Cannot perform background render...

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there

a very frustrated noob here. I recently moved from another 3d aplication, and Im a newby in Houdini.

I did a pyro simulation ( following a tutorial ) and I wanted to do " Save to disk in background " to cache sim ( in geo Pyro Import Node / Dop Import Pyrofields ) but I constantly get  message " Cannot perform background render with unsaved changes.Save your file before proceeding."

I saved pretty everything I know; project path, sim path ( also tryed ctrl + s) etc. I also checked title in file path so there's no empty space between letters.

What am I doing wrong. What else do I need to save, or Im doing it wrong way ?

I could not find step by step anywhere explained anything related to " save to disk in background " issue with this message.

Could someone pls explain step by step  ( if it does not take too much time ) how it should be done so I can check if I did something wrong.

I'd very apreciate it and it would help me a lot.

 

Ty very much in advance.
