Softimage / Realflow - Not updating rfMesh
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:43:04 PM »
When rendering a realflow mesh using softimage and Qube, the rfMesh does not update. If your scene is 45 frames long, you will get whatever frame you saved your scene at 45 times.

Are you splitting the render up across multiple machines?

Try submitting the job with "XSI Batchrender" as 1 subjob, and set the 'Range Execution" mode to 1 partition, so that you get 1 agenda item (1 "frame") that is comprised of the entire frame range, as in "1-45".

That way, 1 machine will pick up the job, and solve the mesh for frames 1-45 in one continuous pass.

no dice ... the scene does not update ..it stays on the frame that you were on when you submitted the job.

Here is a snippent from Qube
