Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering

I have gotten back into animation. I've been using five workstations to produce the segments needed to build my final product. I decided this morning to use the Render Farm to handle some work in the background. The .png images produced via the farm are missing content; floors, ceilings, walls. The first image is what the frame should look like, the second image is a product of the Render Farm. This is reproducible on this model only.

The high rise in the background of the second image is a background image.

What should I be looking for to remedy this?

Does it render correctly if you do a batch rendering on the farm at the same resolution?  Are all of the frames on all of the farm machines producing similar output?

Roy, I haven't attempted a batch rendering with this configuration. I did run a single image on the farm and got the same result.

All images from all farm machines produced the same result when rendering the animation frames on the farm.

Note that this is the eval version, only two machines at a time. Although, I have six farm machines available and at times the farm monitor indicated that it was using as many as four machines to process any particular job.

I test rendered isolating individual pairs of machines and get the same result.

This model was originally created in ACAD 2010 in January 2011. Initial nXt material assignment was with build 249.

I'm going to recreate the model in 2012 or 13 and start over so as to get finished with this job, but It sure would be nice to know what has gone wrong. I am identifying other models that were created at the same time on that same machine and configuration to test.

I'd love to have this model.  I don't have any open issues with the farm at the moment.

Message with link to file sent. This is a big ugly model thrown together in a hurry.

I rendered three views with the BATCH feature. Results are the same. These are the JPG output from the Image Editor.

Roy. Don't spend any time on this mess on my account. I pulled the next model in the series. This one was derived entirely from the one with problems rendering on the farm. The only difference is some changes to columns and lighting. It is rendering fine. The images below from a series rendered with the BATCH tool and the farm

  • Can you share you lighting fixtures on the wall?
  • How did you get the beams to work out so nicely.
  • Nice rendering by the way.
  • E0, E1 or E4?
  • How many passes?

You're welcome to them Akin. I don't understand your question about beams....do you mean the columns?

These were quick test renderings done with E0 at low resolution 640x380 for 20 passes.

I'm not-- I'm spending time on it on my account.  There's some reason it's not writing the .nXtModel file correctly, perhaps a bug, perhaps a problem with the AutoCAD drawing.

Well good then, your work is certainly appreciated. There are over forty files all derived from the same geometry in that series. Way too hot to be outside today, so I am going to go through them to identify those which will not render correctly. 

Thanks Roy

I meant the light rays from the wall light fixtures.

Using your wall sconce this is what I got.Not exactly what I want. How did you get them to radiate out and showing on the wall.

"Some of the engines do a better job than others with these.  The Hybrid engine in nXt work pretty well.  AccuRender Studio should handle this sort of lighting very well, with little to no performance penalty."

IMPORTING 3DS AND OBJ FILES WITHOUT LOSING THEIR TEXTURE MAPS

Good day everyone,Does anyone know how to import obj and 3ds files into autocad without having the models lose their textures ?I have imported so many but they dont come with their textures.See More

Led Lights - Iluminação indireta

Por favor , há anos que não consigo uma solução... Eu preciso de uma orientação sobre como proceder para representar iluminação INDIRETA em sanca de gesso.Não temos mais a antiga opção de Linear Light que já existiu no Accurender. Então como fazer? Me sugeriram aplicar omnidirectional light em vários cilindros pequenos para simular isso, mas convenhamos, além de não ser prático , é muito ineficaz e irreal porque a luz fica manchada em partes ao invés de um facho linear que conseguíamos fazer no…See More
