Forest stopping render slaves from working
« on: August 29, 2012, 02:31:32 PM »
Hi,
Sorry for posting in the forest lite forum, I dont seem to be able to post in the forest pro forum.

We are having serious problems with ForestPro. When we try to do a distributed render with vray, all the render slaves show 'not respoding' in the vray log.
If we uninstall forest, they render as expected (without the forest object obv.)
No useful errors are generated, just 'not responding'.
Vray spawner log shows no errors, since the render never starts.

We've tried udgrading to the latest version,
Made sure our Vray versions match.
Updated max to latest hotfix.
Made sure Forest is in slave mode on the slaves.
Running it through backburner.

We've spent 2 days trying to fix this and we are out of ideas.
Any suggestions?

Max 2013 64bit / Vray 2.30.01 / ForestPro 3.9.4

Cheers,
nat.

To post in the Pro forum you must use the account included with the license (the same of the User Panel). Please, use it to reply... i'm moving this thread to the right forum.

Regarding to your question: have you tried to render a basic test scene ? (a simple distribution using a teapot or similar). First we must check it the problem is global or specific of the production scene.

Meanwhile, i will make some tests here using your configuration, to be sure everything is right.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
I think we've found the culprit. There was an incorrect path for a vrayproxy file being used by forest.

Cheers,
Nat.
