  1. Greetings! To anyone using Deadline for rendering Mantra, could you advise what your successfull workflow is, please? I have a couple of questions about the HoudiniSubmitToDeadline parameters that I can't find definitions for in any docs. This url is the most useful: https://docs.thinkboxsoftware.com/products/deadline/10.0/1_User Manual/manual/app-houdini.html Q1 - machine limit & Mantra Threads defaults are 0. Do I need to change this value, or is zero ok? Q2 - "Submit Houdini Scene" is OFF by default. Is this correct? Q3 - "Ignore Inputs" is ON by default. Which inputs is it referring to?? It's currently only rendering successfully if I DONT generate .ifds first, which is obviously not correct. I am ticking on "DiskFile" in the Driver tab of /out/mantra1 Disk file = $JOB/ifds/$HIPNAME/mantra_$F4.ifd Shared Temp storage = $HIP/ifds/storage Local Temp storage = $HOUDINI_TEMP_DIR/ifds/storage I launch Render->SubmitHoudiniToDeadline Pool = 3d group = None ROP to Render = Choose = /out/mantra1 Under MantraExport Submit DependentMantraStandalone Job is checked ON Pool = 3d group = None 2 tasks are submitted, which is normal. First task generates .ifds again (I think this can be avoided by select SkipFilesThatExist in /out/mantra1 IMAGES tab Second task is supposed to write .exrs but fails. Yes, the folder is writeable. Pipeline are looking into the error: INFO: Process exit code: 1 2018-01-05 17:14:03: 0: An exception occurred: Error: Renderer returned non-zero error code, 1. Check the log for more. 2018-01-05 17:14:03: at Deadline.Plugins.PluginWrapper.RenderTasks Any pointers gratefully received. Many thanks, Olly : )
