How to separate render job to a specified render machines

Post by ramdhandwi » Mon May 11, 2020 7:53 am

Hello,

I am not a programmer, but I use Afanasy frequently.

Now, I am facing new problem. I have 5 fast computers to render and 10 slow computers. I want to set fileA (mostly environments) for faster computers, and fileB (characters and props only) for slow computers. Is it doable to do such things?
I tried to use host mask, but I don't find anywhere to set the computer host. It would be helpful to know how to set this up.

Thanks.

Hi!

You can set it during job construction, via JSON protocol, within GUI.

ps
Remember that hosts mask is a regular expression.

Hi Timur, thank you very much.

It turns out, I made a mistake when naming the computers, I have the same name for all the fast computers. So when I use "Hosts Mask", afanasy didn't recognize it. So... I go to my server and change the name of my renderer by going to the "c:\temp\afanasy\renders\0". all the renderer data are located there. I change it manually one by one. and then after that, I can use the "hosts mask" again.

now, I can submit a job and also assign which renderer is going to do it by grouping them by name.

Afanasy is awesome! thanks again.
