Mantra rendering statistics

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am rendering a scene in Houdini 17.0.459 with "Render to disk in Background" option and verbose level 5. Where I can find the log file on Windows?

it goes to console that will pop-up as a separate window. you have to enable "output to console" option on rop driver too. it's not enough to dial a number on verbose slider in reder statistics. annoying.

Hi, David, thanks!
A bit confused here... I can`t find "output to console" option. I can`t find the Statistics tab in docs.

And after submitting the render I close Houdini to save memory, shouldn`t console window close with Houdini as well in this case? 
Or maybe I render my shots in the wrong way?

Verbose to console flag in Command parameter did not change anything, Console Window did not appear...

hm... it certainly works for me. I remember thou, at some point this was broken and the solution was to force the console pop-up in houdini.env config file. i think the env variable for this is

HOUDINI_WINDOW_CONSOLE = 1

i'm not on windows now so can't test it... check this docs page anyways: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/ref/env.html
