  1. Networks sims using Deadline or HQueue

    hey guys, So I got a new workstation this week, and i'm trying to setup my old system as a render/simulation node. I did get mantra rendering to work using deadline, but simulations aren,t working for some reason. I'm getting this error (see attached image) I also tried HQueue, but all my jobs keep failing there. HQueue does see both my computers, but it immediately fails when I submit a job (either render or sim) I'm on windows and I'm using Houdini Indie. Any ideas?
  2. Hey guys, i just found out, that it's possible to let several machines render on the same frame over the network with Mantra, similiar to VRay Distributed Rendering for example. I tested it out and it seems to work. The render statistics explicitly list the different machines and their contribution in percent. One thing though seems a little strange: I encounter no performance boost. Instead of doing more work in the same timeframe, Mantra seems to just distribute the existing work. The satelites, as well as my own machine, dont run at 100% but at 30% instead. If i turn of -H, my machine runs at 100% again. I have "Use Max Processors" turned on. Also tested around with the tiled render options.... Anybody any ideas? A VRay DR equivalent in Mantra sounds pretty awesome
  3. Hqueue server can't start

    Hi guys! I can't get my Hqueue server start, it stops after a second automatically, I checked the "errors.log" under "C:\HQueueServer" this is the messages: Traceback (most recent call last): File

load failed: ps: I have another computer installed, and it's running without problem. the two computers have same system and hardware configuration, I read one of the post which got the same error and is from one year ago, said that is related to one of the windows update, but I didn't have that update, but it give me a hint it might still a python related problem rather than Houdini itself. so I wonder if there are indeed some dll can't be imported, how can I fix that? or another windows update messed with python?
