Hey all!

Trying to figure out how to render my Houdini scenes on our farm w/out an engine license, if at all possible, since we only have one.

I've managed to get Mantra running just fine using a pretty simple ifd workflow.

We're using Redshift on a new project and we can toss a few cards into our render nodes.
We've got a floating license setup for Redshift that seems to work fine w/Max.

So my question is this:
Do I need a Houdini engine license to execute Redshift renders on the farm?
Can I export .rs like I would ifds and just have hqueue process those?

My alternative is pipe my RS files back into Max (ick)!

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Good morning,
Did you have any luck with the licensing/rendering on the render farm?

I got mine working with Deadline and Mantra, but not with Redshift.
I purchased another Redshift render license ($264), but still no luck.

Current set up-

Workstation- (Precision 7920, FX Houdini)

Render Node- (Poweredge R630)
