HQueue - Invalid output patth specified in output driver July 8, 2020, 3:05 p.m.

Just to be clear, if you use $HIP or $JOB, it does work?
No it doesn't.

But never mind, using Afanasy now, works without any problems and is super fast.

HQueue - Invalid output patth specified in output driver July 7, 2020, 7:29 p.m.

I am trying to submit a very simple Redshift scene to HQueue, but no matter what I type in the output patch I get the same error:

Invalid output path specified in output driver (/out/Redshift_ROP1)
Make sure that either $HIP or $JOB is used in the output path.

I am using $HIP or $JOB just for testing but I want also to be able to specify a custom path anywhere in my network, since I have a NAS I am rendering to.

Also I f I use “render current HIP File”, HQueue is unable to find the file which is also on the NAS.
I am completely at a loss here. All the access rights are set and I and HQueue working in previous versions (kinda).

Uninstall redshift
Erm, you mean I need to uninstall my main production tool only to be able to use Houdini? Without Redshift Houdini is even more useless to me.
The ongoing trouble with Redshift and the Houdini camera system only supports my view that this is in desperate need of an overhaul.
