Description

I'm still working on support for V-Ray standalone renderer.

What's still missing:
  • vray exits always with status 1 (enable workaround or wait for next version)
  • render directory is not setable (currently, I edit the vscene file)
  • the frame images have no number in the filename (edit the vscene file or wait for next version)

History

#1 Updated by Andreas Schröder over 9 years ago

  • Status changed from New to In progress

#2 Updated by Andreas Schröder over 9 years ago

I will have to wait for the next version of V-Ray standalone for OSX to continue development for this ticket.

#3 Updated by Andreas Schröder over 9 years ago

I'm currently switched to Linux for V-Ray support development.

There's a new version available:

===============================================
V-Ray Standalone, version 0.10.13 for x64

Build from Sep  9 2008, 22:12:40
Compiled with GCC-compatible compiler, version 4.1
Operating system is Linux

V-Ray core version is 1.60.16
===============================================

Some news:
  • V-Ray standalone now exists with a proper exit status
  • output frames are now numbered when you force the output filename
    /opt/autodesk/maya/vray/bin/vray -scenefile="test1.vrscene" -display=0 -autoClose=1 -imgFile="output.tif" -frames=1
    
  • the render directory is still not settable (we can force a output filename or edit the vrscene)

#4 Updated by Andreas Schröder over 9 years ago

  • Status changed from In progress to Fixed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I'm testing a new V-Ray for Maya/standalone version.

/opt/autodesk/maya/vray/bin/vray -scenefile="vray_test1.vrscene" -display=0 -autoClose=1 -imgFile="output.tif" -frames=3

This generates the image file "output.0003.tif".
The output directory is still not settable via command line. In DrQueueOnRails, this is solved through editing the vrscene file.

This ticket seems to be solved for me. But I will add another new ticket for an integration into Drqman.
