Arnold frame progress
« on: November 19, 2018, 11:25:21 PM »
Hey everybody,

I'm fairly new to Qube but am in the process of automating some things for a studio I'm at right now. One thing I can't seem to figure out is how to output the Arnold frame progress to the stdout log. Has anyone had any luck with this?

I've tried typing in something like ".*% done" in the regex_progress field on the submit dialog, since Arnold outputs the progress like so:
00:00:15   937MB         |     5% done - 38 rays/pixel
00:00:16   938MB         |    10% done - 21 rays/pixel
00:00:16   938MB         |    15% done - 50 rays/pixel

Unfortunately, this didn't seem to do anything. Is this just the wrong regex to type in? Do I need to do something else?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Eric,

If you look at another job submission like the "Aerender (AppFinder) Job" you might be able to reverse engineer it.  To pull the progress of "3" from a line like:

PROGRESS: 00003 (3): 2 Seconds uses a regex_progress that looks like:

'^PROGRESS:.*\((\d+)\): \d+ Seconds'

If you need more help with this please feel free to open a support ticket and we will help you out.
