redshift Error opening the tile device

Recommended Posts

Hey my Render View is working absolutely fine but if I wanna render to Disk I always get a short freeze followed by an 
Error:
Error opening the tile device.

I’m using 
RedShift V. 2.6.41
and Houdini 17.5.173

Hope somebody can help me with that.5cefefbecfef8_Anmerkung2019-05-30164312.jpg.480207baffb020810fe2c82e1f42af1e.jpg

Sounds strange, I'd suggest rolling-back to a previous version.  I'm still on 2.6.38 and have never seen this error when disk rendering.

Disable the Render to Mplay under the Output tab.

Just look in your target render folder for images.

What is happening is that each time a frame is rendered, MPlay uses a little more memory. If your frame sequence is long enough, MPlay will consume all physical ram and produce the Tile error inside of Redshift when it requests more memory for the new frame.

Hello guys, I'm using exactly the same versions (Houdini 17.5.173 and Redshift 2.6.41) and I'm facing the same issue. Disabling the Render to Mplay under the Output tab doesn't seems to fix the issue.

Also, every time I click on "Render on disk", Redshift crashes after a short while. Here is a short video to show you my problem : https://drive.google.com/file/d/18-_iGEg8YkIcTIlVEG0iBMsYmqVYYr1U/view?usp=sharing

I see that Redshift is crashing each time at "Mem for SS inputs" so I suspect memory issue but don't know much more as I'm on Win10 and can't manage to redirect the output of the Houdini console log to a cmd shell...

Anyone have any advice to solve this issue ? Thanks a lot :)

if it's the same problem as above, as explained, it's a memory problem with mplay.

it's happen also with more recent versions. When rendering high res or long animations you must use render to disk and disable the "render to mplay" option.

Thanks for your answer, but as explained above and as you can see on the video I have posted, when I'm disabling the "render to mplay" option and clicking on "Render on disk", this wouldn't work : Redshift crashes after a short while. It's exactly my issue and I don't know how to solve it.

Yesterday, I tried to update Redshift to 2.6.54 (Houdini still 17.5.173) and this time, when disabling the "Bake render map" option, I can render out images on disk and to MPlay. However, when enabling the "Bake render map" option, I would have the exact same issue as before : Redshift crashes each time (when clicking on "Render on disk" and the "Render to Mplay" option still disabled)... So I'm still having the same issue

Because of the many houdini updates the developer only supports certain versions.
With recent versions only the latest 17.5 is supported.

support for 17.5.173 is dropped since 2.6.44

2.6.44 (2019.07)
* [Houdini] Added support for H17.5.293 and dropped support for H17.5.173

If you're lucky it can work, but if you get problems... better to update your houdini version.

You can find the complete list of release and drop in the release notes of the doc.
