Lops with Arnold, basic questions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

So I'm getting started with arnold through lops. The solaris workshop from sidefx is great but since we use arnold I'm missing a few pieces of the puzzle.

1. Aovs, is it correct that I need to create one rendervar node per AOV I want to export? I have tried both Raw type with "RGBA", "N" etc and LPEs: "C<RD>A" but don't get any output.

2. Is it correct that after the rendervars are defined we add a renderproduct node to reference all the rendervars, and give the image a name, is this where we add frame padding and fileformat, .exr?

3. Rendering with arnold standalone. After the "renderproduct" we add "rendersettings" and "usdrender_rop", none of those has any settings for exporting .ass files, do we render the final shot-usd file directly? And in that case what do we submit to deadline for example, a husk-job? If so what sort of licenses are used to pick up husk jobs?

Any clarifications are greatly appreciated.
