Urgent Question about Distributed Rendering
« on: October 24, 2011, 08:44:20 PM »
Hi,

i tryed to render a Print Size Image with distributed Rendering on Rebus Farm.

The Renderfarm shows up some Errors and declines Rendering via Distributed Rendering.

The log File shows up thjose Errors.


Render Settings:

 --- Error --- Common: Keyframes found. No animation allowed for Distributed render, please remove keys from scene
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Editable_Mesh:_forest_template_Low Animated Plane @ [0.000000,0.000000,0.000000]
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Editable_Mesh:_forest_template_Medium Animated Plane @ [0.000000,0.000000,0.000000]
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Editable_Mesh:_forest_template_High Animated Plane @ [0.000000,0.000000,0.000000]
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Object:VRayProxy_wild-grass a1 01 @ [3098.655762,-29.848068,0.000001]

 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Forest:Forest003 @ [139.404297,265.494537,0.000000]
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Object:VRayProxy001 @ [3072.625000,-29.912109,0.000000]
 --- Error --- Keyframe Object: $Editable_Mesh:flower @ [3099.717529,-36.544662,-0.050499]


It seems that Forest Pro automaticly generates Keyframes and im not able to find them in Track View.


Any help would be nice since i have a very tight deadline.


Best regards

Björn

I didn't know this limitation on Rebus Farm... :-\

Forest adds some hidden meshes in the scene, which are used for the billboards. They are scaled to zero size, and placed in the layer "_forest_templates". Some of them are animated (as the _forest_template_Low Animated Plane).

You cannot delete these objects (because they are recreated), but you cannot remove their keyframes if needed. Use select by name to pick them.

I'm not sure if this would be the problem, because i see other objects in the log. Anyways, aside from these templates, Forest doesn't add other keyframes in any way.
