Hi all,

After wanting to shoot myself in the head multiple times, I finally have HQueue up and running on my mini OSX render farm. I have an iMac workstation and two mac minis as render nodes. I can successfully render via HQueue when I use Mantra. But for some reason, it won't let me render with Arnold.

When I use an Arnold ROP, it keeps giving me the error


My output path is using $HIP/render/$HIPNAME.$OS.$F4.png which is the exact same output path used in the Mantra ROP successfully.



Does anyone know what I or Houdini might be doing wrong?

I'm using Houdini Indie 17.0.459 and Arnold 3.2.2

In case anyone was wondering how this turned out, I finally gave up and installed Deadline. Everything worked first time.

Could it have been a problem with the .ass path?
