Hi,

Does anybody know how to submit a "A Simple Parent-Child Example" : http://www.sidefx.co...ationships.html

Or how to submit a dependency chain out of Houdini. Like, Simulation --> Meshing --> Rendering. It's simple in Houdini on one machine but how to take it over to Hqueue?

Cheers,

not ideal but just send 2 jobs to Hqueue - once the first sim one has finished - the next meshing and rendering one can begin.

Thanks Zweger,

but this is how I did it as usual. I would like to create a bit more complex dependencies.

Maybe I just have to script it by myself. I think there is an Python API in Hqueue.

Cheers,

very useful, thanks.

Do you know by any chance know if it possible to specify children inside children jobs so to create more complex arrays of dependencies?

If you're using the Python API to send your job you can set children jobs in a child job yes, a child job is  a normal job, so you can add

 

job{ command:"your command

       children:[

            childrenjob{

                               command:"your children command"

                               children:[...other children if any etc...]

                              }

                     ]

     }

 

Hope this is clear :)
