advanced rendering for AutoCAD
I am new to render farm, i am trying to render an animation with two pc. the result in the farm directories are 600 black images, any input
thanks in advance
It's normally very easy to use. The best way to proceed is probably for me to try it over here. There is an upload link where you can send the drawing. Include any special instructions in the comment section.
If you don't wish to do that, you can try sending an animation of a very simple model to your farm and see if that works.
Roy I render with a small drawing and the render fram 3d slide worked fine, I uploaded the dwg that does not work for you to take a look.
Roy, I feel forgotten. Did you have a chance to look at thte drawing? thanks
Working on Alejandro's now. One obvious problem is that "plan perspectives" don't work with the 3d slide show-- a known limitation. This has nothing to do with the render farm. If you start your animation from frame 1 it won't render without the farm either.
I've actually got this working now (I think). It probably won't make it into the very next build (today?) but it will make it into the one after that. I still have to verify that there's nothing wrong with the farm and then move on to Trevor's problem to see if it's the same or something different.
Roy when I render a 3dslide show with out the render farm the first and last 17 images render black, the rest render correctly. when using render farm all the images render black. i imagine this happens because I start with a plan perspective.
Not sure-- I haven't gotten around to checking the render farm yet-- I'm still working on the view interpolation code to try and make it more tolerant of overhead views.
If you want to try it, take out any plan views from your slide show and send it to the farm. Reduce the resolution a lot for your test run.
