Heey it's me, again. Still about Deadline. Please note there is some progression here, I've now reached the rendering steps! Yay!
So that's more of a question for now : I created the IFD locally for now, but whenever I try to send them on the farm using a deadline scheduler, the default behaviour creates one job per frame. Obviously with 16 wedges of 200 frames each it's a bit overkill.
I'm looking to reproduce the default deadline behaviour which is to create one job with 200 tasks for each of my wedges.
I tried partionning before submitting with a frame range defined in the scheduler, but the machines seem to never be able to complete their task AND they all seem to be trying to render the first Ifd 200 times instead of the 200 ifds once.
Question is : using PDG, is creating a deadline Mantra job with multiple tasks, one for each frame, possible, or does the renderifd node requires more customisation at this point ?
