Vray updating instances
The installation process for these scripts can be found below.You can also submit V-Ray Spawner jobs for Rhino and Sketchup from the Monitor.
Note, if you submit the job via the Monitor submission script, that you will need to manually configure/update your local workstation settings to point to the correct, corresponding Deadline slaves over an identical port number.
The job’s ID and Status will be tracked in the submitter, and as nodes pick up the job, they will show up in the Active Servers list.
Once you are happy with the server list, press Start Render (3ds Max and Maya) or Render Current Pass/Render All Passes (Softimage) to start distributed rendering.
This makes our system more flexible and resilient to crashes as when we terminate the V-Ray DBR job in the Deadline queue, the Deadline Slave application will ‘cleanly’ tidy up V-Ray Spawner/Standalone and more importantly, any DCC application (3ds Max/Maya) or Standalone instances which it in turn has spawned as a child process.
This can be helpful if V-Ray DBR becomes unstable and a user wishes to reset the system remotely.
Note, if you modify the Maximum Servers value, the job’s frame range will be updated when this button is pressed or if “Automatically Update Server List” is enabled.
