May I know is it possible to submit separate Redshift Archive and standalone jobs? There are limited engine licenses available so it will be ideal to write out Redshift Archive files then have standalone Redshift jobs render them. The functionality is available through the Deadline ROP but I don't see how to set that up with TOPs.

Cheers!

What is the Deadline ROP doing? Just guessing, since I don't have Redshift installed: I think you would have to set up a ROP Fetch TOP that cooks the Redshift ROP first in 'archive' mode followed by a ROP Fetch TOP that cooks in 'render' mode. These would both be using houdini engine licenses. Possibly the render step could be done with a pure python script or generic generator so it doesn't use an engine license. This is what the Render IFD and USD Render TOP nodes do.

PDG ROP Fetch TOP - but, take care that you single thread this operation, or it will flood your GPU with job(s).
