Fusion 9 Linux Render Node

PostSat Aug 12, 2017 12:50 pm

Good afternoon Forum.

After a morning of trying many options, I got a Linux node to render some PNGs.

I found the following limitations:

a) If you use any font, it must be available in exactly the name name and with the same options as the font defined in the Comp.

b) The images formats seem to be the only valid output options. I tried PNG, HDR, RAW and various others. You can change the name of the output file series just before submitting the Comp. It's quite difficult to get exactly the same path definitions across Linux and Mac.

c) Both the software and OpenGL renderers work for me.

So here's the questions:

i) Is there any way to find a detailed log? "Incorrect Argurment" is not particularly helpful as a message, in this case trying to output H264:

Code: Select all
12/Aug/17 12:21:10 "/Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/TestRenderNode.comp" stopped at frame 0 (0h 0m 0.12s)

12/Aug/17 12:51:19 andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) has been reassigned
12/Aug/17 12:51:19  - andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) closed the comp /Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/TestRenderNode.comp.
12/Aug/17 12:51:19  + andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) disconnected, did 0 frames of /Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/TestRenderNode.comp


It would be great to get Quicktime output to work.

So getting on to more useful renders, I started to increase the complexity of the Compostions I'm sending to the Linux node.

It would appear that some materials have issues:

Code: Select all
12/Aug/17 14:30:30  - andy-all-series assigned to /Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/Grinder.comp
12/Aug/17 14:31:57  - andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) is loaded & ready to render /Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/Grinder.comp

12/Aug/17 14:33:56    andy-all-series (10.2.0.1): Renderer3D1:  Render aborted.
12/Aug/17 14:33:56    andy-all-series (10.2.0.1): Saver1 cannot get Parameter for Input at time 0
12/Aug/17 14:33:56    andy-all-series (10.2.0.1): Saver1 failed at time 0
12/Aug/17 14:33:56  = ERROR: andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) *failed* frame 0 of /Volumes/Arcea18TB/StructureSynth/FusionComps/Grinder.comp
12/Aug/17 14:33:56 andy-all-series (10.2.0.1) has been reassigned



So I thought I'd set up a Mac to do this as a Render Node, and got this issue:

Code: Select all
