnetwork with a shell ROP node inside. On that shell ROP node, I can use the different script parms to run Python code. This approach works locally. When I hit the 'Render' button of my subnetwork, my code gets executed. Now, I woul...

Re: Animated Alembic setup

Hi!

Sorry for my late answer. I got stuck with other things and could now finally take a look at this again. And yes, when using an Alembic ROP in the ROP context, it seems to work.

Re: Animated Alembic setup

Hi Timur!

Yes, it seems to rewrite the entire file on each frame. When I launch the job locally, my file size grows constantly but when running on the farm with CGRU, the file size starts from 0 for each frame. So, is the problem on the CGRU side or in my Houdini graph setup?

Re: Animated Alembic setup

Hi!

I'm not really sure with what you mean by 'watching the file'. How do you want me to distinguish and update and a recreation of the file? Sorry, I'm not an IT specialist.

Greets,

Re: Animated Alembic setup

So, I continued my little research and I don't know if that is related to CGRU or Houdini, but when I run the abc writing job on the farm, the time per frame increases with the number of frames to render: 20 frames: 5m22 --> 16s per frame 30 frames: 11m34 --> 23s per frame 40 frames: 20m52 --> 31s p...

Re: Animated Alembic setup

And what I forgot is that I do not have the same effect when running the ROP locally. Every frame takes more or less the same time.
