In the mean time I rendered it locally which did work fine.. rendered out EXRs with transparent background and used more PDG to run it through some COP network to add a white background and do some minor color tweaks.. works like a charm.

The beauty is now I can go from a single folder with a bunch of fbx files to a bunch product images with a single click, including correct files names, color options, positioning, etc.. awesome stuff!

The fix will be in tomorrow's build. Apologies for not catching it sooner.

Yes, that was it.. finally! No worries, I can see how this bug was a sneaky one

I tried your hip file, and it works fine, but had to make changes to the deadline scheduler paths to my local setup. I noticed though that you still have the local scheduler set as your TOP network's Default TOP Scheduler. Make sure you change that to the Deadline node, then reload the hip file.

Note that the PID is used internally to store intermediate PDG files such as scripts and logs, but that shouldn't affect your ROPFetch. But please double check that the ROPFetch is NOT specifying an External HIP file path.

Are you overriding the job parameters under the Scheduler's tab on the ROPFetch node? Post screenshot of it if you are.

More importantly, can you post screenshots of your Deadline node's parm values for both Scheduler and Job Parms?

Do you have any Mapped Paths in the Deadline Repository Configuration settings? I don't think these should be causing issues, but check that as well.

Thanks for checking but still no go here… I've restarted various times, wiped everything.. double checked everything. No overriding job parms, no mapped paths in deadline. No local schuduler in sight and it really keeps putting things in /pdgtmp/pid so when I find some time today I'll dive into the relevant python bits and see if I can find the problem.
