Render IFD TOP node

Creates work items that render an IFD with Mantra

On this page

Generates work items that render an IFD file using Mantra. By default the node will look for IFD files on the upstream items, however the file can be specified manually using the IFD Path parameter.

Parameters

Work Item Generation

Whether this node generates static or dynamic work items. You should generally leave this set to "Automatic" unless you know the node’s work items can be computed statically, or that they need to be generated dynamically.

Dynamic

This node always creates dynamic work items: it waits until the upstream work items are known, and generates new work items from the upstream work items.

Static

This node always creates static work items: it creates the number of work items it thinks it needs based on the parameters (and any upstream static items) before the network runs.

Automatic

If the input is static (a static processor, or a partitioner with only static inputs, or a mapper), this node generates static work items, otherwise it generates dynamic work items.

IFD Path

When enabled, this specifies the path to the IFD file to render.

Output Path

Overrides the image output file name.

Extra Mantra Args

Specifies extra arguments that will be passed to the Mantra executable when rendering the IFD.
