I have in the past had some success with rendering on the cloud with Amazon's EC2 rendering option with the Hqueue node, however I keep getting a failed frame when I test it. The farm

It says “export HOUDINI_PYTHON_VERSION=2.7 && export HFS=/opt/hfs15.0 && cd $HFS && source houdini_setup && hython $HFS/houdini/scripts/hqueue/hq_cloud_render_choose_hfs.py”

/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /opt/hfs15.0: No such file or directory

I'm not sure what to do. I am working on a mac, so the /opt/ must be referring to a linux machine on the farm. I'm not sure how to work around this issue. I've tried multiple versions of houdini and multiple tests, all with the same result.

I started using Gridmarkets cloud rendering and it works straight out of the box, they gave me complimentary credits and it's super fast.

Thanks!

Thank you. The houdini forum seems to always have unrelated search results for me so it's hard to find topics that already exist.
