AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello again everyone,

 So everything has been going relatively well with the render farm and farm software, but a random question did come up from one of our techs and I didn't have an answer. The question is, with the renderings being run are there local cache files being created that can or should be cleared upon completion or error. This question came up in regards to a problem which occurred from an error'd rendering during a server disruption which resulted in a loop which caused the node to require being restarted after the queue and ongoing renderings had cleared/completed.

Not that I can recall.  If the network goes down in the middle of all of this all bets are off-- it may require clearing out the job folder (in the shared directory) and starting all over -OR- it could be able to pick up where it left off.

Ok, thanks Roy. That's how I addressed the situation when it arose earlier this month, just wanted to be 100% or as close to sure as possible.

"Yeah-- I understand.  I just think you may find you have a similar problem in this new engine with trying to estimate how many passes will be good enough.   That can vary a lot. You're always going have some error, allocating…"

"The problem is when I'm running several renders over a weekend. How will I know how much time to allocate to each one? I wouldn't want them to run for the same amount of time, as one may over-cook to no extra benefit, while another is…"

"It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it."
